French Toast Doughnuts with Bourbon Sugar

I think that French Toast is just the most perfect breakfast or brunch food.  Usually, when I'm hosting a brunch I always make this French Toast Casserole (everyone loves it), but this time as I was hosting a special brunch in honor of my friend Mary, I decided that I wanted to make several kinds of doughnuts. Y'all I'm very serious when I say that these doughnuts are crazy good. They are the perfect brunch staple--delicious french toast flavor with a bourbon sugar topping.

Yield: 12 dougnuts

French Toast Doughnuts with Bourbon Sugar

prep time: 10 mins cook time: 10 mins total time: 20 mins


For the doughnuts:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
For the bourbon sugar:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon bourbon
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


To make the doughnuts:
  1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Spray your doughnut pan with cooking spray and use a paper towel to make sure it is coated evenly.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and baking powder.  
  3. In another large bowl, combine the maple syrup, eggs, sugar, buttermilk, and melted butter.
  4. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together and stir until well combined. 
  5. Spoon the mixture into the doughnut pan. Make sure to only fill the cavity 1/2 full. (These doughnuts will rise.)
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.  The doughnuts will spring back when touched. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
To make the bourbon sugar:
  1. Combine the sugar and bourbon in a small bowl. Stir to combine.
  2. Brush the cooled doughnuts with the melted butter and dip into the bourbon sugar mixture.
