Ingredients

  • 1  Cup  all-purpose flour
  • 3  Tablespoons  packed brown sugar
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/8  Teaspoon  salt
  • 1/3  Cup  plus 1 tablespoon buttermilk
  • egg
  • 1  Tablespoon  butter, melted
  • 12-ounce can SPAM Hickory Smoked, SPAM with bacon, or SPAM classic
  • 3/4  Cups  powdered sugar
  • 1  Teaspoon  maple flavor

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Stir in 1/3 cup buttermilk, the egg, and melted butter. Beat these together until well blended. Spoon the batter into a pastry bag fitted with a round tip or a resealable plastic bag. Chill the mixture for 1 hour. Meanwhile, prepare the SPAM rings and glaze.

Remove the SPAM from the can and slice from the lid side to the bottom into 12 slices (each slice about 1/4-inch thick). Using a 1 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter, cut each slice of SPAM into 2 rounds (you should have a total of 24 rounds from the can of SPAM). Using a straw, knife, or small pastry tip, cut a small circle out of the center of each piece of SPAM to make a ring. Place rings into a large skillet and fry until golden brown on both sides (repeat as necessary with SPAM rings), then set aside. Take the remaining scrap pieces of SPAM and finely dice. Place the diced SPAM the same skillet and fry until golden brown, then set aside.

In small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, maple flavor, and remaining 1 tablespoon of buttermilk until well combined and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Remove the chilled dough from the refrigerator. Spray a mini donut pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pipe the batter into the mini donut tin, filling 2/3 of the way full (if using a resealable plastic bag, snip the corner of the bag and pipe batter into the mini donut pans). Place the SPAM rings on top of the dough. Bake for 10 minutes or until the donuts spring back when touched. Allow the donuts to cool slightly and then carefully remove from the pan. Spread the prepared maple glaze over the donuts and top with the diced SPAM for sprinkles. Repeat as necessary with the remaining dough and SPAM rings. Serve the donuts slightly warm.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
