It’s Fall Ya’ll! And that means it’s time for baked donuts in the Crowe house.

Fresh, warm, baked donuts give me all the fall feels. Pair them with hot apple cider or tea and I’m in heaven.

These donuts are super easy to make! You can have fresh donuts ready in about 25 minutes! You’ll need a few ingredients and also a donut pan. You can get it through Amazon or I’ve seen them at most Michael’s in the baking section and you can use that 40% coupon like I did!

These donuts are vegan and gluten free! If you aren’t though, feel free to replace the GF flour with AP flour. The donuts will still turn out just as good!

Important tip! Make sure you grease the pan well so those beautiful donuts will come out of their pan and into your mouth! No one wants a crumbled donut.

I use apple pie spice in these babies. But if you don’t have it, don’t worry! You can easily make your own.

Apple Pie Spice:

  • 1 1/2 TBSP ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground allspice

Add it all together and store it in a small container. Yum! This recipe will give you about 3 tablespoons of apple pie spice. The perfect amount for you fall baking needs!

Now let’s get on to our apple spice donut recipe!

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  4. Add mixture into a zliplock bag and cut the tip off of one of the corners of the bag to create your own piping bag. Fill the greased donut pan with the batter. Should give you 6 evenly filled donuts.

  5. Cook at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until they are set and golden brown. Let cool slightly.

  6. Melt 1 TBSP of butter in a small dish. On a small plate combine 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 TBSP of ground cinnamon and mix together. Brush a donut with melted butter and place in cinnamon sugar mixture to coat. You can do it on both sides or just one. Continue the the remaining donuts and enjoy!
