Apple Cider Mini Donuts with Maple Glaze

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  Since I do not have to cook the turkey dinner it's time to use my babycakes machine again. It's so easy and fun.  I wanted to try another one of Aimee's recipes at .  The Apple Cider Donuts sounded so yummy.  Of course I replaced 1/4 cup of sugar for 1/4 cup of my dad's maple syrup (forgot to put in picture, oops).  Apple and maple syrup, what could be better?

adapted from Shugary Sweets

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt

Cooking Directions
  1. Mix all dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Add maple syrup, eggs, apple cider, apple sauce, and vanilla. Using a mixer on medium speed, blend until smooth.
  2. Fill each cooking reservoir with about 2 tbsp of batter.
  3. Bake 2-4 minutes or until toothpick inserted in donut comes out clean. Makes about 24-28 donuts.    

Mmmm...can you smell them?  I used a different glaze then Aimee.  I made a Maple Glaze to enhance the maple flavor I put in the mini donuts.

by The Sweet Chick

  • 1 3/4 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 - 4 tbsp pure maple syrup

Cooking Directions
  1. Blend together sugar and syrup. Add more maple syrup to make a glaze consistency.
  2. Dip donuts in glaze and place on wire rack to allow glaze to set up.

I added sprinkles to some of them for the kids.  The donuts were delish!  I didn't hear any complaints.


  1. I just got done baking donuts! Yours are gorgeous!!

  2. Thanks Averie. Yours are pretty good looking too. I tried the peanut butter chocolate ones and the were yummy! I have to try your cinnamon ones next.
