(Baked) Maple Bacon Donuts

Yep, that’s right.  Have your donut with bacon…pretty genius really.  I almost want to call these the ‘Pancakes and Bacon’ donut.  For as long as I can remember, if I have pancakes and bacon together I end up dipping the bacon in the syrup.  That’s what these donuts remind me of – sweet and salty all the way.
