– 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour – 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon – 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg – 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted – 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed – 1/4 cup granulated sugar – 2 large egg – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce – 1/2 cup apple cider – For coating: 1/2 cup granulated sugar + 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon



Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a donut pan with cooking spray or a light coating of oil.


Step 1

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the gluten-free all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg. Set aside.


Step 2

In a separate large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, applesauce, and apple cider until well combined.


Step 3

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay. The batter should be thick and well incorporated.


Step 4

Spoon the batter into the prepared donut pan, filling each mold about 2/3 full. Smooth the tops with a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a donut comes out clean.
