tablespoon ground cinnamon
1
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon baking soda

recipe Applesauce Icing
 
Homemade Applesauce and/or sweetened whipped cream (optional)
 
Ground cinnamon and/or ground nutmeg (optional)
 
Apple peel ribbons (optional)

Directions

  1. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, the 1 tablespoon cinnamon, the salt, and baking soda. In another large bowl whisk together eggs and egg yolk. Add sugar, the 1 cup Homemade Applesauce, the buttermilk, and melted butter; whisk until well mixed. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture. Use your hands to mix together until all of the flour is moistened. Cover and chill dough about 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out dough to a 1/2 inch thickness. Cut dough with a floured 2 1/2-inch doughnut cutter, rerolling dough as necessary. Fry doughnuts, two or three doughnuts and doughnut holes at a time, in deep hot oil (365 degrees F) for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden, turning once. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain.
  3. Dip warm doughnuts and doughnut holes in Applesauce Icing. If desired, serve with whipped cream and/or additional applesauce; sprinkle with additional cinnamon and/or nutmeg. If desired, garnish with apple peel ribbons.
