If there’s one thing people who don’t like dessert will still eat, its donuts. They’re ideal for parties, celebrations, visits and even to bring for your Tinder date who you really like (without making the whole thing look creepy). Also, they’re perfect for your cute Instagram pictures when your feed gets boring or saturated.
Recently, with food blogging and baking websites on the rise, donuts have been subject to experimentations of all sorts. From pickled donuts and buffalo donuts (whatever they are) to Mojito donuts, we’ve seen some wild toppings and flavors but not all is lost.
Between the grilled cheese donuts and chicken skin donuts, there have been some wonderful toppings that we’ve discovered over the years.
Here are our top picks for donut toppings!
Maple glaze and bacon go so well together and that’s why this is a must-try at home. Bake the classic doughnut with a bit of sugar and icing and top it up with bacon. Don’t go all-out but a little bit of cooked and diced bacon on the top will add the right balance between sweet and salty flavors, as well as crunchy and soft textures.
This is a unique and amazing combination and we absolutely love it! You can use mixed berries to make the icing, which will take no more than 15–20 minutes to make.
If you’re worried about berry seeds, strain the sauce after cooking it to get a smooth and perfectly mix-colored topping. You can also use chunks of berries to add a flavor and make it more visually appealing.
Chocolate Glazed Almond Topping
When you’re looking to bake light flavored donuts for family and especially children, this is the perfect topping. You can either use almond flour with maple syrup to make a glaze or use chocolate glaze with almond sprinkles on the tops.
A home-made doughnut topped with your favorite flavor ice cream is the stuff of heaven. Bake simple glazed donuts and once you’re ready to serve, add a scoop of ice cream combined with sprinkles or a cherry on the top.
