Last week, when I was getting a few groceries, I noticed some apple cider on sale. So, I picked up a jug, with the intention of making donuts. Fast forward through a week that was beyond hectic and I still hadn't made my donuts. So today, was baking day. It was rainy, windy and cold, so I figured baking all day way a sure fire way for all of us to stay toasty. 

I love making baked donuts. They are so much easier and less time consuming than fried donuts. Sure fried donuts taste sinful, but a good baked donut can be just as good, if not better. Case in point, these donuts. They are light, moist and airy soft. I decided to go with a pumpkin butter glaze, since I had a jar, from my last visit to Trader Joes, that hadn't expired. I tasted it and knew it would go perfectly with the donuts. The house smells heavenly and the donuts are fabulous.


Baked Apple Cider Donuts with Pumpkin Butter Glaze

    1 C flour
    1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/8 tsp nutmeg
    1/8 tsp allspice
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 C honey
    1/4 C apple cider
    1/4 C sour cream
    1 Tbsp canola oil
    1 tsp vanilla extract

GLAZE

    1 1/2 C powdered sugar
    1 1/2 Tbs pumpkin butter
    2 Tbs apple cider


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease a donut pan and set aside.

In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt. Measure the apple cider in a large measuring cup. Whisk in the honey, apple cider, sour cream, oil, and vanilla extract. Add wet ingredients to dry; mixing until just combined.

Spoon batter into a large zip top bag, snip the end and pipe batter into the prepared doughnut pan, filling each mold about 3/4 full. Bake for 8-10 minutes; until donuts spring back when gently pressed. Let donuts cool in pan for a few minutes before transferring onto a cooling rack. Cool completely.

Whisk together powdered sugar, pumpkin butter and apple cider in a small shallow bowl. Dip the tops of each cooled donut into the glaze. Place onto cooling rack once again, to let the glaze harden.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
