Maple Bacon Doughnuts
Sometimes I just don’t feel like dealing with the “difficult to work with” dough of homemade doughnuts but I still crave them nonetheless. My solution is making doughnuts out of biscuit dough. Using to create doughnuts is the most genius thing ever! They taste incredible! You get everything from a doughnut you want but its a much easier process.
Servings 8 doughnuts
Calories 306 kcal
Vegetable oil for frying 1 16.3 ounce can Grands! biscuits 1/2 cup powdered sugar 1 teaspoon melted butter 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 3 slices hormel bacon fried or baked until crispy and diced into small pieces
Heat oil over high heat.
Separate biscuits and cut out a hole in the center of each using the top of your plastic oil container to create the doughnuts.
Fry each doughnut until golden brown on both sides and drain on cooling rack with paper towels beneath.
While doughnuts drain, whisk together powdered sugar, butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until smooth and pourable in a medium sized bowl.
Dip one side of each doughnut into the maple glaze and place on a cooling rack.
Sprinkle bacon bits over the glaze of each doughnut and serve.
