Riley is a donut lover who has recently become a bacon lover. So he had been begging me for both for breakfast the one morning. I decided to take my Maple Bacon Donut recipe and change it up slightly by using pancake batter donuts. I also decided to make them kind of like a “Funfetti” style by using bacon crumbles in the batter like you would sprinkles.
These donuts are fairly easy to make. They just take a bit of time because you have to fry and chop the bacon before making and then glazing the donuts.
For the batter, you start by mixing your dry ingredients together followed by adding the eggs. Next you stir in the milk and oil. Once your batter is ready you can start making the donuts. Of course I used my Sunbeam Mini Donut Maker, I filled the molds almost all the way before adding some bacon crumbles and shutting the lid.
While the batches of donuts where cooking, I mixed up some maple glaze. It is the easiest glaze I’ve ever made. Just add Maple syrup to powdered sugar till its the consistency you want. I tend to test my glaze out thicker and then thin it out if need be. After I glazed the donuts, Riley sprinkled bacon crumbles on top.
