Chilebrown at home

Saturday, July 18, 2009


On a previous Meat Adventure to Oregon, we stopped at Voodoo Doughnuts and had a bacon maple bar. Ever since that Homer Simpson moment, maple doughnuts have been on my mind. Today, Bacon doughnuts with a Chilebrown twist will be created.. These pillows of fried sweet dough will have bacon and apples in the center. They will be frosted with a maple frosting and garnished with of course more bacon. Today's bacon comes from Swingle Meats located in Jackson, California. Before we start cooking, I will leave you with a quote from Homer Simpson,

Homer: Are you saying you're never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Ham?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Pork chops?
Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal.
Homer: Heh heh heh. Ooh, yeah, right, Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.

Apple, Bacon Doughnuts
  1. 4 cups of flour
  2. 1 tablespoon dry yeast
  3. 6 tablespoons sugar
  4. 1.2 teaspoon salt
  5. 1 cup milk
  6. 2 eggs beaten
  7. 3/4 stick butter softened
  8. 2 apples peeled, cored and cubed
  9. 3 strips bacon cooked and cubed

Heat milk and add sugar. Add yeast to mixture and proof for 5 minuets. Add rest of ingredients except bacon and apples. Knead for 5 minutes. Add bacon and apples and knead to incorporate. Let rise for 2 1/2 hours. Roll out dough mixture and cut into doughnut shapes. Let rise for 45 more minutes. Heat up some vegetable oil to 375 degrees. Fry your dough for aprox 1 minute on each side or until golden brown.


  1. 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  2. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  3. 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  4. 3 tablespoons milk

Combine and stir ingredients till smooth. Drizzle over the warm doughnuts and garnish with bacon. I think Homer Simpson would be proud of me. "MMMMMMMMMM DOUGHNUTS!"

One of my favorite parts is the bacon on top, you can just pick off a good hunk and eat it!
