Caramel Apple Cake Mix Donuts

I am addicted to cake mixes (and pudding, but that's another post)...  I can't seem to go to the grocery store without one ending up in my cart.   I love the seasonal flavors, and last week's find was Caramel Apple Cake mix.   I had originally planned on mini cupcakes with them, but then I ran across this recipe for donuts.

I considered replacing half the water called for in the cake mix with cider, and didn't.   Next time I might.  I didn't find the plain donuts overly flavorful.  She also says to bake them to golden brown, and the one pan I cooked that way would have been inedible.  Mine are pale, but taste good.   I nixed the store bought frosting/crushed candy for a homemade apple cider glaze.  

They don't really remind me of baked donuts, but they are fast, fun and a nice treat.  You definitely could make them as cupcakes or mini muffins instead.

                        Caramel Apple Baked Donuts



  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
                        Pillsbury® Caramel Apple Cake Mix
  1                     Egg
     1/4           Cup  Vegetable Oil
  1                Cup  Water
 1T melted butter
1T apple cider
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350.

Beat the cake mix, egg, oil and water together until smooth. Spray donut pans with cooking spray.  Place batter in a piping bag and pipe into pans.

Bake for  6 to 7 minutes for mini donuts, 10-12 minutes for large.  Let donuts cool completely and then remove from pan.

Combine melted butter, apple cider and powdered sugar.    Dip the top of the donuts into the glaze, then set on a cooling rack above a baking sheet to set.   (I line my baking sheet with foil for easier clean up)
