Maple Glazed Tea Donuts


I am not a fan of breakfast. I like breakfast foods for dinner but I am not a breakfast eater. A cup of coffee and maybe a piece of toast, once in a while, and I am happy. But, occasionally on the weekends we make something special for breakfast. These Maple Tea Donuts are fairly easy and ready in about 30-40 minutes!

Verdict:

These are a simple plain donut with a sweet, sweet, glaze. The donuts are good with a glaze, frosting or cinnamon sugar on them but just kind of bland plain. Add the maple glaze and sprinkle some Maple Pecan Granola over the glaze too, if you have some, to add a bit of crunch and a great flavor.

You can change the extract flavor and add extra spices that your family would like. Change the recipe up and play with it to see what new combinations you can make!

Maple Glaze Tea Donuts

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (or maple)
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup, pure
  • dash of salt

Crisco for frying donuts

Directions:

  1. Cream together butter and sugar in a large bowl. Add eggs and beat again. Add sour cream, vanilla, and half and half to butter mixture. Beat until smooth.
  2. Add flour, baking powder, and salt to butter mixture and mix until just smooth.
  3. Heat Crisco over medium-low heat to 360 to 375 degrees for best result. Drop by rounded tablespoons carefully into the oil as not to have any splash. Don’t over crowd the pan.  Cook until golden in color on one side and then flip them over to finish cooking. Carefully remove the donuts with a slotted spoon to paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
  4. While donuts are cooking mix powdered sugar, maple syrup, and salt in a bowl. Mixture should be fairly thin.
  5. Once the donuts are cool dip the top of each donut in the glaze set on a rack to dry. Sprinkle with toppings such as Maple Pecan granola for extra flavor if you like.
