Baked Caramel Apple Doughnuts

It is my beautiful sister Pam’s birthday on Saturday! I can’t be with her in person,  so I made her these little beauties!

Caramel Apple Doughnuts!

I remembered that she used to really like these Halloween candy suckers, caramel apple flavour.
So when I saw this recipe I thought these would be perfect for her!

They are moist and delicious, and the caramel topping, good lord, so so good!

What you need,

1¼ cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
2 eggs
½ cups packed brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 medium apples, peeled and grated
1 ½ cups chew caramel candies
1 tsp whole milk

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your doughnut pans with cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, brown sugar and granulated sugar until smooth.

Whisk in the vanilla and oil. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined. Stir in the grated apple.

Spoon the mixture into the doughnut pans. Bake until golden and a toothpick comes out clean. Anywhere from 15-20 minutes, mine took about 16.

I got 9 full sized doughnuts.

When the doughnuts are done put them on a rack to cool completely.
After they are cool it is time for the topping.

In a microwavable bowl, combine the caramels and milk. Microwave for 1 minute on medium power. Stir, continue in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy, it probably took 3 minutes or so.

Dip the lovely doughnuts right in the caramel topping and put them back on the rack to let it set up.

Stuff your face!

Happy Birthday sweet sister! I so wish I could be there with you. I promise to eat 1 or 3 of these on your behalf!!

Have a great day!


Miss you lots, but I will see you soon!! I can’t wait.
