One of the treats that we look most forward to all year are apple cider doughnuts. These delicious, cake donuts are made with fresh apple cider, spiked with nutmeg, and usually covered in cinnamon sugar. Available only in a handful of spots in Pittsburgh, they’re the perfect way to celebrate the Fall season.
