I get inspired to try new recipes from all places in my life.  Over the Christmas season, the local German bakeries were filling their pastries with apples.  Everything from doughnuts to pastry dough to cakes and tarts, it all had apples in it and my husband and I were in love!  Several times a week we were picking up a delicious bakery treat loaded with apples.

The Baked Explorations: Classic American Desserts Reinvented cookbook by Matt Lewis & Renato Poliafito has been on my shelf for about a year.  I flip through the pages to look at the beautiful food photos but nothing had really inspired me yet to want to bake from it’s pages.

Well, that is until I had an epiphany.  What if I took the Baked recipe for farm style doughnuts and filled them with the apple mixture we loved so much from the holidays? YES YES!  That’s it… I’m inspired!  I must make this!

And so I did.  And these Apple Filled Doughnuts were AMAZING.  My only regret was that I didn’t’ make more.  Or… that I couldn’t eat more.  Ha!

The dough is very simple to make.  No yeast, no waiting… just put the dough together, roll it out, cut it, fill it, fry it and roll it in sugar!   Too easy not to try, right?

I really hope you do!

Happy Baking!

      I didn’t mind the frying so much… I think it just takes a lot of practice to get it down perfect!
