Apple Cider Donut Holes

This recipe is straight-forward and easy to make, and when they are done you will have tender, airy donuts. You first begin by reducing some apple cider in a saucepan. You then mix your dry ingredients, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves; add greek yogurt and brown sugar for extra moisture. For the coating, you can use cinnamon and sugar; giving every bite a little kick of spice. This dessert is ideal to make in your 5.8 QT Air Fryer ensuring your tasty dessert will be ready to eat in minutes.

Apple Cider Cupcakes & Brown Sugar Cinnamon Buttercream

If you want to impress your family and friends this season, consider making these delicious apple cider cupcakes. This is not your typical Thanksgiving dessert but will be a great addition! Keep in mind; this is not a fluffy and cake light cupcake; it has the consistency of a muffin. You will begin by mixing butter and sugar in a bowl, adding eggs and vanilla until it is fully mixed. Whisk together all your dry ingredients in a separate bowl, add the apple cider and the mixture of dry ingredients, alternating between the two, slowly incorporating them into the butter/sugar/egg mixture. Place it in your 12.7 QT Air Fryer Oven for 8 minutes, or until the toothpick comes out clean.
