Maple Bacon Donut Bites & a Giveaway {Closed}

What can I say about these little bites of pure heaven? They are so amazingly good that you almost wish they were full size donuts...but eating a few million of these bite sized treats kind of tricks you into thinking you're making the better choice...kind of.

Bite sized cake donuts fried to perfection, dripping in maple icing, and sprinkled with maple pieces of crispy bacon. Can it get any better than this?

 Someone please pinch me if I'm dreaming!


Makes about 18-20 Donut Bites
Ingredients:


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 cup milk
Oil for frying
6-8 strips of Maple bacon

Maple Icing:

1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine until a glaze forms.

Directions:

In a skillet, fry bacon until crispy. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels. Break bacon into pieces. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, melted butter, and milk. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix to combine.

Pour two inches of oil into a medium saucepan. Test the oil with a small piece of dough to make sure it is the right temperature for frying. You want to make sure that it is not so hot that the dough browns too quickly, or else the inside will not be cooked through. When the oil is hot, use a small cookie dough scoop to extrude a ball of dough into the oil. Fry the donuts until golden brown and place on a paper towel.

Once the donuts are cool, dip them in the maple icing and sprinkle with bacon pieces.

Donut Recipe Adapted from The Novice Chef

Win an Apron from Pink Butterfly Aprons!


I have a confession to make…I have a bit of an obsession with collecting aprons. Classic, colorful, retro, frilly, over the top…you name it. I love em! Which is why I was delighted to add a beautiful new apron from Pink Butterfly Aprons to my always expanding collection!

Pink Butterfly Aprons is a boutique line of aprons designed, sewn and distributed in the USA. Their beautiful aprons are made to last a lifetime and are perfect for any age or occasion.


When I first put on my Annabelle I Pink Butterfly Apron I danced around the kitchen in delight admiring its adorable cows-in-the-field print, detailed with black and white gingham ruffles, and delicate pink bows.

Pink Butterfly Aprons are sturdy, durable, and designed to last. They are lined for excellent absorption with large pockets featuring removable bows for easy washing. And you know what else? There’s no need to tie the neck of the apron and risk messing up your hair, because each apron features a special sliding adjustor at the neck to loosen or tighten with ease. How cool is that?! Did I mention that Pink Butterfly Aprons has aprons for the entire family including Children's Aprons, adorable Mommy 'n Me sets, Men's aprons, and His and Hers?!

Pink Butterfly Aprons make a beautiful gift for any occasion. Birthdays, Weddings, Bridal Showers, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, or simply just because.

Wouldn’t you love to get your hands on one of these beauties?

Well, the lovely Ladies over at Pink Butterfly Aprons want to give one lucky Chelsea’s Culinary Indulgence reader a beautiful hand-made apron of their choice! Make sure to visit their site here to see all of their beautiful apron designs!
