Baked Caramel Apple Donuts



So, All week I have been talking about healthy eating and vegetables. When thanks to one of my favorite blogger Shutterbean that is totally out of the window.

I LOVE donuts. Thankfully I can only eat them when their ultra fresh and there are no good donuts shops in my neighborhood.

Now you can make our own baked donuts without having to find a Krispy Kream. Why have I not had one of these my whole life. Oh well, no better time than now. I love fast shipping, it will be here on Monday!!!
In the mean time I will have to droll over Tracys until I am able to make my own.

Baked Caramel Apple Donuts

makes about 12 regular sized donuts & 24 small ones
(recipe adapted from Rachael Ray Magazine)
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 medium apples, peeled & shredded
  • 1 1/2 cup chewy caramel candies
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk (I'd try 2 to make make the caramel thinner)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray donut pans with cooking spray & set aside. Whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, bro
wn sugar and granulated sugar until smooth. Whisk in oil and vanilla. Stir into the flour mixture until just combined; stir in the apples. Spoon the batter into the prepared donut pans until almost full. Baked until golden and a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out dry. It takes about 15-20 minutes. (Mind ended up taking 18)
In a small, microwaveable bowl, combine the caramel and milk. Microwave for 1 minute at medium power. then stir; repeat in 30 second intervals until melted and smooth. If making small donuts, dip them directly into the caramel. For
larger donuts, spoon caramel topping on top!
