Cinnamon Apple Donuts

October is coming to a close, so I had to squeeze in another apple recipe before it becomes all about the Christmas baking. Brace yourselves, because I’m the person who puts their Christmas tree up on November 1st. I have always found donuts to be daunting, and therefore never given them a shot. I’m glad I took a leap, because these have changed my mind! They’re easy and make the perfect fall treat.
