In a medium-sized microwavable bowl, melt butter 30 seconds at a time until fully melted. Remove from microwave and pour in apple cider. Set aside to cool for at least 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix together flour,baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add sugar, honey, sour cream and beaten egg to the melted butter mixture and stir until combined.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overmix. Transfer batter to a piping bag or large freezer bag. Snip off a bottom corner and pipe batter into donut pan cavities
Bake 7–8 minutes and remove from oven. Allow donuts to sit in pan 1–2 minutes, then invert donuts onto a wire cooling rack.
To make topping, in a small bowl, melt butter and combine with apple cider.In a separate bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon mixture.Working quickly, dip each donut into the butter mixture to cover with butter, then immediately dip in the sugar and cinnamon mixture to coat.Place back on cooling rack to finish cooling.
Make sure you use apple cider, the kind you would drink, NOT apple cider vinegar. Vinegar donuts aren't tasty!
