  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a donut hole (or donut) tray.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl, and stir to incorporate, being sure to break up any lumps.
  3. Pour the vinegar into a 1/2 cup measuring cup. Add the almond milk until the measuring cup is full. Let sit for one minute to ‘curdle’. This is a foolproof way of making dairy free buttermilk.
  4. Whisk together the melted butter, egg, vanilla and curdled milk. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and gently stir in the apples until no visible dry flour remains. Do not over mix.
  5. Transfer the batter to your prepared baking tin, and bake for 8-10 minutes until set. Let cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely before glazing.
  6. To make the glaze, whisk together the icing sugar, honey and almond milk. Dip each donut hole into the glaze, then place back on the wire rack to let the excess glaze drip off. Let the glaze firm up slightly before serving.
