Apple Cider Donuts

Freida and I made a little impromptu pit-stop at BabycakesNYC last week, and I indulged myself (and all my senses!) with an Apple Cider Donut. My mind was blown. When I got home I googled the goodie, and apparently these little meltable morsels are all the rage right now! Thought I’d share some of the fall donut love before the deep-fried festivities begin!

Here’s the recipe from StyleMePretty.com:
