Maple Bacon Donuts
Recipe posted by Palouse Brand on April 25, 2016
We believe the nutrition of whole grain flour should extend beyond your typical “healthy” recipes. There is no reason to reserve the fiber and nutritional value of the whole wheat berry to certain recipes. We challenge you to try whole wheat flour in all of your baking. To start this challenge, we are providing you a recipe for whole wheat maple bacon donuts.
Whole wheat flour is typically thought to be dense and have too much bran for the tender, light, and airy donuts we all love. However, whole wheat flour does not have to be dense and the flavor of the bran pairs well with many ingredients often found in baking. We grow and sell two varieties of white wheat berries perfect for this recipe. The soft white wheat berry and the hard white wheat berry both provide a mild flavor and a deep, rich color.
We love these donuts and we hope you do to! When you try this recipe, please let us know by sharing a picture on Instagram with the hashtag #palousebrand or leaving a comment below.
In this recipe, fresh milled flour is combined with brown sugar, maple syrup, and apple cider. It is then topped with a maple glaze and your favorite bacon to give you tender maple bacon donuts that will become a family favorite! We promise it will rival any maple bar recipe made with traditional all-purpose flour.
This is a yeast recipe, so it does require a little extra time, but can be prepared in only 10 minutes before being left to rise for an hour. After the dough has risen, it is gently placed on a well floured surface and shaped. There is no need to wait any longer, just heat your oil and fry to perfection! If you like, you may also prepare and shape your donuts the evening before and let them rest overnight in the fridge. If you choose this option, be sure to spray the donuts with cooking spray and cover with plastic wrap before placing in the fridge. Pull the donuts out to room temperature for 20 minutes before heating your oil.
Donut Recipe Tip: If you are looking for more of a maple bar recipe, after your dough has risen, gently pat into a rectangle and cut into 8 small bars. Be a little cautious when frying if you chose the maple bar recipe, as it will fry more uneven than the traditional donut shape.
