For the donuts:

  • 2 cups apple cider 
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Villa Vainilla extract

For the vanilla glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk or water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Villa Vainilla extract


  1. Reduce the apple cider:

    • In a small saucepan, simmer the apple cider over medium heat until it reduces to about 1/2 cup. This should take approximately 15-20 minutes. Let it cool.
  2. Preheat the oven and prepare the donut pans:

    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease two standard donut pans.
  3. Make the donut batter:

    • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
    • In a separate large bowl, mix together the reduced apple cider, granulated sugar, melted butter, eggs, and Villa Vainilla extract until well combined.
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix.
  4. Fill the donut pans:

    • Spoon the batter into a piping bag or a large resealable plastic bag. Cut off the corner of the bag and pipe the batter evenly into the prepared donut pans, filling each cavity about 2/3 full.
  5. Bake the donuts:

    • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the donuts are lightly golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    • Remove from the oven and let the donuts cool in the pans for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Make the vanilla glaze:

    • In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk or water, and vanilla extract until smooth. Adjust the consistency by adding more milk or water if needed.
  7. Glaze the donuts:

    • Dip the tops of the cooled donuts into the vanilla glaze, letting any excess glaze drip off.
    • Place the glazed donuts back on the wire rack, and allow the glaze to set for a few minutes.
  8. Serve and enjoy:

    • Once the glaze has set, serve the spiced apple cider donuts with vanilla and enjoy!

These spiced apple cider donuts with vanilla glaze are perfect for enjoying as a tasty fall treat or anytime you're craving a delicious homemade donut.
