What we made on Monday...

We went our annual apple picking trip this weekend.  We have lots of apples and it is time to pull out all the yummy fall recipes.  One of our favorites is apple donuts.  It is a  recipe passed down from my Mom.

Apple Donuts (apple muffins)
Mix together:
3 cups of flour
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg
3 1/2 tsp.baking powder
2/3 c. shortning
then add:
2 c. grated raw apple
2 eggs (beaten)
1/2 c. milk
1/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. butter

Mix all ingredients except topping ingredients.  Fill a greased muffin pan 2/3 full. I use a mini muffin tin. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Mix sugar and cinnamon together.  Melt  butter.  Remove donuts from pan and roll the tops  in the butter, then in the sugar/cinnamon mixture.  Enjoy!
