Apple Cider Donuts...AKA Apple Cider Flip Flops
I love nothing more than to make my family happy. On a recent trip to a pumpkin farm, happiness came in the form of apple cider donuts. I decided to do some research and found a recipe from Home Made Simple for this scrumptious treat. As I have stated before, I am not much of a baker, and this recipe proved the point even further. From a taste perspective, they were pretty awesome. They were gone in seconds flat, so taste was not the problem. It had to be the batter. Your supposed to be able to shape into donuts, but the batter was too watery. Instead, I tried a different tactic - just dropping batter balls the heat oil and flip-flopping it back and forth until fully cooked. This gave the 'donuts' more of a fritter look. My husband and son LOVED them. My husband said it was a cross between a donut, French Toast and pancakes. In any case, try your luck with the recipe and enjoy the taste of Fall and the sugar high.
The recipe is pretty long and complex, so visit this link for the Apple Cider Donut recipe.
