|The first doughnut!|

Last week, however, Mike and I found ourselves at Bed Bath and Beyond (yup - shopping, in an actual store!). We went looking for specific items and came home without them. We did come home with a new doughnut pan though! Yippee! Time to make the doughnuts!
So, today I had some time and decided to try my hand at the baked bliss. I got out all of the ingredients, and set about cooking the bacon, and mixing all of the ingredients as laid out in the recipe (though I only made half the amount). The prep was relatively easy, and didn't take too much time before everything went into the oven.
The process went as follows:
|Prep pan (bacon and maple syrup)|
|Fill with batter and into the oven|
|While baking, mix glaze|
|Remove tasty treats from oven|
|Turn onto parchment paper|
|Glaze and enjoy!|
I let Mike take the first bite, given that he is the aficionado at our house :). The verdict was that the doughnuts had awesome flavor, but that they tasted a bit more (OK, a lot more!) like a waffle than a doughnut. I agreed.
They will be delicious for breakfast tomorrow! And next up - trying to fry some doughnuts...
