Who knew making this classic donut at home was so easy?


12 Rhodes White Dinner Rolls, dough thawed to room temperature
Oil, for frying

1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar


  1. Place 2 inches of oil in a deep skillet and heat to medium-high heat.
  2. Combine dough. On a sprayed surface, roll out dough into a 16×16 inch square. Slice dough in half one way. Slice into thirds the other way to create 6 donut bars.
  3. Fry each bar on each side for 1 minute or until golden brown on each side. Place on a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
  4. Combine icing ingredients.
  5. Once donuts are cooled, dip the top of each donut in the icing and set aside. Enjoy!

      It’s our version of donuts and many people make them. If you like a more cake-like donut, that is just fine. Just giving people options! Have a nice day!
