31 Days of the Joys of Autumn - Mini Baked Applesauce Doughnuts With Maple Glaze

Mini Baked Applesauce Doughnuts With Maple Glaze

The kids were over this evening and I was going to make them some of the pumpkin doughnuts that I shared the recipe for last night, but when I searched the cabinet I was out of pumpkin. I had a can of applesauce, though, so I made these doughnuts for the very first time. They turned out quite nice and I think that everyone enjoyed them! It's very possible that they could quickly become one of the joys of autumn! 🍁🍎🍁🍎🍁

Mini Baked Applesauce Doughnuts With Maple Glaze

2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
1 15 oz. can unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon butter, melted


     1 cup powdered sugar
     1/2 teaspoon maple extract
     5 teaspoons milk

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Combine applesauce, milk, eggs, vanilla, and butter in a medium bowl. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Beat until well combined and a smooth batter is formed. Spray mini doughnut pan with pan spray and fill each hole 3/4 full. Bake the doughnuts in a 325 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove doughnuts from oven and remove from pan. Place on a wire rack to cool. Make glaze by mixing powdered sugar, maple extract, and milk together with a wire whisk. Dip one side of each doughnut in glaze, then set back on rack until glaze sets up. Enjoy warm or allow to cool completely before eating. 

Until next time...
