How to Make Pumpkin/cider doughnuts


  1. Mix all wet ingredients..here's where it's a bit tricky..when it comes to the molasses, boiled cider and almond milk..take a one cup measuring cup put in molasses..it will be almost half a cup .then add your boiled cider to same cup..leaving enough room for the 1/4 cup almond milk..molasses and boiled cider measurements are approximate..but almond milk is def. 1/4 cup..(note: if you have enough molasses.. You could leave out cider and just use 1 cup molasses and a splash or 2 of the almond milk), then when you have all liquids mixed together ..mix your baking powder and baking soda with 3 1/2 cups flour.add to wet mixture...mix well..at this point you will want to change to dough hooks on your mixer..then add the remaining 3 cups flour..turn out onto lightly floured surface..flour hands so to work with dough...pat dough with floured hands to barely coat wet dough..roll out to about 1/4 inch thick..( important not to roll out any less )..heat oil to 375°.. Fry doughnuts about 2 minutes per side..
