Baked Apple and Cinnamon Doughnuts

Baked apple and cinnamon doughnuts by Starting Solids Australia

These doughnuts are a quick and easy version of a favourite- the classic cinnamon sugar doughnut. They are freezer friendly too and sure to be a great addition to your kids lunch box!

Age Recommendation - Without the addition of the cinnamon sugar coating after baking- these doughnut would be suitable from 9-12 months of age. We want to avoid added sugar for babies and toddlers where possible. 


This recipe contains wheat, dairy and eggs:
