As per the Awesome Wifie Code, I have been experimenting with different maple recipes before Nick gets home from Afghanistan. He loves maple everything! Me personally, I will eat maple nut goodies (I think that's what they are called), but that's about it. I barely put syrup on my pancakes and waffles, while Nick and the kids drench theirs. I'm the weirdo in the family. He even for a while smoked maple-flavored nicotine juice in his e-cig - which by the way, I hated. The smell of maple makes me nauseated and apparently it made his coworker hungry all day long for breakfast! :)
I love making donuts. They are such an easy thing to make and there's so much variety. I knew these would be a huge hit with the kids because they'll eat anything with bacon. These are more dense donuts instead of light and fluffy, but it really goes with the maple and bacon. I'm hoping to make them again soon when Nick is home :)

- 2 cups flour
- 3/4 cup sugar
