Apple Cider Doughnuts.

I'm not sure where the recipe originally came from, but i found lying about my house and decided to veganize it and try it out! its perfect for fall.

*2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
egg replacer equivalent to 2 eggs
*1/3 cup apple cider
4 tablespoons melted margarine
tons of vegetable oil for frying

1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons apple cider
2 dashes cinnamon
1 dash nutmeg

*usually I end up adding more after i put it on a floured surface.

    In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients. In another bowl, whisk together the egg replacer and cider. Stir in melted margarine. Make a well in the center and pour in dry ingredients, then stir together. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and pat it into a 1/2 inch high circular shape. Heat about 3 inches of vegetable oil in a deep pot over medium high heat. Use two cups (one about three times bigger than the other) to form rings in the dough. When you think the oil is hot enough, test it by dropping in (i use chopsticks, but the spoons with holes in them will work nicely) a doughnut hole. It should have bubbles surrounding it and come to the surface in a matter of seconds. When this is achieved, drop about two doughnuts or four doughnut holes into the oil at a time, waiting for both sides to be brown, this usually takes about a minute. Pick them up and put them on a cookie tray with paper towels on them to drain the oil.
    To make the glaze, stir together the sugar and cider, then add spices. Spoon this mixture onto the doughnuts.

and now you have yourself some mighty tasty doughnuts.
