The only thing I take seriously is my Freedom. And Bacon.

Maple Bacon Donut Holes

Oh, I wish I could take credit for this - but it comes from Samiwich and Addiecakes! Please visit for more awesome recipes!

1 1/2 c powdered sugar
1/4 c maple syrup
1/4 c water
* I used milk

1 1/2 c of all-purpose flour
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 c of lightly packed brown sugar
1/4 c of white sugar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp nutmeg
1/3 c of cold butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 c of milk, room temperature
* I added an extra half cup because it looked dry
1 1/2 c of bite size chunks of apple, peeled and cored
* I grated the apple
1 egg, room temperature
1 c coarsely chopped cooked bacon

• In a medium-sized bowl, mix all 3 glaze ingredients until you get the consistency you like. Set aside.

• Whisk the flour, baking powder, sugars, salt and and nutmeg in a bowl.
• Add the cold chopped butter. Rub the pieces of butter with the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
• Mix in the milk and fold in the apples.
• In a separate bowl, beat the egg then add to the flour mixture. Stir using a spatula or spoon making sure not to over mix.
• Preheat your doughnut hole maker (refer to your box instructions), this only takes a couple minutes.
* I greased the mold with a bit of melted butter to prevent sticking.
• Place a spoonful of batter into each mold of a buttered mini muffin pan.
• Bake for 5-6 minutes or until the donuts are just golden. Remove from the doughnut hole maker.
• Dunk in the maple glaze then place on a wire rack.
• Immediately sprinkle with bacon.

• If you don't have a doughnut hole maker, you can use a mini muffin pan. Preheat your oven to 350˚F and bake for 15-18 min.
• The doughnut holes get soggy the next day, so they should be eaten the day they are made.
