Pancake Donuts

  • 2 cups pancake mix {I used Bisquick}
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup milk {I used 1/2 cup milk & 1/2 cup buttermilk}
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp butter {melted}

Maple Glaze

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp corn syrup
  • 2 tsp maple extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


Pancake Donuts

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Prepare donut pan by spraying each donut ring generously with non stick spray, set aside.  Measure pancake mix and sugar into a medium bowl.  In a separate bowl combine milk and egg, whisk together and add to dry ingredients.  Stir ingredients together and at the end, add melted butter and stir.  Fill donut pan by either spooning mixture into rings or filling a Ziploc bag and piping the mixture.  Bake for 10-13 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool for a minute and then turn donuts out of pan.

Maple Glaze

  1. While the pancake mix donuts are baking, combine the butter and brown sugar in a small sauce pan over medium heat.  Stir until the butter is melted and the sugar is mostly dissolved.  Remove from heat and add remaining glaze ingredients.  Whisk until smooth.  Dip baked donut tops into the glaze and set onto wax or parchment paper to set up. 

  2. These pancake mix donuts are best served immediately.  Store leftovers in an air tight container at room temperature.
