Whole Wheat Apple Doughnuts


  • 2 cup(s) of apple cider or apple juice (unsweetened) 
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour 
  • 1.5 cup(s) of all-purpose flour 
  • 2.5 cup(s) brown sugar 
  • ½  tsp baking powder 
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 3-4 tsp salt 
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom 
  • 2 large egg(s)
  • 6 tbsp melted butter 
  • Oil for frying 
  • Sugar for glazing or any toppings of choice (optional)


  • In a small saucepan, heat the apple juice or vinegar to boil on a high flame till it is reduced to half, for approximately 10-12 minutes. 
  • Add dry ingredients to a bowl and mix properly. 
  • In a different bowl, whisk the eggs, butter and cooled cider/juice mixture and combine with dry ingredients, till the dough is sticky in nature. Refrigerate for 1 hour. 
  • Divide the dough into 2 pieces, and flatten the dough to reduce its thickness to approximately half an inch. Cut the dough in with a doughnut cutter or a bowl to form the shape of a dough for frying. Make a hole in the centre. 
  • In a deep fryer, heat the oil to 160°C. Fry the doughnuts on each side until golden in colour. Make sure no portion of the doughnut is left uncooked, especially the centre. 
  • Drain the oil on a tissue paper, and glaze with sugar or add your favourite toppings and serve!
