Best Apple Cider Cinnamon Donuts?

  • k

I love a good heavy cake donut, especially the apple cider donuts that come out around this year, and of those, especially the ones with cinnamon sugar on top. Where can I find them without going upstate to an apple orchard? The ones sold at the stand I tried at the Union Square Greenmarket were very disappointing - dry and flavorless.

  1. Order them from Delicious Orchards in Colts Neck, NJ. Those are far and away the best cakey but not overly chewy apple donuts.

    Or take a roadtrip - go down the NJ Turnpike to Exit 11, get on US 9 south to Old Bridge, left-exit to NJ-34 and go about 15 miles until you see it on the right hand side... it's quite the place.

    1. look for the treelicious stand - I think on Fridays, maybe other days - I dont recommend their other baked goods, but their donuts are a cut above the other stands that sell em in bags.
