I had never heard of these until Audrey Lintner posted about them the other day. Naturally, I looked them up and found a raft of references. Here are a few. If you don't like them, do a search of your own on cider donuts, cider donut recipe, apple cider donuts or any of many variations. You'll turn up more sites than you can shake a stick at, if that's your idea of a good time.

Apple fritters--now, those, I've heard of. While I was at it, I found this recipe for Nothin' to Fret about Apple Fritters by Rachel Ray on FoodNetwork.com.
The Rachel Ray recipe has apple rings, but I think I like 'em better with chunks. And I like 'em better if someone other than I makes them (yes, that is grammatically correct).
