Baked Apple Cinnamon Doughnuts + Weekly Menu

They’re baaaaaaaack…baked doughnuts!

Mr. Prevention and I were heading home last night from a work dinner thing and he starts to pull into the Kroger parking lot.

  • Me: What are you getting? We just went shopping today.
  • Mr. P: NUTS!
  • Me: What?
  • Mr. P: DOUGH!
  • Me: WHAT?
  • Mr. P: Doughnuts. And OJ.
  • Me: I have everything to make a new doughnut recipe, can I make those instead?
  • Mr. P: Are you going to make orange juice, too?
  • Me: ::shoots him a dirty look::

And, these were delicious. I love the simple ingredients and short cook time.

The recipe makes quite a few, but beware! You can pile through these quicker than you’d imagine :)

I have lots on my to-do list today! Time to get to it! Oh, and my hockey team plays in the championship game tonight…I’m excited :-D

This week’s menu is a bit off because Mr. P has work events every night and I am heading to Chicago on Thursday afternoon. But, here it is!

Weekly Menu: April 17th – 20th

  • Sunday:Chicken Korma w/ naan from TJ’s
  • Monday: Portabello Mushroom Pizzas (roll-over from last week’s menu)
  • Tuesday: Potato Salmon Patties (rec from a friend!)
  • Wednesday: leftovers

Question: What’s your favorite breakfast “splurge”?

I love, love, love doughnuts…if you hadn’t caught on to that by now ;)

Be well,

  1. Will you ship the extra doughnuts to Iowa?! :)

    My favorite breakfast is pancakes….love.

  2. LOL @ “making OJ too” :) Cute! Those donuts look deeelish! Way better than store donuts. I have to get one of those pans so I can get my hubby off of Entennmann’s!

  3. Are you trying to make me gain weight? LOL.

    Those look fantabulous.

  4. Julie Johnson says:

    These look wonderful!! Can you make them as a muffin and how long would you bake them? I don’t have a doughnut pan. :(

    • Julie, yes! I’m sure. I would fill the muffin tins just about 1/2 way, no more than 2/3rd and I would bake them at 400 F for 15 minutes and stick a toothpick in at that point. You want the toothpick to come out clean and the muffin/doughnut to have some bounce back once you press into it with your finger. If you try that, let me know how it works! I’m not very confident in my baking skills, but so long as you keep an eye on them, I can’t foresee it being any type of disaster :)

  5. GIRL those doughnuts look amazing! Hope you are doing well!! <3

  6. They look great!
    I have a mini doughnut pan – how long would you cook them for?

    • Mine is a mini, too…I believe. It’s less than 4″ diameter, so I would go with the 8-9 minutes still..that worked perfectly for me!

  7. 79 calories? I think I need to make these. Do you think they would work as muffins though? I don’t have a donut pan.

    • I know, right? Someone else asked this same question and I came up with this: I would fill the muffin tins just about 1/2 way, no more than 2/3rd and I would bake them at 400 F for 15 minutes and stick a toothpick in at that point. You want the toothpick to come out clean and the muffin/doughnut to have some bounce back once you press into it with your finger. If you try that, let me know how it works! I’m not very confident in my baking skills, but so long as you keep an eye on them, I can’t foresee it being any type of disaster :)

  8. Those doughnuts look delicious! I better not even attempt these because I probably wouldn’t be able to stop!
    Love the meals that you have planned for the week! Can’t wait to hear about them.

  9. I’m thinking a mini doughnut pan should be my next “kitchenware purchase”. Great looking recipe Nicole. Thanks as always.

  10. Wow! Only 79 calories, these are delicious! I have to try these!

  11. Mmmm… I love cinnamon sugar coated doughnuts. Only 79 cals? How big are they?

  12. I just made these and they look and smelly YUMMY! I can’t wait to try them, the only question I had though is that I only had enough batter for 11 doughnuts, are doughnut pans different sizes?

    • Hm. They are different sizes, but I would’ve guess that big of a difference. Mine are about 3 1/2-inch diameter, if that helps. Hope you love them!

  13. these look fantastic! i was looking for a appley donut recipe to break in my new donut pan + i think these might be the winners – going to try ‘em this afternoon. i’ll report back on how they go! =)

    • update: they turned out delicious! i do have to agree with the previous commenter, though – i followed the recipe exactly but only had enough batter for 14 donuts. i’m planning to post ‘em on my blog this week if you want to see a pic of them. =)

      • I will definitely check them out on your blog! I think my donut pan may be on the smaller size. Glad you liked them, though!

  14. I noticed these do not call for salt or nutmeg? How much of each should I add?

    Thanks!

  15. love these. are they mini donuts? trying to adapt the recipe for my 6 hole donut pan

    • Nicole, RD says:

      Hi Lauri, my pan is a 6-hole, too. I would say the donuts are 3 inches in diameter…so on the smaller-ish side if you consider the size of store-bought donuts, but definitely not mini either. Hope that helps!

  16. 79 calories for a donut! I need to try these .. now just need to get a donut pan
