We never thought we’d ever have a desire to make donuts, but then we tried the Cappuccino Dulce de Leche Brioche Donut recipe from Monique at Peaches to Peach Blog and we fell in love! So we took Monique’s brioche donut dough recipe and added our Whiskey Maple buttercream filling and almost died from the amazingly delicious combo! And what’s better than a delicious cream filled donut with delicious maple flavors and a touch boozy from the addition of Tennessee Whiskey? You must try these Whiskey Maple Brioche Donuts.
Why make donuts at home?
Making donuts at home is actually pretty simple, it just takes a little bit more time, so plan this in advance. Don’t expect to whip these out the morning you are planning a large brunch. Like any delicious bread, they need time to proof and develop flavor to meet their full potential. But making donuts at home allows you to be in complete control of everything and make them completely to your liking! Maybe you have picky eaters in the house and need a variety of fillings, well that’s totally easy to do with these. You can have your guest get creative and combine fillings with a “create your own” fun activity. It’s fun for everyone!
What Whiskey should I use?
We love a good smooth Tennessee Whiskey, such as Jack Daniels, in these. But we have made them with a variety of whiskey types as well as Bourbon. They are all very good, so choose your poison. The whiskey flavor in these Brioche Donuts is not strong at all, so you don’t need to worry about them being too intense if you are not a huge Whiskey fan. I guarantee you will love the flavor of these!
So what are you waiting for??? Add these to your list for next weekend and enjoy one of the best treats in life – sugar covered and filled carbs!
