These "hole-less" treats came from my mother-in-law's recipe box. She would be 92 if she was still living. She raised 4 sons who were all born within 6 years of each other. I bet she rarely got to eat very many of these when she made them!

How To Make baked apple doughnuts

  • 1
    Grease muffins or mini muffin pans - whichever size you like best. Do NOT use cupcake liners in the pan.
  • 2
    Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Blend well, but gently. The doughnuts will thank your efforts by being tender.
  • 3
    Fill the muffin tins 2/3 full and bake 15-25 minutes at 350° depending on the size of muffin tins you use. Use the toothpick test to check for done-ness.
  • 4
    While the muffins are still hot, gently roll or dip them in the melted butter and then the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • 5
    Hide them from your spouse and kids. Dole them out or they will be gone before you get the kitchen cleaned up.
