They’re so freaking easy I think I could make them with my eyes closed. Well not really but these definitely fit into the category of super easy.
Another look of the deliciousness that is just within your reach teehee
The below is a basic baked donut recipe found here and with some tweaks I’ve made them with a maple glaze frosting and topped with crispy bacon bits.
For the donuts:
2 cups plain flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
4 rashers bacon
For the glaze:
1 cup icing sugar
1 Tbsp hot water
1/4 cup maple syrup
First up, bake your bacon for about 20mins on 160C or until crispy. I have issues with frying so I prefer baking and the bacon is more awesome crispy.
Combine all donut ingredients, beat together until well blended.
I was looking and looking for a donut tray because I knew I was going to be baking the donuts instead of frying and when I found this crazy cute pink donut machine for $25 I couldn’t resist. So if you have a donut tray this recipe will most likely only make 12 normal sized donuts, with my mini machine it made about 30 mini donuts.
So if you have the donut tray you need to bake them for 8-10mins at 165C. With the donut machine it only took 2mins.
Let the donuts cool on a wire rack and while they’re cooling chop up your bacon into itty bitty bits.
To make the maple glaze whisk all the ingredients together. If the mixture is too thick just add a bit more hot water much not too much or the glaze will be to runny and won’t set.
Once the donuts have cooled, quickly dip half of the donut into the glaze and set back onto the wire rack.
Hopefully you haven’t gone overboard with the icing on your donuts or you’ll have an icing river on your counter which is hells annoying to clean.
Quickly sprinkle bacon bits on top of the donuts before the glaze sets and leave for about 30mins
Bacon! Donut! Maple glaze! It’s calling to you!
