  • 8 slices California Goldminer® Sourdough Sourdough Square
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, diced
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ cup apple cider
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2–3 cups canola oil
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • Powdered sugar


  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Sauté apples in butter until tender (approximately 5 minutes). Add cinnamon, apple cider, sugar and applesauce and continue cooking for 5 more minutes.
  2. Ladle ½ cup of the cooking liquid into a small bowl, returning any apple pieces to the skillet. Whisk cornstarch into bowl until smooth. Return mixture to skillet and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, and then reduce heat and cook until mixture thickens (approximately 5 minutes).
  3. Spread apple mixture on 4 slices of bread. Top with remaining slices of bread. Use a glass or round cookie cutter to cut a circle from each sandwich. Pinch down edges of bread pocket so no filling escapes.
  4. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Place flour in a separate small bowl. Coat both sides of each doughnut in egg mixture. Dip doughnut in flour, coating both sides, then dip again in egg mixture.
  6. Place doughnuts in oil and cook for 6 minutes, turning halfway through.
  7. Remove and let cool for 2 minutes before sprinkling with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
