The cake doughnut is made with Seedling apple cider and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, and it's an alternative to the basic buttermilk doughnut for those of us who don't love frosted, filled cakes.

Glazed & Infused unveiled its new fall doughnut menu today and graciously sent us a box of the new flavors to try. They are: pineapple coconut, caramel pumpkin pecan, white chocolate cranberry, Seedling apple cider, and ham and cheddar, Glazed’s first savory doughnut. Here’s how they taste.
