As of lately I have been browsing lots of foodie websites. Browsing, drooling, looking for new and interesting recipes to try out. I really want to show my family that delicious food doesn’t come out of a wrapper or box. So when I saw this recipe for Baked Apple Cider Donut Holes I immediately bookmarked it and saved it for a special day. Since Juan had today off I figured today would be perfect.
I didn’t have a mini muffin pan to make the ‘donut holes’ so I used a regular sized muffin pan and made muffins instead. I used Vanilla Silk Live Soy Yogurt in place of the plain Greek yogurt and Ener-G egg replacer in place of the egg. I topped 6 muffins off with chopped walnuts and baked them for about 20 minutes at 375º. Once they were done baking and completely cooled, I brushed the tops of the muffins without walnuts with melted butter and sprinkled some cinnamon and sugar on top. They were so good! Nice and moist. The only thing I would do different next time is add less nutmeg. I think I’ll just use a dash next time around. I like the taste of nutmeg, but it was a little too overpowering for me. I was expecting more apple taste than anything. Of course this recipe wasn’t meant to be made into muffins. Other than that the recipe was wonderful. Even Ethan said “Mommy, I love you recipe.”
