Apple Sauce Donuts

I'm so sorry to say I can't remember where I found this recipe. I'm not very good at deep frying so I made little donut hols instead. Over all these were pretty good.

1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 Tablespoons sour cream
2 Tablespoons melted butter
2 eggs, well beaten
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
4 1/4 cups flour

Cinnamon/Sugar Coating
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine sugar, applesauce, sour cream, and butter together in a medium bowl and whisk until smooth. Whisk in beaten eggs, until all combined. Add all remaining ingredients, and stir until mixture is completely combined. (The mixture will be think). Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour. Remove dough from refrigerator and turn out onto a really well floured counter. Roll out dough to 1/2" thick and cut into donut sized circles, with a hole in the center. Fill a saucepan with vegetable oil or shortening and heat over medium high heat until oil is hot for deep frying. Cook 1 -2 donuts at a time, depending on the size of the pan, turning once the bottoms are deeply golden browned. Once both sides are browned, remove from oil, and drain on a cooling rack, with paper towels underneath. Once donuts are slightly cooled, dredge each in the Cinnamon/Sugar coating. Make approximately 20 donuts.
