Maple Bacon Doughnuts
Hello & Happy Monday!!
While I should be sharing something that’s perhaps more on the lighter side being that it’s Monday, but..
What would be the fun in that?!
With the whole bacon dessert concept still in full swing, I thought it would be neat to explore some recipes! While I don’t really have an affinity for the flavor of bacon, I love smokiness, and I love maple!
What I love most about this recipe is that its effortless, packs tons of flavor, is light and fluffy, and looks aesthetically..
If you’re looking for a doughnut that doesn’t dissapoint,
