Baked Apple Cider Donuts


Baked Apple Cider Donuts

It’s the right time of year to make the tastiest donuts you’ve ever had! Today we are getting baked, and baking homemade Baked Apple Cider Donuts.

These delicious donuts are cakey, dense and intensely flavoured with a nice dose of cannabutter.

Baked, not fried, these fall treats come together quickly and easily, which is exactly what you want in a weed edible, right?

The trick for BIG flavour here, is to use concentrate apple cider. Yum!


How Do I Make Cannabutter?

Another little secret for this recipe is using cannabutter. How else are we going to get high?!

Of course, you can always opt to use CBD butter, but I love our step-by-step cannabutter recipe and here it is below:

A recipe on how to make cannabis butter at home. After many cannabutter recipes, we find that this is by far the best way to infuse weed with butter.

  • 1/4 to 1/2 Ounce Cannabis 
  • 1 cup Butter


  • Decarboxylate your weed by spreading your cannabis evenly on an oven tray And coat with aluminum foil.
  • Place in the oven on 240F/115C for 25 till 45 minutes, and then let it cool.
  • Grind your dry cannabis or chop it till fine.
  • Place the cannabis in a strong mason jar, add butter and (1 tsp of sunflower lecithin)(optional)
  • Place your closed jar in cold water and let it come to a boil, Boil for 2 to 3 hours.
  • Strain your butter through a cheesecloth.
  • Cool down
  • Now you can use the Cannabis Butter (Cannabutter)



If using a mason jar, be sure to start with cold water. Furthermore, it is imperative to let the water cool gradually so that your glass will not shatter.

  • Sauce pan
  • Donut pan
  • Whisk
  • Mixing Bowls
  • measuring cups & spoons


  • 1 1/2 cups apple cider
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp cannabutter
  • 1 large egg room temp
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk room temp
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp apple pie spice
  • 6 tbsp cannabutter melted


  • Reduce the apple cider: Stirring occasionally, simmer the apple cider in a small saucepan over low heat until you’re left with about 1/2 cup. Start checking at 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes, etc until you have 1/2 cup (120ml). Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Spray donut pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  • Make the donuts: Whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, apple pie spice, and salt together in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Whisk the melted butter, egg, brown sugar, granulated sugar, milk, and vanilla extract together. Pour into the dry ingredients, add the reduced apple cider, and whisk everything together until smooth and combined. Batter will be slightly thick.
  • Spoon the batter into the donut cavities.
  • Bake for 10-11 minutes or until the edges and tops are lightly browned. To test, poke your finger into the top of the donut. If the donut bounces back, they’re done. Cool donuts for 2 minutes then transfer to a wire rack. Re-grease the pan and bake the remaining donut batter.

Sugar Topping Time!

  • Coat the donuts: Combine the granulated sugar, cinnamon, and apple pie spice together in a medium bowl. Once cool enough to handle, dunk both sides of each donut in the melted cannabis butter, then generously in the apple spice topping.
