Baked Apple Donuts

A change my family is making towards better eating is to use fresh ground wheat.  This is a new experience for us, but there are many recipes out there to help along! Here is one I found from Graham Family Ministries. 


3 cups flour (I use hard white wheat freshly ground)
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ cup olive oil
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
2 cups cored and finely diced apples

½ cup butter, melted
1 ½ cups sugar
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 12-cup muffin tins   In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Set aside.

In a small bowl combine oil, eggs, milk, and apples. Add to flour mixture and mix just until everything is moistened and mixed up.
Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling about 3/4ths full.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.

While muffins are baking, prepare topping. Melt butter. Then combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. When muffins are done baking, dip in melted butter, then in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place on a serving tray to serve. Yummy!
Yield: 24 muffins
