Baked Apple Donuts with Caramel Glaze

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #AppleWeek . I received complimentary product from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my #AppleWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Welcome to Apple Week 2019! This is my fourth year participating in this event, and it's one of my absolute favorites.  I'm kicking it off with these Baked Apple Donuts with Caramel Glaze! I love making baked donuts because it's so much easier than the fried kind.

I wanted to distribute the apple flavor through the donut, so rather than dicing it up I peeled it and then used a box grater.   Once your batter comes together you can either try to spoon it into the wells of the donut pan or use a ziptop or pastry bag to squeeze it in. 

Donut pans are more widely available now, I included links to my favorites down in the recipe card. I personally make 6 full size donuts and then do the rest as minis.  We enjoy the large ones for breakfast or dessert and the smaller ones get bagged up and go into lunch boxes.

To finish them off, I dipped them into the new Torani Puremade Caramel Sauce.  This added a wonderful flavor, and also allowed for the addition of some festive fall colored sprinkles.

Thanks so much to Cam from Culinary Adventures of Camilla for hosting #AppleWeek and to all the other awesome bloggers for sharing their recipes.

authorHello, my name is Cherine, but you can call me "Chicho" :) I am Lebanese and I live in Paris. Welcome to my internet kitchen, grab a cup of coffee, a macaron and get comfy! This blog is my recipe journal. It's where I write about the recipes that intersect my everyday life. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, my magazines, my favorite blogs... sometimes not, they might come from my mother, a friend, a neighbour... or I might write about a recipe I invented myself.
