Apple Cider Donuts
There is a hint of fall in the air most mornings now. And it's dark when Paul heads out for his early morning bicycle ride. Like, really dark! I love this weather for sleeping and am a huge fan of cool nights and blue skied days. Guess that means it's (almost) time for school....and apple recipes and pumpkin recipes and maple syrup recipes.
And thinking about maple syrup....ummm...who thinks that sugared pancake syrup-y stuff is a good idea? As my dad says, "maple syrup is one of the true pleasures in life". It's true...and there is no substitute. I was noting the ingredient list on a bottle of the imitation version and wondering who thinks it's a good idea to eat that stuff. And, don't even get me started on the low/non sugar version of the stuff. Ugh!
Eleanor's been on a waffle kick since we got the new waffle iron. She's doing high school swim team doubles each day too, so that makes for a hungry highschooler. For a bit of variety I made these for her the other morning having gotten the recipe from Eating Well , one of the first cooking magazines I ever purchased. Somehow that subscription got slashed from my budget years and years ago; however, I may have to reconsider after browsing their website.
It will come as no surprise to anyone who has read through my recipes will know, that I made a few adaptations; my version is below.
