I have not made these doughnuts but they look so good. I am in love with this cooking website:http://www.culinaryconcoctionsbypeabody.com/ This recipe and picture is all from her blog. I hope she doesn't mind sharing.
Vermont Apple Cider Doughnuts
1 cup apple cider
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup solid vegetable shortening
2 large eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp.baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
vegetable oil or shortening -for frying
2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup apple cider
For glaze, mix confectioners’ sugar and cider.
Dip doughnuts while warm;
serve warm.(I didn’t dip, I just drizzled the glaze over them)
Boil apple cider in small saucepan until it is reduced to 1/4 cup, 8 to 10 minutes; cool.
Beat sugar with shortening until smooth. Add eggs and mix well, then add buttermilk and reduced cider.
Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg in another bowl. Add to liquid ingredients; mix just enough to combine. Transfer dough to lightly floured board and pat to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2- to 3-inch doughnut cutter; reserve doughnut holes and reroll and cut scraps.
Add enough oil or shortening to fill a deep pan 3 inches; heat to 375′F. Fry several doughnuts at a time, turning once or twice, until browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Remove to paper towels with slotted spoon.
