Food: Sunday Morning Apple Cider Doughnuts

I needed to make sweets for this morning’s breakfast for a houseful of guests who are getting ready to leave after a special occasion get-together on Saturday. This recipe for spiced apple cider doughnuts popped up and although I am watching what I eat, I figure indulging one day is not going to kill me or set me back –  unless I scuff down 8 of these beauties. 🙂 .  And yes, a dozen softly boiled eggs and non-GMO bacon is always available in case, I chicken out of having a doughnut. Oh who am I kidding. I am not chickening out of anything. Doughnut or bust I say.

  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter
