Hemingway Daiquiri


· 2 cups flour

· 1 teaspoon baking soda

· 1 teaspoon baking powder

· 2 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

· ½ teaspoon ground clove

· ¼ teaspoon nutmeg

· ¼ teaspoon salt

· 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter, plus 4-6 more for topping

· ¾ cup apple cider concentrate

· 1 egg, room temperature

· ½ cup dark brown sugar

· ½ cup milk, room temperature

· 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

. 1 cup granulated sugar


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons of melted butter, egg, dark brown sugar, milk, vanilla extract, and apple cider concentrate.

4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

5. Set aside at room temperature and let sit 5-10 minutes.

6. Spray donut tin with cooking spray.

7. Fold a sturdy plastic freezer bag (gallon or quart-sized) over a measuring cup or another container with a wide opening. Spoon the batter in. Zip up the bag, pressing extra air out as you go. Cut the tip off of one corner, leaving an opening no bigger than a dime.

8. Pipe donut batter into donut tin, filling each donut cavity up halfway.

9. Bake for 10 minutes. The donuts are done when you press on them lightly and they spring back.

10. As the donuts bake, prepare the topping by whisking granulated sugar with the rest of the cinnamon in a shallow bowl.

11. Melt the rest of the butter.

12. When donuts are done and cool enough to handle, brush them with butter and then dip them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture, making sure to coat both sides.

13. Serve and eat right away.
