Golden brown and slightly crisp on the outside and wonderful flavor on the inside. The Apple Hut's cider doughnuts are sort of a hybrid between cake and pastry doughnuts. The texture of the doughnut was marvelous, and they held up well even a full day later.
It was several days before they started pressing apple cider so I missed out on that, but, hey, these doughnuts with coffee or just by themselves were worth the one-hour drive out of my way.
Kudos to Connie and Fritz Brockhus, the co-owners of Apple Hut (pictured above).
