  • ½ cup graham cracker crumbs

  • ⅓ cup milk chocolate chips
  • 6 tablespoons marshmallow cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a medium size bowl using an electric mixer, mix together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and then mix in the sour cream.
  3. in a separate medium size bowl whisk together the flour, graham cracker crumbs, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  4. Add dry mixture to the creamed mixture alternately with the milk until just moistened; and then fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Lightly spray 6 muffin cups with cooking spray, and fill the other 6 half full of water. Fill muffin tins ¼ full of batter followed by 1 tablespoon of marshmallow cream. (I sprayed the measuring spoon with cooking to help keep the marshmallow cream from sticking.) Divide the remaining batter between the 6 cups over the top of the marshmallow cream.
  6. Bake for 14 – 16 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean. Let the muffins cool for 5 minutes and then place them on a wire rack.

Apple Cider Doughnuts Recipe with Chocolate Glaze

apple cider doughnuts recipe

apple cider doughnuts

I don’t make doughnuts very often because I always think of them as being a lot of work. When I saw this Apple Cider Doughnuts Recipe I thought it looked really good. I happen to have some fresh apple cider on hand so I decided to give them a try.

This is a simple recipe that doesn’t even require the use o of a rolling pin – you push the dough flat using your hands, and then cut the doughnuts. This recipe does take a little time because the dough has to refrigerate 1 hour before you can cut the dough and form the doughnuts. I used a deep fryer to fry the doughnuts, but I am sure a Dutch oven with cooking oil would also work out fine.

For the glaze, I used chocolate, which pared very well with this recipe, but you could eliminate the glaze completely if you wanted, or use your favorite glaze recipe.

These Apple Cider Doughnuts are delicious – give them a try this fall with some fresh apple cider; you won’t be disappointed this is almost a fool proof recipe. Enjoy
