  • Cinnamon– This will add an additional flavor.
  • Sugar– Every great dessert-style recipe uses sugar.
  • Apple Cider– This will add the main flavoring of the holes.
  • Milk– You can use whole or 2% milk.
  • Eggs– Use these at room temperature.
  • Vanilla– Use pure extract for the best flavoring.
  • Butter– Use unsalted butter to control the amount of salt in the recipe.

Can Apple Cider Donut Holes Be Frozen?

Storing in the freezer will improve its shelf life up to 3 months, but you can also make a bunch and be set to have tasty doughnut holes for a while. For the best storage method, you will want to place them in an airtight container, like a freezer bag.

Can I Make Baked Apple Cinnamon Donuts in Advance?

Yes, you can make apple cinnamon donuts in advance if you would like. You can prepare all of your ingredients and batter and store them in the fridge in an airtight container. When you are ready to make the doughnuts, just pull the batter out of the fridge and you are ready to go. The baked donuts will last for about 3 days.
