Are you craving a donut? Well, you probably are now! We had an extra tube of Cinnamon Rolls, specifically the Maple brown sugar kind, but didn’t want to wait like 20 minutes. The waffle iron was already out so we thought, go for it!
These literally take 3 minutes and are freaking delicious. Cinna-Waffle? Waffle-bun? Just put it in my mouth?! Just eat it. You’ll be so happy.
Happy Monday! We originally made these donuts on National Donut Day and we liked them so much we wanted to share! On National Donut Day, we wanted to make something quick and easy, and found this great recipe that everyone in the house loved!
You really have to watch these when you cook, because they brown really quickly and sometimes can brown before the inside is cooked. So make sure you watch the oil temperature and don’t let it get too hot!
Cinnamon Sugar Donut Holes
- 1 (Heaping) Cup of Bisquick Pancake Mix
- 1 Tablespoon Bakers Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract/Paste
- 1/2 Teaspoon Maple Extract
- 1/2 Cup Milk
- 1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- Vegetable or Peanut Oil
In a bowl mix together, the pancake mix, bakers sugar, vanilla, maple and milk until combined. In a separate medium sized bowl, mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon together and set aside.
In a heavy bottom pot, heat up the oil. You want to use enough oil to cover at least 1 inch.
Using an small ice cream scoop, drop the batter into the hot oil. Frying no more than 4 to 5 at a time. You want to fry them until golden brown, about 2 minutes.
Remove the donut holes from the oil (shaking off excess oil) and place them in the cinnamon sugar. Carefully, roll them in the cinnamon sugar. Set on a cooling rack and serve when cool.
Happy National Donut Day!
Here are some pictures of our favorite donuts. The last two photos are from our trip to Portland (Voodoo Donuts) and the first one is a fake Cronut (from Kettle Glazed).
A beautiful donut that has pastry cream, croissant inside, cinnamon sugar and chocolate drizzle. If you’re in Los Angeles, check out one of our favorites, Kettle Glazed. A little hole in the wall, with awesome donuts and a super friendly staff.
These two beauties are from Portland, Oregon from a beautiful shop called Voodoo Donut. If you haven’t heard of it, do yourself a favor and open a new tab, open youtube and search away.
This little dude is there signature donut. A perfect morsel filled with a raspberry filling and covered in chocolate glaze. SO. GOOD.
And this, this beauty. Bacon and maple. Need we say more? A pillowy cloud of goodness covered in a maple glaze topped with perfectly cooked bacon. WE LOVE DONUTS! And as we write this, we are making donut holes in on honor of this special day!
