Overnight Baked Apple Spice Donuts
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon Apple Pie Spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
2/3 cup shredded peeled apple (I used 1 medium Fuji)
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Coat a donut pan with six indentations OR 9 muffin cups with non stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl stir together the flour, sugar, wheat flour, baking powder, apple pie spice, salt, and baking soda.
With a pastry blender cut in the butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
In a small bowl combine the egg and yogurt.
Add egg mixture to the flour mixture.
NOTE: At this point the mixture is a little dry but the moisture from the apple takes care of that.
Stir in the shredded apple.
Spoon batter into a large zip top bag; snip the corner about 1/2-inch and pipe batter into the prepared donut pan or muffin cups.
Spray a piece of plastic wrap large enough to cover the pan with non stick cooking spray; cover batter coated side down.
Chill 2 to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Remove plastic wrap; bake 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the donut or muffin comes out clean.
In a small bowl combine the 6 tablespoons of sugar and the 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
As soon as donuts are cool enough to handle, dip into cinnamon sugar to coat.
