Apple Cinnamon Cake Donuts


Apples and cinnamon are two of my favorite fall flavors.  I have been buying a lot of apples to enjoy, but sometimes I cannot eat them fast enough.  I had a few apples that I wanted to use up quickly so I decided to make a very easy Apple and Cinnamon Cake Donut.  What makes these donuts easy?  Cake mix, of course!

I also added applesauce, apple cider and ginger to really bring home that fall flavor.  Adding the apple sauce also makes these a little more figure friendly since there is no butter or oil in the batter. 


To make these cake donuts you also need the help from a donut pan.  Now if you do not have a donut pan you can add a little more liquid (I'll tell you how much) and you can make delicious muffins cakes instead.

These donuts are moist, full of bits of apple goodness and spice.   You can eat them for breakfast, dessert or as a snack with a cup of tea or coffee.    Don't let fall pass you by without trying these apple delights.
