5 – Add donut mixture to a large piping bag, and pipe mixture into donut baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

6 – In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter, vanilla, apple cider, ground cinnamon and confectioners’ sugar. If glaze is too thick, add a tiny bit of water.

7 – Once donuts are removed from the oven, carefully transfer them to a wire rack and spoon the glaze over the donuts. The glaze will set better on hot/warm donuts.

Tip: Place plastic wrap or parchment paper under the wire rack, so you can reuse the glaze that falls off the donuts.

How do I store my homemade apple cider donuts?

Homemade donuts are best served fresh, or within one day for best results. Cover donuts and leave at room temperature for 2 days at most.
