Oven Baked Apple Donuts

Makes about 24 mini donuts

1/4 cup of lightly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup of white sugar
1 1/2 cups of bite size chunks of apple, peeled and cored
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp nutmeg
1/3 cup of cold butter, cut into small pieces
1 egg
1/4 cup of milk


1/4 cup of butter, melted
1/3 cup of sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder

Preheat your oven to 350F. 

Whisk the flour, baking powder, sugars, salt and and nutmeg in a bowl.  Using a fork or pasty blender, cut in to the cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 

In a separate bowl, beat the egg. Mix in the milk and fold in the chopped apples. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture. Stir using a spatula or spoon making sure not to over mix.

Place a spoonful of batter into each mold of a buttered mini muffin pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the doughnuts are golden brown.

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the donuts are just golden. Remove from the oven, unmold and lightly brush each donut with the melted butter. Dunk in a bowl with the sugar and cinnamon mixed in. Shake off excess sugar.

Serve immediately with a ice cold glass of milk or warm cup of coffee
***Freezes beautifully - serve right out of freezer, or warm ***
