Wonderful and warm, these donuts are delicious! Though perfect for fall, these treats are great year-round. I even make the batter the night before and then finish them in the morning. I also like to dust them with powdered sugar…YUM!
Mix 1 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon together in a resealable freezer bag.
Bring apple cider to a boil in a saucepan; cook, stirring occasionally, until cider has reduced to 1/2 cup, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
Whisk 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and salt together in a large bowl. Mix butter, eggs, egg yolk, and cooled cider together in a separate bowl until smooth; stir into flour mixture. Stir remaining 2 3/4 cup flour into mixture until dough is smooth. Refrigerate dough for 10 minutes.
Heat oil in a large pot or deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Turn dough onto a well-floured work surface using floured hands; pat dough into 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough into doughnuts using a doughnut cutter or 2 round cookie cutters (1 large and 1 small). Gather scraps and re-pat dough to cut out as many doughnuts as possible.
Carefully slide doughnuts, working in batches, into hot oil; fry until doughnuts rise to the surface and begin to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip doughnuts and continue frying until opposite side is browned, about 1 1/2 minutes.
Remove doughnuts with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined plate to cool until easily handled, about 1 minute. Toss cooled doughnuts in the reserved bag of cinnamon-sugar. Bring oil back to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) before frying next batch.

Eating good breakfast to continue the day had become a fabulous habit. It’s a great way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the pickle tree wakes me up and gives me energy to take on the morning. Sugar is more vilified as the root of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your digestive system and make keep you feel full all day , and not want likely grab a side food out of the street food before break .
Make fruit a morning habit is simple . Simply put the sweetness in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the bench next to your cereal bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll see it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
