    Title: Apple Cider Doughnuts
    Categories: Breads, Fruits, Snacks
    Yield: 12 servings

    2 c Apple cider
    3 c A-P flour
    1/2 c Whole wheat flour
    2/3 c Packed brown sugar
    2 ts Baking powder
    3/4 ts Salt
    1/2 ts Baking soda
    1/4 ts (ea) ground cardamom, nutmeg
    - cinnamon & allspice
    2 lg Eggs; room temp
    6 tb Butter; melted, cooled
    Oil for deep-fat frying
    Chocolate Glaze or Maple
    - Glaze for Doughnuts; opt

    In a small saucepan, bring cider to a rapid boil; cook
    over high heat until reduced by half, about 12 minutes.
    Cool completely.

    Whisk together flours, brown sugar, baking powder, salt,
    baking soda and spices. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs,
    melted butter and cooled cider; stir into dry
    ingredients just until moistened (dough will be sticky).
    Refrigerate, covered, until firm enough to shape, about
    1 hour.

    Divide dough in half. On a floured surface, pat each
    portion to 1/2" thickness; cut with a floured 3"
    doughnut cutter.

    In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to
    325ºF/165ºC Fry doughnuts, a few at a time, until golden
    brown, 2-3 minutes on each side. Fry doughnut holes, a
    few at time, until golden brown and cooked through,
    about 1 minute on each side. Drain on paper towels; cool
    slightly. If desired, dip doughnuts into glaze or sugar
    of your choice.
