Bacon Doughnuts

As promised I will post all the recipes from Doughnut Daze. New this year was a bacon doughnut I made for  my friend, Kim. I used a cake doughnut recipe and added cooked bacon to the dough. I also used a maple glaze to top them and then added candied bacon on top. Decadent, yes, but so good.
