After sifting through some traditional apple cider donut recipes, I came up with a good base to give that cake-like texture, found the typical spices, and discovered reducing the apple cider will help really get that apple cider flavor (go figure!). The apple cider also makes the bread moist without being too dense. Then that literal sugar on top – the cinnamon sugar coating really takes this bread to the next level.
Now that it’s finally getting chilly here in NC, this bread is definitely going to be made a bunch more. It really came out spot on. This would be perfect for football Sundays, Thanksgiving morning, or just any regular day. The other great thing is that it’s super easy to make, so you can get in and out of the kitchen and back to cuddling on the couch in your blankets!
