- First they're spicy, and then they're sweet. Today I'm showing you how I make my sriracha and maple-glazed doughnut holes. They're simple, fast, and super delicious. Let me show you how to make it. To get started on our doughnuts, you're going to need some biscuit dough. And this is what I love about this recipe. It's so fast because of the premade dough that you're gonna have doughnuts in no time. Go ahead and peel this off. Place... I think... There we go. All right, so we're gonna grab our biscuits, lay them out, and then we're gonna divide these into fours. These are gonna be our doughnut balls. All right, so they're four little even parts. And you're just gonna grab one of your parts and roll it into a ball. I love doughnuts, but I just hate the dough making process. It's very long, and I am not that patient, so this is why I love using store-bought dough. So now that our doughnut holes are done, we got nice little circles, we're gonna go ahead and fry these up. Here I have some preheated oil. A good tip to know if your oil's hot enough, you grab a wooden spoon and put it in the oil. And if you see bubbles forming around the bottom of the spoon, that means your oil is ready to go. These brown up pretty quickly. Should take about only a minute or so. All right, so I'm kinda using my spider to move them around. That way they're well-coated and well-fried on all sides. See, they're already getting nice and golden brown. That's it; these are good to go. So I'm gonna go ahead and drain these off here and fry the rest of my doughnuts. These are also really delicious too if you wanna roll them with some sugar and cinnamon right after they get out of the fryer. So while those cool a little bit, let's go ahead and make the glaze. So here I have a bowl, and we're gonna add some powdered sugar, some maple syrup, and then here's the kicker, pun intended, some sriracha. Now, you can add as little or as much as you want. You kind of want to find the right balance. I like a little spice, so I'm adding enough. And then we're just gonna whisk this until it's a nice glaze. Look at that color. Now that our glaze is done, we can do a couple things. You can either grab the doughnut holes and just dunk them right in. Just do half. Or you can grab a spatula and kind of drizzle them on top, just like that. All right, I can't wait any longer. Let's go ahead and give these babies a try. It's sweet and spicy, but so evenly balanced. This is a really, really great doughnut. I can't wait for you guys to try this at home. Step out of your comfort zone with doughnut flavorings and get super creative with it.
