My goodness we have really been giving our little donut maker a workout lately.

We did the Chocolate Chip Donuts and Pumpkin Spice Donuts, as well as a few gluten free recipes. This time around we went with Apple Pie Donuts. My secret was that I overfilled the pan just a touch so that there wasn’t a hole in the center of each donut, then I placed a dollop of apple pie filling inside of that. So cute and so yummy!

Easy Apple Pie Donuts Recipe


  • 1½ cups plain flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon mixed spice
  • 9 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ½ cup canned pie apple, mashed
  • ½ cup canned milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


Powdered sugar glaze (Use about 1 to 2 cups of powdered sugar and a few teaspoons of milk to thin it)


1. Preheat Donut machine. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in the center. Whisk in the butter, apple, milk, and egg until mixture forms a smooth batter.

2. Spray machine with cooking oil. Fill bases of preheated donut rings with half of the batter. Close lid and cook for 6 minutes or until donuts are golden and cooked. Use a non-stick spatula to transfer donuts to a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining batter to make 10 donuts in total. Garnish with extra apple pie filling and a simple powdered sugar glaze.
