  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Make With
Make With
Gold Medal Flour


  • 1
    In 3-quart heavy saucepan or 4-quart Dutch oven, heat 2 inches oil to 350°F.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat egg, milk and butter with fork. Stir in flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and bacon.
  • 3
    Carefully drop dough by heaping tablespoons, 6 balls at a time, into hot oil. Fry doughnut balls 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side, or until golden brown; drain on paper towels until cooled, about 20 minutes.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and water until smooth; stir in maple-flavored syrup. Add additional water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until thick glazing consistency. Dip cooled doughnut balls into glaze; let excess drip off. (If glaze disappears while drying, glaze may be too thin. Try dipping balls again, or thicken up glaze by adding a small amount of powdered sugar.) Place glazed doughnut balls on cooling rack; let stand until glaze is set, about 10 minutes.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Instead of heaping tablespoons of dough, use a 1 1/4 in. in diameter ice-cream scoop to spoon the dough into the oil.
  • tip 2
    Cook bacon quickly in the microwave. Place slices on microwavable plate lined with paper towels; cover with paper towel. Microwave on High 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp.
