|Apple cinnamon, a winning team any day of the week.|
Traditionally, autumn gets the bragging rights to the apple, what with all the picking and hayrides and cider and so forth. But don't forget to let winter have its fun too. These baked vegan whole-wheat apple walnut cake donuts go marvelously with a fresh snowfall, a few poinsettias, and a hum to the tune of "Feliz Navidad".

Apple Walnut Donuts
Yields 1 dozen donuts
3 c whole wheat flour
3 1/2 t baking powder
1 c sugar, scant
1 t salt
1 t nutmeg
1 c safflower oil, or any vegetable oil
2/3 c applesauce
1 c grated apples (I used 1 1/2 Romas in a food processor)
1/2 finely chopped walnuts
Cinnamon sugar for topping
Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease 2 donut pans or 1 cupcake pan.
Combine everything up to and including the oil in a large bowl. Crumb ingredients with your hands until well mixed. Add remaining ingredients (besides the topping).
Spoon into pans, 3/4 full. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean and top is golden brown. Let cool completely before removing from pan. One at a time, gently toss donut in a bowl full of the cinnamon sugar to ensure a complete coating.
