4 1/2 tsps, divided
All-purpose flour 
  3 1/2 cups
6 tbsps, melted, cooled
2, lightly beaten

  1. Pour cider in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Then, reduce heat. Stirring, let the cider simmer for 15 min, until reduced to 1 cup. Allow the cider to cool. 
  2. Combine white sugar and 1 tbsp ground cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside. 
  3. Combine all-purpose flour, brown sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder, ground nutmeg, and 1 1/2 tsps cinnamon in a bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together butter, lightly beaten eggs, and cider.
  5. Pour the cider mixture over the flour mixture. Stir just until moist. Cover the bowl. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Divide the mixture in half.
  6. Prepare a surface by flouring it. Place the dough on the surface. Roll the dough into 1/2-inch thick rounds. Cut them out using a 2 1/2-inch cutter.
  7. Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat to 375° F (190° C).
  8. Add donuts to the stockpot. Cook for 1 min per side, or until golden and crispy. Line a plate with paper towels and transfer the donuts to the plate. Roll the donuts in the cinnamon mixture to coat. Enjoy your Apple Cider Donuts!
