Fall is in the air and apples are in season! My sweet friend Becky Wortman and I come up with a yummy fall cake doughnut recipe to share! These delicious apple cider cake doughnuts are moist with a nice tartness from the Granny Smith apples yet balanced by the sweetness from the cinnamon and sugar. Enjoy this tasty treat! Happy Fall!
Apple Cider Cake Doughnuts
Whisk together milk, sugar and vinegar. Once combined add eggs and whisk. In separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Slowly combine with your wet ingredients. Once all combined fold in your chopped apples.
Roll dough out and using a biscuit cutter cut out circles. Using a smaller biscuit cutter cut out center to create a ring. Save centers to fry up as doughnut holes!
Fry doughnuts in oil until golden brown. Move to a rack to drain excess oil and while hot still toss in a bowl of cinnamon and sugar.
Bonus: For added deliciousness try melting some Peter's Caramel and drizzling over the top of the doughnuts.
It's that time of year! Back to school time! I know many of the parents I've seen in the last two weeks have been cheering the start of the school year! Why not cheer your teachers on with this cute cupcake idea from our own Susan Carberry of The Cake Cottage!
Step 1: Ice up a batch of cupcakes and roll just the edge in fun sprinkles.
Step 2: Roll out some black Satin Ice fondant and use a square cutter to cut out mini chalkboards.
Step 3: Use some bright white gel coloring such as Americolor and using a small paint brush paint onto your mini chalkboards "Teacher"
There you have a super cute, sweet treat to pass on to your favorite teachers. I'm sure by the end of week one they all will need a sweet pick me up!
Fall is finally here! The days are getting shorter and Halloween is right around the corner. During a recent Epicurean Delights teaching trip I spent a few days at The Cake Cottage in Murietta, CA. Susan Carberry is the shops owner.
If you live in Southern, California you may be familiar with her shop, her classes and her delicious jumbo cupcakes.
Can I just talk about those cupcakes for a minute...20 flavors to pick from. They are moist and iced with a tasty American Buttercream and adorned with cute edible decorations. My favorite picks include; Pina Colada, Cinnamon Streusel, Caramel Apple and Smores.
I just love wandering around her shop looking at the custom molds, sprinkles, tools and the largest selection of cutters I've ever seen. I have many of her custom copper cutters and use to sell them in my retail shop in NH. I just love them.
I had an opportunity to catch up with Rose who keeps The Cake Cottage in tip top shape and is Susan's right hand gal! She shared this fun tasty recipe with me on how to make Fall Candy Corn Bark. It consists of three layers of colored candy melts (Merkens) and each layer is flavored a different flavor. Its fast, fun, colorful and tasty.
I'm pleased they are allowing me to sharing the recipe with you! I can also tell you that it's a tasty addition to the top of one of The Cake Cottage's Pina Colada cupcakes. Perfect for a Halloween party. Enjoy this Epicurean Delight, we give it a big thumbs up!
