Homemade Applesauce Donuts

Stack ‘em up

Donuts. Is there anything they can’t do?
A wise man,by the name of Homer Simpson,once voiced this feeling that I will bet we all have. I have to be honest about something-Rachel and I have been known to polish off a whole box by ourselves, all the while, arguing the side of  powdered over plain or if old fashioned trumps them all. I made this recipe for theses delicious donuts one Saturday morning. I was actually shocked at how easy it was. In the end, Jake and I had eaten at least a dozen of these (not to mention the donut holes). Brew that coffee because it has a new friend coming for breakfast. Or a late brunch or a snack after lunch,etc,etc.

Here’s What You Will Need:

2 Cups Flour

1/2 Cup Sugar

1 Tsp. Salt

1 Tbsp. Baking Powder

1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon

1/4 Tsp. Nutmeg

2 Tbsp. Melted Butter

1/4 Cup Buttermilk

1/4 Cup Applesauce

1 Egg Beaten

1 Quart Vegetable Oil For Frying

Sift the dry ingredients.

Add butter until it crumbles and then buttermilk and applesauce until dough is smooth but not too sticky.

Doughn’t you know

Knead lightly then place on a floured surface.

Ready to roll

Roll dough out to 1/ inch thick.


Use a donut cutter or 2 different sized biscuit cutters to cut out your donuts.

Making the cut

In an area nearest the stove- I set up cookie cooling racks over a cookie sheet to let the donuts cool and it also catches any oil.

Heat up the oil on medium-high. Drop in the dough and fry until golden brown on each side or around 3 minutes total.

The apple of my fry

Outta the frying pan…

About The Chic

Back in 2004 when I was looking to name my events company, I stumbled across the word 'Chic' in an old dictionary. The definition was: “a fashionable lifestyle, ideology, or pursuit”. I fell in love with the word and the idea that chic is the pursuit of something better, prettier, or cooler than you are today. Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel

Question: From RJ in Los Angeles Hi Rachel! We had a gathering last night where quite a few kids (mostly toddlers) showed up with their parents.
