Today we went on the search for a simple doughnut recipe we could make with the children.
And we discovered so many yummy ways to make doughnuts at home that we decided to put together a collection (or three)!
Since we’re heading into Fall let’s kick off with an easy apple donut recipe… well we couldn’t narrow it down to just one so we have eight to share with you!
How to Make Donuts at Home
Making donuts at home is really easy, and a lot healthier than buying fried doughnuts from a Food Truck that’s for sure! You will need some supplies though.
- A Donut Pan – the easiest way to bake donuts is to use a doughnut pan, you can buy one with 6 holes for larger donuts, or 12 holes if you want to make mini donuts. Wilton does a heart shaped pan too!
- A Donut Cutter – if you want the option of frying your donuts then a donut cutter like this one will give you the perfect donut shape.
- A Donut Maker Machine – If you’re going to make doughnuts regularly, or you just don’t want to have to heat the oven for a small batch then try a machine like this one.
- An Apple Corer – If you want to make apple slice donuts, or apple fitters then you will need an apple corer.
