I really like pumpkin, but my all-time favorite fall inspired flavor is apple cider. And really there is no better way to enjoy apple cider than in the form of a doughnut covered in apple cider caramel. Am I right?? These cake donuts are light, fluffy, and oh so tasty, and since they are baked and full of apples, then maybe they might be considered a little bit healthy (maybe compared to fried doughnuts??). I’m just kidding, I wouldn’t want to ruin a delicious doughnut by making it healthy.
Now let’s talk about this Apple Cider Caramel Glaze. The deliciousness just won’t stop. The glaze is not like regular caramel. I make it a little thinner and the glaze just absorbs into the doughnut making it even more fantastic. The apple cider and caramel are a match made in heaven–think caramel apple meets a spice cake.
