We’ve been doing it for years and you can too… We’re making homemade donuts!
This recipe is a little different than the donuts we serve at the farm for Maple Month, but they’re just as special. What’s even better is that most of these ingredients are already in your cupboards and fridge, so what are you waiting for?
Maple Bacon Mini Donuts
- 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- ½ cup milk
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- Oil for deep frying
- 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
- 3 tablespoons Meridan Hill maple syrup
- tablespoon milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Six maple flavored strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
- Using a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the egg, milk, and melted butter.
- Combine the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir all ingredients together.
- Using a deep fryer, deep dish skillet or stock pot, fill the bottom with 2-3” of oil. Heat to 350 degrees.
- Once the oil is hot, drop in a spoonful of batter at a time.
- Fry for 3-4 minutes or until the mini donuts are golden brown. Make sure to carefully turn the donuts often! Drain on paper towels
- Using a small bowl, whisk the maple syrup, confectioner’s sugar, milk, and vanilla until it’s a smooth consistency.
- While the donuts are still warm, dip them into the maple glaze and sprinkle with the bacon crumbles.
- Dig in!
Set these on the kitchen counter and watch how fast every member of your family runs to grab some.
*Be careful when working with hot oil!
