When Cider Met Donut

eastcider honey glazed blueberry donut recipe

Since it was a hit on Twitter, I felt compelled to make one of the first few posts on this website be about two of my favorite things: a good drink and a good donut. Presenting the Eastciders Texas Honey Cider-glazed blueberry donut.

Here are the (super simple) directions:

  1. Get a blueberry donut.
  2. Heat up a sauce pan on high and pour half a can of Austin Eastcider’s Texas Honey Cider into it. Stir the whole time. Enjoy the other half of the can as a tasty beverage as you do so.
  3. Once the bubbles start popping up, drop a generous helping of butter into the pan. Let the two ingredients marinate as you stir.
  4. Soon, the glaze will start to thicken up a bit. Give it a few more minutes on the stove, transition the glaze to a bowl and then pop it in the freezer.
  5. The glaze now has to sit in the freezer for about 30 minutes until it has the consistency of birthday cake icing.
  6. Take the cold glaze and spread it over the blueberry donut. If it’s too solid, nuke the glaze in the microwave for no more than 5 -10 seconds. This will ensure an easy pour over the donut.
  7. Eat up.
