BC Cider Week: Apple Cider Brown Butter Donuts

We're celebrating BC Cider! From August 6th - 16th, join us and our friends at KIS Consulting as we toast our favourites from across this province. This week, we're putting their Bordertown Hard Pressed Apple Cider to work in this delicious late summer delight. Who needs the busy fairway - we've got your mini doughnuts right here!

Apple Cider Brown Butter Donuts

We can't get enough of Hunter Browns' Brown Butter Cubes (if you haven't had the opportunity to try browned butter yet, now is your chance)! Brown butter, or beurre noisette, is a staple gourmet ingredient known as the "truffle oil of butter". Its caramelesque aroma and slightly nutty taste can elevate almost any dish but is known for being tedious to cook and often intimidating to make. But Hunter Browns' makes it easy. Drop by Well Seasoned (or order online to hav ready for pick-up) and get a frozen, ready-to-use package today!



  1. In a small bowl, mix sugar & set aside cinnamon.
  2. In a large bowl, beat sugar and brown butter until crumbly. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; add to sugar mixture alternately with cider.
  3. In a large high sided frying pan, heat oil to 350°. Carefully drop batter by tablespoonfuls, a few at a time, into hot oil. Fry until dark golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels; cool 5 minutes.
  4. Toss in cinnamon sugar & serve.
