In continuation of recipes for my fall food frenzy I wanted to share with you a sweet treat to accompany your morning coffee. Doughnuts aren’t just for cops you know … ha ha. Sorry DM and TL, I just had to throw that joke out there. Donuts are a real treat for my kids and while I try not to give them too much sugar, the occasional homemade doughnut is a yummy treat. The subtle flavors of pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg give a hint of fall in every bite. Top it all off with the rich and buttery taste of a maple glaze and you have one tasty treat. To kick this doughnut up a notch I also tried it with some bacon on top, yes, you heard me right, bacon. If you are a bacon lover this doughnut will soon become your best friend.
Directions: In a large bowl, combine 2 cups of the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, and salt. In a medium bowl combine milk and melted butter,. In large mixing bowl combine egg, sugar, and care vanilla extract; beat with an electric mixer about three minutes or until thick. Alternately add flour mixture and milk mixture to egg mixture, beating after each addition just until combined. Stir in remaining 1 cup flour. Cover dough; chill for two hours.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough until one half-inch thick. Cut down with a floured 21 1/2 inch doughnut cutter, dipping cutter into flower between cuts. Three role as necessary. Fried doughnuts about two minutes on each side in deep hot bath about 375°F. turn once was slotted spoon. Repeat with remaining doughnut holes.
Allowed donuts to call in order to Glace or shape warm donuts in a bag with table sugar. Cool donuts on a wire rack and enjoy. You can also freeze them but wait to glaze until you are ready to serve them up!
