Cracker Salad

This week I made a yummy cracker salad adapted from one of our party linkers, Stacy Makes Cents. Her cracker salad recipe looked super yummy and she even made her own crackers! When I saw the original recipe that she adapted her salad from, I knew I wanted to go that route because I had everything on hand. I of course made my own changes from that original Paula Deen recipe, so I hope you enjoy!
Baked Apple Cider Donuts
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 3 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • ¼ tsp Nutmeg
  • ½ Cup Apple Cider
  • ½ Cup Apple Sauce
  • ⅔ Cup Maple Syrup
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp Oil

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and combine.
  3. Add all wet ingredients to a separate bowl and wisk together.
  4. Slowly add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix gently until completely blended and batter is made.
  5. Fill each donut well about half-way full.
  6. Cook for 8-11 minutes.
  7. Optional Donut Topping: After the donuts are baked and cooled a bit, melt a half stick of butter in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine ¾ cup sugar, 2 Tbsps Cinnamon and ½ tsp nutmeg. Dip top of donut in melted butter then sugar mixture.
