Donut Ingredients
1 1⁄2

cups all-purpose flour


cup light brown sugar


teaspoon baking soda


teaspoon baking powder


teaspoon salt




cup vegetable oil


cup apple cider


teaspoon vanilla extract

Cinnamon Sugar Coating Ingredients

1 1⁄2
granulated sugar
ground cinnamon
butter, melted
apple cider
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a standard sized donut pan and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine egg, LACTAID® 2% Reduced Fat Milk, vegetable oil, apple cider, and vanilla extract. Carefully pour the wet ingredients into the dry, mixing until just combined. Mixture will be slightly lumpy and thick.
  3. Spoon batter into a large plastic bag and cut a ½ inch hole in one corner, creating a makeshift piping bag. Pipe the dough into the donut molds, filling ¾ of the way to the top of the molds. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before coating with cinnamon sugar.
  4. To make the cinnamon sugar, combine both ingredients in a shallow bowl. In a separate bowl combine the melted butter and apple cider. Using a small brush, brush each donut with the melted butter and apple cider, then dip each side into the sugar mixture. Dip each donut in twice for an extra sugary coating.
