Homemade apple donuts
Why not make your own donuts at home? It's simple and so delicious! My kids love my homemade apple donuts.
- 3.5 ounces (100 g) butter
- 2 cups (5 dl) wheat flour
- 4 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla sugar
- 5 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/4 cups (3 dl) milk
- 3 eggs
- 2 diced apples (you don't need to peel them)
- cinnamon or cardamom
Why not try to get ahold of a donut maker next time you go shopping? Donuts are such a great weekend snack when there is enough time to make something extra nice. In most recipes, the yokes and the egg whites are whisked separately. I don't think it matters that much though, and often whisk my eggs whole.
It can be a bit difficult to get perfect donuts the first few times you try it, so try to manage your expectations and do a test round before serving your donuts.
Whisk the eggs until fluffy.
Add sugar and melted butter to your eggs and stir.
Mix wheat flour, vanilla sugar and baking powder and pour the mix and the other ingredients into the batter.
Heat the donut skillet and grease it with butter.
Add a little batter in each section and fry for a little while.
Turn the donut with the help of two spoons or a long fork.
Fry on the other side for a little while.
Put the cooked donuts on a plate with cinnamon/cardamon and sugar and roll them in the mix.
Serve your apple donuts with apple or vanilla sauce that you can dip them in. Enjoy!
