The perfect Fall sweet - apple cider donuts! These are so easy to make and a great recipe for the kids to help out. I love apple cider donuts at the pumpkin patch so I quickly whipped up a batch at home and saved money!

In my opinion, these tasted a lot less sweet than the typical donut. I am not a fan of overly sweet desserts so if you are like me, this is the perfect recipe for you and your family.

You will need a donut pan for this recipe!
