Hodgson Mills is sponsoring the “Have a Grain Holiday Recipe Contest” and I was invited to enter. I had to put on the old thinking cap and figure out a holiday treat that was not only sweet, but had the potential to be healthier – consisting of none-other-than Hodgson Mills healthy whole wheat four.
Have a Grain Holiday Recipe Contest
Contestants need to submit an original, made-from-scratch, sweet or savory holiday recipe (bread, cakes, cookies, pies, muffins, brownies – you name it!) using Hodgson Mill® Whole Wheat flour and/or Hodgson Mill® “Best for Bread” flour. My kids love the Baked Apple Cider Doughnut Holes that I recently made, so I thought I would alter the recipe using Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat flour and enter the recipe into this contest. Here is the recipe:
Baked Apple Cider Powdered Whole Wheat Doughnut Holes
- 1 3/4 cups Hodgson Mills Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup apple, finely chopped (I used Mac.)
- 1/3 cup apple cider
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/3 cup plain yogurt (I used low-fat, plain Greek)
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil
- confectionery (powdered) sugar
- Preheat Oven to 325 degrees or if you have one – Preheat your trusty “Cake Pop Bakery Maker.”
- In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
- Set aside.
- Chop apple into small pieces or use food processor to puree and set aside.
- In a large bowl combine egg, brown sugar, apple, maple syrup, apple cider, yogurt and oil.
- Mix well until blended.
- In small amounts add in flour mixture and beat until just moistened.
- Spoon batter into greased mini muffin cups, filling no more than ¾ full. Bake for approximately 15 – 20 minutes, until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
- If baking in the Cake Pop Bakery maker, use cooking spray to coat and bake for 5 – 7 minutes. Doughnuts will brown and firm to the touch.
- While doughnuts are baking, prepare a shallow bowl with powdered sugar. Once doughnuts have finished baking, immediately place doughnut holes in the powdered sugar bowl and roll to coat completely. Makes about 18-20. Serve warm.

So how did they taste? The whole wheat flour gives the doughnuts a different, heavy consistency, but that’s not a bad thing! The boys gobbled them up just the same. If I can get more fiber into their diet I’m winning – contest or no contest!
