Cindy Rice


I came up with this recipe cause I'm still out if maple syrup and wanted to use up some pumpkin I had leftover in the fridge..was gonna call them pumpkin pie doughnuts..but put some boiled cider in..you can really taste the pumpkin..also this is NOT my killer recipe for maple cider doughnuts..but will post that another time..it is similar to this recipe ..these are very good..I added only 5 heaping tablespoons of nutmeg, but I usually add 6..hope y'all like them..NOTE: you can use 1% milk if ya prefer..:)

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..
