Doesn't that just sound like Autumn weather food? Applesauce from fresh picked apples, 'cause you know you went to the orchard and got way too many just to eat, and doughnuts are a great treat at any time. But if you can do the doughnuts with some FRUIT IN THEM, then they are good for you!! Yep, that means it's time to make up some doughnuts!
I remember making applesauce doughnuts before, but I could not find my recipe anywhere. (I know I made them a year or two ago for after reverse trick-or-treating...but that's a whole different story- watch for a reverse-trick -or-treating post later in the month.)
I looked in my recipe box(es) and in the recipe basket(s). And I just realized that I may have a disease - RECIPE-ITIS!!! Recipe-itis sounds really badddd! AAAArrrggg, help me!!!, please!! I have recipes (that I have tried) in at least FOUR different places. And I didn't even start looking in any of the recipe books. Maybe someday I'll show you pictures of all my recipe holder places. That could be the start of a healing process......curing recipitis.
But back to applesauce doughnuts............
