Apple, Cinnamon, Pecan, and Yogurt Donuts!

WOW a donut packed with FLAVOR ! Moist LIGHT & wonderful warm or room temp! You will want to make these TRUST ME !

2 & 1/2 Cup Flour
1/3 Cup Sugar
3/4 TSP Baking Soda stirred into 1/2 Cup Buttermilk
1/4 TSP Salt
Dash of Nutmeg
1 TSP Cinnamon
1 Beaten Egg
4 TBS Melted Butter
1 Cup Plain Yogurt
1 Cup Chunky Applesauce

Stir all the dry ingredients together. Stir in the wet  & stir until combined. Spray a 6 well donut pan OR a 6 well cupcake pan. Mix up the following crumb topping & place it evenly divided between the 6 wells. Spoon in your dough & bake in a 325 degree oven, about 20 to 25 minutes until donuts spring back to the touch & test with a toothpick inserted if it comes out clean your donuts are done ! Top with the following glaze & serve warm or at room temp ! WOW!!!

Crumb Topping
1 Cup Flour
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
Dash of Salt
1 TSP Cinnamon
1 Heaping TBS of Shortening
2/3 Cup Pecans Stirred after you get crumbs made.
Mix until you get fine crumbs, I just used a fork.  Once you have crumbs stir in nuts ( I used pecans but you could use walnut pieces or even oatmeal ) Now divide this mixture into the sprayed pans & spoon dough over the crumbs. bake as directed. Once baked let cool in pans 3 minutes & then dump out of pans, if any topping does not come out of your pan just spoon out of pan & spread over the top of the donuts. My first batch did not come freely out of the pan & I had to do this. as you can see it did not hurt the presentation of the donuts one bit ! STUFF HAPPENS when you bake just be creative & all is well ! Now once donuts are dumped make the following glaze & drizzle in large dollops over each donut. Serve !

2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 TSP Vanilla
Dash of Salt
1 TBS Melted Butter
2 Heaping TBS of Yogurt
Stir together until you have a nice thick glaze. use more or less of the sugar & yogurt until you get the thickness of glaze you like. Drizzle in dollops over each donut. DIG IN !
