On extra special mornings we make donuts. Or rather, I make them. They take a little planning ahead but in reality they aren’t as difficult as you’d imagine. When using a sourdough starter, they add a bit of a healthier element with the use of fermented dough. As with most of the recipes found here, I try to keep the sugar to a minimum and utilize healthier oil options. As written, these make up a delicious morning treat that you can feel good about serving.

What You Will Need To Make Sourdough Maple Glazed Donuts:

¾ cup water
2 cups all purpose flour
½ cup fed starter
1 tbsp honey
Pinch of salt
1 egg
¼ brown sugar
¼ coconut oil plus more for frying
1 tsp baking soda

Maple Glaze

1/4 cup Organic Real Maple Syrup
1 tbsp salted (butter room temp)
1/2 cup powdered sugar 1 tbsp milk

Directions:

Mix together the sourdough starter, flour, water and honey.

Knead with a stand mixer for approximately 5 minutes with a dough hook or you can knead the dough with your hands for about 7-8 minutes.

Once done, set in a larger bowl and cover with a tea towel for 12-24 hours.

The following morning, after the dough has risen and you are ready to make the donuts. Add the egg, brown sugar, baking soda and melted coconut oil to the dough. You can use a paddle on a mixer to do this or your hands work fine too.

Once completely incorporated, place the dough on a well floured surface. Cut into 10 pieces like shown.

You can fry them up just as they are or you can choose to form them into a donut shape as pictured below.

Heat a Dutch oven or cast iron skillet with enough coconut oil to fill it about half way full.

Make sure not to add the donuts to the skillet until the oil is all the way hot and sizzling when placing them in.

Cook each donut for about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes per side.

Once a deep brown color, place them on a waiting plate.

Once all the donuts are done cooked. You can mix up the glaze if you have not already done so by using either a manual whisk or the whisk attachment on your mixer

Take each donut and dip in the glaze. The heat from the donut will make the glaze spread over them.

Optional: If you want more of a maple frosting. You can mix double to amount of powdered sugar (1 cup) to 1/3 maple syrup and 2 tbsp of butter using the milk to thin if needed. This will make up a maple frosting instead of the glaze in the above recipe.
