  • In a large bowl beat 1 cup of the sugar and the butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until combined. Beat in the 1 cup reduced cider and the buttermilk. Add flour mixture; beat just until combined.

Instructions Checklist
  • Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with parchment paper. To prevent dough from sticking, sprinkle paper generously with additional flour. Using a spatula, carefully spread dough in the prepared baking pan to about 1/2-inch thickness; sprinkle with additional flour. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a Dutch oven heat 2 inches of oil to 350°F. Cut dough with a floured 1-inch round cutter, occasionally dipping cutter into flour between cuts.** Fry doughnuts, a few at a time, in hot oil for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until golden, turning once. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Roll in cinnamon-sugar to coat. If desired, serve with Chocolate-Maple Dipping Sauce and/or Cider-Caramel Dipping Sauce.

*Tip:

To make 1/4 cup sour milk, place 1 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to make 1/4 cup total liquid; stir. Let stand for 5 minutes before using.

**Tip:

These doughnuts are flat when you cut them, but will puff up to golf ball shapes when they are fried.
