For the Donuts:

  • 1 c flour
  • 1 egg
  • ½ c milk
  • 2 T butter melted
  • c Greek Yogurt
  • ½ c sugar
  • 1 apple, med-small I prefer gala or fuji
  • 2-3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Glaze:

  • 2 c powdered sugar
  • 3-4 T apple cider
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • dash of cinnamon (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Peel and dice the apple.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, egg, sugar, vanilla, butter and yogurt.
  • In a separate bowl, combine baking powder, flour, sea salt, baking soda and cinnamon.
  • Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients and then fold in apples.
  • Spoon or pipe batter into a greased donut pan and bake for about 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool completely and then whisk together glaze ingredients. Spread the glaze over top of the donuts. For best results, store in the refrigerator for 4-5 days in an airtight container.


  • If you don't have any apple cider, simply use milk or cream for the liquid in the glaze.
  • For a really nice glaze to set, you want the donuts COMPLETELY cooled before you ice them. If not, the glaze will melt into the donuts. This is not always a bad thing though!
  • I use plain Greek yogurt in my apple donuts. You could use a vanilla Greek yogurt as well and have great results.
  • Make sure to spray the top of your donut pan as well. That way it is easy to get the donuts out in case they bake over at all.
