I’ve only ever had donuts 3 times in my life. The first time was so heavenly and special, I had to experiment with them. Thus was born the maple glazed version. This recipe is so awesome because it’s made with coconut milk and the hint of nutmeg makes them smell just like the real deal.
My boyfriend definitely hooked me up when he made these for me the first time! This recipe is a collaboration with him, as I only made the frosting. Just LOOK at these babies!
Maple Glazed Donuts
- 2 1/4 cups (255 grams) all-purpose flour
- 2 egg yolks
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 cup panela or brown sugar
- 2 tbsps butter, at room temperature
- 1 tsp salt
- sunflower oil, for frying
- In small mixing bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Mix well. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until mixed well. Add egg yolks and mix on medium speed or by hand.
- Add half of flour mixture and mix well. Add coconut milk.
- Add rest of flour mixture until dough has formed. Place dough in greased bowl and cover. Chill for 1 hour.
- On floured surface, take chilled dough and roll out to about 1/2 in. thickness. Cut dough in donut shapes with a cookie cutter or large a glass (about 3 inch) and another cut with a smaller shot glass sized cutter, in the center of the doughnut. Save the center of the donut and roll out to make more donuts or just fry those little guys up and eat them, too!
- Lightly score (cut) three lines like a triangle on the doughnut for the next step, frying!
Prepare oil in frying pot, to 325°F. Place the donut in the oil with the triangle scored side up. Cook for approx. 20 sec, flip and fry for 1 minute. Flip again for 1 minute (or until you have a golden brown donut!)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Splash of water
Method (Maple Glaze)
- In small mixing bowl, add maple syrup followed by powdered sugar. Mix until beginning to become creamy.
- Add vanilla. Keep mixing until completely creamy. Adjust as needed with more powdered sugar if too wet, or more maple syrup or splash of water if too dry.
- Dip fried donuts in glaze by dunking in one side and placing on plate to dry.
Try not to eat all the donuts but hey, there’s no judgement here =D
