Baked Apple Donuts With Maple-Cannabis Glaze

Ingredients

Donuts

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 ¼ cup applesauce, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Maple Glaze

  • 2 ½ tablespoons GanjaEats Maple Syrup
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2–3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • ¼ teaspoon maple flavoring
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350˚F. Grease two donut trays (enough for 12 donuts total).
  2. In a large bowl, combine applesauce, eggs, and sugar. Give these a light mix, then slowly add the orange juice, flour, baking powder, apple pie spice, vanilla, and salt. Blend well, then add the coconut oil and give it another good stir.
  3. Scoop the batter carefully into each donut pan, spreading the batter evenly. Put trays in oven and bake for 15–18 minutes, until golden in color. A toothpick should come out clean when poked into the donut. Allow to cool slightly, then remove donuts from tray and set them aside on a wire rack to cool thoroughly.
  4. While the donuts bake, combine the infused maple syrup, powdered sugar, heavy cream, maple flavoring, and salt to make the glaze. Mix well until you reach a creamy consistency.
  5. Once donuts are completely cooled, dip the top of each one into the glaze, coating them evenly. Return to rack glaze-side up and allow to set.
  6. Once glaze is set, the donuts are ready. Enjoy while they’re fresh!
