Delicious Pecan Apple Cider Cake Donuts


Cooking Tools:

  • Non-stick donut pan
  • Sifter
  • Large and small mixing bowls
  • Measuring spoons

Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Prepare the donut batter

  • Mix the ingredients together. Mix 1 to 1-1/2 cups of Vicky Cakes Pecan Pancake & Waffle Mix, 1 egg, 3/4 cup of apple cider, 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla, a few dashes of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of hazelnut syrup, and a splash of water into a large box. Mix it together until it creates a thick consistency. Tip: if the batter is too thick, add a little water; if the batter is too thin, add more pancake mix.
  • Spray the donut pan with olive oil spray or nonstick spray. Fill each donut halfway. Tip: don’t overfill the pan or they will turn into muffins.
  • Add some caramel syrup to each donut and use a toothpick or fork to mix it in the batter.
  • Bake the donuts on the top rack for 12-14 minutes. Be sure to watch them closely to avoid burning or overcooking. Use a toothpick or fork to ensure they are done. Note: a clean toothpick or fork means it’s ready!
  • Let the donuts cool on a cooling rack.

Prepare the Icing

  • Add about 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, a dash of apple cider, 1 teaspoon (or a squeeze) of caramel syrup in a small bowl, then mix it together.
  • Dip one side of the donut into the icing and move around until the top is evenly coated. Set them aside to dry.
  • Drizzle caramel syrup over the donuts and lightly dust with powdered sugar using a sifter.

Enjoy your donuts!
