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.

    Hide them from your spouse and kids. Dole them out or they will be gone before you get the kitchen cleaned up.
