These Cinnamon Apple Baked Donuts not only look cute for fall, but they’re bursting with all the season’s goodness. Apple Baked Donuts are full of cinnamon apple flavor and a tenderness that melts in your mouth.

I love using Honeycrisp Apples for recipes, as it imparts a big and bright apple flavor without turning to mush. If you can use Honeycrisps, I highly recommend it. Otherwise, Granny Smith works well too.
Do not dip donuts in butter/roll in cinnamon sugar until ready to serve, as the fresh coating helps provide a slightly crisp outer texture when eaten right away (though leftovers are still yummy.)
Batter is deliberately not too sweet, since cinnamon sugar coating provides a lot of the sweetness. If you want a sweeter batter, add a bit more sugar into dry ingredients.
If using regular-sized donut pans, bake time will still be roughly the same (7-8 min) as you will only fill each mold partway up, rather than all the way to the top.
