Maple Doughnuts


36 portions




  1. Dissolve the yeast in warm water in a bowl. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat the milk until it boils and pour into a large bowl. Add butter, salt and maple sugar and mix until dissolved. Add the yeast mixture.
  3. Add half of the flour and mix using a beater. Stir in the eggs. Gradually add the rest of the flour until the dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl.
  4. Place the dough on a floured surface and knead adding more flour if it is sticky.
  5. Place in a buttered bowl and let rise until it doubles in size, for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  6. Knead for another minute and let rise for 30 minutes.
  7. On a floured surface, roll out the dough using a rolling-pin to a thickness of 1 cm (3/8 in). Let rise for 10 minutes.
  8. Preheat oil in a deep fryer to 190 °C (375 °F).
  9. Form the doughnuts into desired shapes and drop into the oil.
  10. Meanwhile, bring the maple syrup to a boil in a pan. Once the doughnuts are golden in colour, remove from oil and place in the maple syrup. For a strong maple flavour, let the doughnuts sit in the hot mixture for 2 minutes. Place the doughnuts on a cooling rack and let cool. Decorate.

Garnish: Decorate with any maple syrup product (butter, sugar, maple sugar chips, taffy, mini candy, etc.)
GREAT GIFT IDEA! A box of maple syrup doughnuts makes a wonderful gift!
