Apple Cider Spice Donuts


Nothing is better than reading the newspaper,
early on a Saturday morning,
while eating a warm homemade doughnut,
dunked into a cup of hot coffee.
Delicious!

  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs

  2. Combine flours, baking powder and baking soda. Add to batter, beat just until blended. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour. Divide dough in half.
