Enjoy these warm home-made apple cider doughnuts coated in cinnamon sugar.
- Add the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a paper bag and shake to blend together.
- Place a large skillet over high heat and boil cider for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until reduced to 1 cup. Allow to cool.
- In a bowl, mix together eggs, butter, and reduced cider.
- Use an electric mixer to beat the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and pie spice for about 30 seconds or until smooth. Mix in cider mixture until the mixture is moistened. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
- In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat to 365 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with paper towels. Separate the dough in half and place one half at a time on a floured work surface and roll each to 1/2" thick. Then cut into circles with a floured 3" doughnut cutter. Use the scrapes to roll into smaller dough rounds (for doughnut holes).
- In batches, Fry doughnuts and holes for roughly 45 seconds to 1 minute per side, or until golden brown. Place on the prepared baking sheet for 30 seconds to drain. Lightly toss warm doughnuts in cinnamon sugar.
- Serve warm or at room temperature.
