Your eyes do not deceive you, my darlings. Your prayers have been answered.
Today, I present to you the most decadent and sinfully gratifying breakfast fare that has ever had the honor of being stuffed in my face: homemade maple apple bacon donuts.
Dripping with a luscious maple glaze, coated in crisp crumbles of bacon, and laced with soft and creamy hints of apple, these donuts are sure to tickle your palate in all the right places. Guaranteed.
The first time I heard the myth of maple apple bacon donuts was two years ago. I was getting my MBA and planning a spring break trip to San Francisco with my hubby-to-be. So like any normal dieting bride, I insisted that our itinerary center around eating every piece of food that had ever been featured on Food Network.
We walked around the city to work off all the food, but the donut shop I was hell-bent on visiting was miles away. Not to be discouraged, I set aside my hatred of public transportation and we took the bus to the Mission District. This proved to be the most expensive bus ride ever, as my idiotic fiance fell for the “guess-which-cup-the-ball-is-under” trick that a homeless person played on him, and we lost $100. In retrospect, there may have been a few red flags I missed before marring myself off to a halfwit.
In any case, we arrived at Dynamo Donut - the mothership of the maple apple bacon donut featured on “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” And once we ordered a couple of these babies, plus a salted caramel one, the stupidity fee we paid on the bus didn’t seem so terrible anymore. We also got a steaming cup of coffee to go with them – but just for me, since dimwit hated coffee. And chocolate. And I wonder why our marriage didn’t work.
