Happy Tuesday. Last night, we made apple cider doughnut holes. They were very good. I rolled half in cinnamon sugar and half in a vanilla glaze with sprinkles for the kids. I would have liked to make a maple glaze for them but though the kids may not like it, so I stuck with the simple vanilla. The only thing is this recipe did not make 3 1/2 dozen. I got 2 1/2 dozen out of it. And the cinnamon sugar made WAY too much. You could easily cut that in half.

1¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ cup vegetable oil
½ cup apple cider
¾ cup sugar
1½ teaspoons cinnamon
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a mixing bowl. Add vegetable oil, egg and apple cider. Stir until well blended.
Fill each cooking reservoir with about 1 tablespoon of batter.
Bake 4 to 5 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into donut holes comes out clean.
For cinnamon-sugar topping, combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Immediately toss hot donut holes in the mixture.
