I'm pretty convinced that, collectively, all of you on here have the recipe to make everything baking-related in the world, so I'm betting that you guys will be able to help with this.

I may in fact be crazy, but I want to try my hand at homemade apple donuts. Last fall, I had an apple donut with crumb topping that was just amazing. I have a ton of candidate recipes for the apple donuts themselves, but I'm having trouble with the finishing touches. I don't know if I'm just putting the wrong search terms into google or what the deal is, but unless it's a baked donut (or one for a "raw food" diet :/), I can't seem to find a recipe for crumb topping or a good one for a very thin glaze. The donuts I had last fall were fried, dipped in a thin glaze (they were coated all over in this stuff--it wasn't thick like you'd find on something like a chocolate glazed donut), and had the crumb topping sprinkled on top. Cinnamon was definitely involved. I think there's a high probability that there were walnuts as well.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Could the topping be like one found on an apple crisp? The glaze might just be powdered sugar and water or milk.

I'd say it was closer to a streusel than what you'd see on a crisp. Maybe I could somehow bake streusel, crumble it up, and then sprinkle it on the donuts?

I may try to just water down one of the thicker glaze recipes until it's really thin and see how that goes.

Thanks!

Here's something I found, not sure if it's what you're looking for. It's a donut with a sugared walnut streusel.

Thanks! I think I'm going to try the streusal topping for my crumbs. I also found a recipe (as part of a cookie recipe) for baking regular streusel by itself: http://bakingbites.com/2009/01/oatmeal-streusel-cookies/. I feel that it may have a future application in (cup)caking.

I'm going to use this recipe for the donuts: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A8595-2004Oct5_2.html. I think I'm going to fry in shortening (per Smitten Kitchen) rather than vegetable oil though.
