Maple Doughnuts

These cake doughnuts were one of the doughnuts we made yesterday for Doughnut Days. The flavor from the addition of maple syrup made them a big hit. They can be eaten plain, rolled in cinnamon sugar or dipped in a powdered sugar glaze.

Maple Doughnuts

3 c. flour

1 T. baking powder

2 t. cinnamon

1 t. salt

1/2 t. grated ginger

2 eggs

1/2 c. sugar

1/2 c. maple syrup

1/3 c. buttermilk

1/4 c. melted butter

oil for deep frying

cinnamon sugar

Combine dry ingredients and set aside. In another bowl beat together eggs, sugar and syrup until well mixed. Stir in buttermilk and butter then stir in dry ingredients. Do not over mix. Chill dough at least a couple of hours before using. Overnight is better. When ready to use, heat oil to 375 degrees. While oil is heating roll dough out, on floured surface,  1/2 inch thick and cut out with a doughnut cutter. Fry several at a time for 1 minute per side. Drain on paper towels. Roll warm doughnuts in cinnamon sugar. Re-roll scraps. You will end up with about 18 doughnuts and 18 doughnut holes.
