Apple Cinnamon Donut Holes

Today I made donut holes using my wonderful bread recipe.  Instead of water to set the yeast I used 100% Apple juice.  They turned out great!

1 ¼ Cups 100% Apple Juice
1/8 Cup Unsweetened applesauce
1/8 Cup honey
1 ½ Cups unbleached flour – wheat, white, or a combination of both -- sifted
½ Tablespoon potato powder – can substitute regular flour or oat flour
1 Tablespoon Applesauce Powder – can substitute regular white sugar, raw sugar, or brown sugar
1 ½ Tablespoons raw sugar – can substitute regular white (meaning granulated) sugar or brown sugar
¼ Cup dry powdered milk
½ Tablespoon powdered Egg mix – can leave this out if necessary
4 teaspoons vital wheat gluten
1 Rounded Tablespoon SAF instant yeast
1/2 Tablespoon Wheat Germ
1/2 Tablespoon Farina/Creamy Wheat
1 apple peeled and finely diced

1 ½ Cups flour – sifted –

Remember granulated or white sugar is really bad for you. Also if using white flour try to get the unbleached stuff (it’s healthier for you – it also tastes much better)

Use dough hook—for Kitchen Aid when using dough hook never use more than a 2 on the speed.

Kitchen Aid does not tolerate this recipe doubled very well.

Very warm apple juice, honey, Sugar, & yeast, stir and set aside to start rising.

Put applesauce, apple, 1 1/2 C. flour, potato powder, applesauce powder, milk, egg mix, gluten, wheat germ, & creamy wheat into bowl. 

Add yeast mixture to dry mixture, run mixer for about 15 seconds.  Cover and let raise 6 minutes.

Add remaining flour 1 1/2 C.

Let knead for 6 minutes if white bread or 9 minutes for 1/2 white 1/2 wheat, or 12 minutes for whole wheat. Stop machine and let rise Covered, for 15 minutes for white or 20 minutes 1/2 & 1/2 or whole wheat(covered). 

Remove dough from the bowl. For bread loaves to be nice and smooth looking—roll dough out flat on floured surface then roll up into a loaf and tuck in ends. Form into loaves, rolls, breadsticks, cinnamon rolls, pizza crust, etc. Place in cooking sprayed & floured dish, cookie sheet, or pizza pan cover and let raise 20 to 60 minutes, or longer. Pizza crust does not need final rising.  For donut holes spray hands with cooking spray, roll dough to perfect sized holes, and roll in cinnamon sugar.  (Bake donut holes at 375 for 10 minutes)

Turn oven on to 350 degrees F. Bake 20 to 30 minutes depending on what you are baking, and depending on how hot your oven cooks.

Makes 1 Large bread loaf = 1 ¼ loaves – you’ll need and x-tra large loaf pan for this recipe.

Roll dough balls into cinnamon before baking.

If you live in a dry climate, you may want to put a pot of water on the stove to boil (I put peppermint extract in mine) while you make and raise the bread. This will help your bread to raise better.
