“My mom made these when I was a little girl. We would love to help her and of course eat them afterward. Dust with powdered sugar, granulated sugar or cinnamon. Delicious!”

Directions

  1. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, beat together white sugar, butter, eggs and applesauce. In a separate bowl, stir together flour baking powder, salt, baking soda, mace and cinnamon. Stir flour mixture into the egg mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Mix until a stiff dough is formed.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 3/4 to 1 inch thick sheet. Make sure to roll the dough to an even thickness. Cut out doughnuts with a doughnut cutter.
  4. Carefully slide doughnuts into hot oil. Turn doughnuts as soon as they rise to the surface. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels and dust with confectioners' sugar. Serve hot.

this recipe is tasty, but the person who reviewed it and changed not only the ingredients but cooking method shouldn't comment on this recipe, it's not going to turn out correctly if you don't follow the recipe!!!

Yummy! My kids beg me to make these. The only thing I do different is I use a small scoop to make donut holes only. It's quick and easy with less mess. I have used flavored applesauce too. Raspberry and cinnamon are great. We've also dipped them in glaze. Thank your mom for the great recipe. I can guarantee this will be passed down in our family.

Very tasty. I used allspice instead of clove, since that's what I had on hand. By the way, I agree with the poster who said it's unfair to dramatically change the recipe and then give a poor/mediocre rating. The raw apple that poster added would completely change the texture of this recipe and would also change cooking time.
