These are so tasty that you might want to double the recipe. Best of all, they only take about 10 minutes to bake. They are delicious plain, or you can lightly frost them or add some drizzle.

I add the toppings 10 minutes after the donuts come out of the oven and are removed from the pan.

  • 1/4 cup Pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 tsp Vanilla extract

  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • Optional maple butter for drizzle or any frosting flavor you like

  • Add flour mixture to apple juice mixture and stir to combine.
  • Spoon into prepared donut pan filling just 3/4 full.
