It's the last Monday of the month which means it's Secret Recipe Club. This month I was assigned Making Miracles written by Rebekah. Rebekah recently had a beautiful baby girl. Congratulations Rebekah! I couldn't believe that after having her baby, she was still updating her blog...WOW!!! After I had my boys, whenever I had some spare time all I wanted to do was sleep. But then again I wasn't blogging back then either.
After browsing Rebekah's blog I decided to make her Baked Apple Cinnamon Doughnuts. The boys have been loving have doughnuts for breakfast so I thought these would be a hit in our home. I replaced some of the flour with whole wheat flour and use coconut sugar as well. I didn't find the doughnuts had a strong apple flavour. I think next time I would try adding some fresh apple to the doughnuts. The doughnuts were a hit with the boys and I will definitely be adding them to the breakfast line up! Thank you for sharing the recipe Rebekah!
Baked Whole Wheat Cinnamon Applesauce Doughnuts
Adapted from Making Miracles
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
6 tbsp coconut sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
6 tbsp milk
1 tbsp orange juice
1/4 tsp white vinegar
1/3 cup applesauce
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp butter, melted (I used margarine)
Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease a doughnut pan.
In a large bowl, mix together flours, coconut sugar, salt, cinnamon, baking powder and vanilla powder.
Add the wet ingredients (milk, orange juice, vinegar, egg, applesauce and oil). Mix well.
Fill prepared doughnut pan and bake 10-15 minutes.
Once the doughnuts are done, allow them to cool for a few minutes. While the doughnuts are cooling, prepare the topping. In a small dish add the melted butter. In another dish mix the cinnamon and sugar. Dip the top of each doughnut in the melted butter followed by the cinnamon sugar. Eat right away or when the have cooled!
