Happy National Donut Day! It’s my favorite holiday and I’ve got a super special recipe to share with you: Gluten-Free Apple Cider Donuts.
But wait…it’s not only National Donut Day, it’s also World Cider Day. So I’ve got a donut to celebrate both holidays. I’ve made these gorgeous baked donuts with hard cider, however you can make them with regular apple cider as well. Hard cider gives these a nice boozy kick and an even richer apple flavor than any apple cider donut I’ve ever had.
I used Angry Orchard’s Apple Ginger cider in testing this recipe. This is a staple in our fridge, however you can choose from the plethora of hard ciders now available. Just be certain it is a true hard cider, truly gluten-free and not one of the apple ales that are a malt beverage (not gluten-free) that seem to sneak onto the same shelf at the store.
Apple cider donuts not your thing? I’ve rounded up 52 of the best gluten-free donut recipes from trusted food writers and gathered them all into one spot, right here. Enjoy!
