Before we tried it, we thought making our own apple-cider doughnuts sounded complicated and not worth the effort when the farmers' market sells such good ones. After one go, though, we are hooked, thanks to Wilton's doughnut pan
and Stonewall Kitchen's mix
. The process is supereasy (just add a few pantry ingredients) and mess-free (the doughnuts are baked, not fried)—and the results are outrageously tasty.
