This is my favorite time of year. The fall crisp air means, scarves, boots, and apple picking! I go apple picking every year and I always have to get an apple cider donut when I am at the orchard. You now can make them in the comfort of your own home with this donut recipe.

These donuts are baked instead of fried and use white whole-wheat flour to incorporate more whole grains. White whole-wheat flour – sounds like a contradiction, right?

What is white whole wheat flour?

“White wheat is a different type of wheat that has no major genes for bran color (unlike traditional “red” wheat which has one to three bran color genes). An easy way to think of it is as a sort of albino wheat. The bran of white wheat is not only lighter in color but it’s also milder in flavor, making whole white wheat more appealing to many people accustomed to the taste of refined flour.

If you don’t have a donut pan, you can always use a muffin tin. Cook time may vary. To check for doneness, insert a toothpick in the center and see if it comes out clean.
