Cider doughnuts, one of America’s most distinctive desserts

For many New Englanders — and for people across the country who grew up near apple orchards — it’s just not autumn without cider and donuts.

LA SIDRA.- Apple cider doughnuts are a harvest tradition in autumn in the northeastern United States and are sometimes sold at cider mills.

They are often paired with apple cider, and may be covered with cinnamon and/or granulated sugar. They get their flavour from cinnamon, nutmeg and apple cider used in the batter.

They made their commercial debut in the United States in the 1950’s, as New York Times article from 1951 quoted:

“A new type of product, the Sweet Cider Doughnut will be introduced by the Doughnut Corporation of America in its twenty-third annual campaign this fall to increase doughnut sales. The new item is a spicy round cake that is expected to have a natural fall appeal”.
