Slow Cooker Homemade Apple Cider with Apple Cider Doughnuts

Apple cider season is upon us, but unfortunately there are no apple orchards near me. So, I had to make do the best way I possibly could: making my own apple cider and apple cider doughnuts. I unfortunately had to use store bought apples, ugh. It is always much more satisfying picking your own apples, but these worked just as well. I used a crockpot so the entire house smelled deliciously of apple cider.  Plus, it makes an easier way to transport it or a simple way to keep warm for a football tailgate or any fall get-together.



Apple Cider


8 large Gala apples, or any apples of your choosing, cored & quartered

1 tbsp whole cloves

4 cinnamon sticks

1 tsp whole allspice

10 cups water

1/2 cup brown sugar



  1. Place apples into slow cooker. Add cloves, cinnamon sticks, allspice, and water.
  2. Cook 3 hours on high.
  3. Mash apples. Add brown sugar.
  4. Cook 3 hours on low.
  5. Strain. Keeps up to one week, or frozen.
  6. Serve hot or cold. I prefer hot. Garnish with apple slice, cinnamon stick, and star anise. Spice rum is optional, but recommended. 😉



Apple Cider Doughnuts


Doughnuts –

1  1/2 cups apple cider (use the fresh you just made)

Topping –

1 cup sugar

3/4 tsp cinnamon

3/4 tsp apple pie spice
