There’s just something a nice, warm, soft donut right out of the oven that feels so homey and nice!

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups of flour

Rough chop the pecans and add them to a non stick pan with the salt, maple syrup and brown sugar.

Heat to simmer and then reduce a bit over medium heat.  Stir regularly and turn off to cool when the liquid is thick and starting to crystalize again.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Using a stand mixer, combine the rest of the ingredients (I do this all at once).  Stir until just combined and then add in most of the candied nuts, reserving a little bit for on top of the donuts if desired.  Mix again to evenly distribute the nuts.

Spray your donut pan with non stick spray and then fill each well about half full. If you don’t have a donut pan, GO GET ONE! They’re so much fun to use! I really like the Norpro 3980 12-Count Nonstick Mini Donut Pan, which you can get on Amazon.

The batter will rise so you don’t want to fill them up too much. Make sure the batter goes evenly around the center of the well, just like a circle would or you might end up with more of a C shape.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and baked through when checked with a toothpick.

Allow to cool almost completely before enjoying (this will help them hold together).
