Reviews for Maple-Bacon Doughnut Bites
"We really liked these! They were a wonderful salty sweet treat! My boys ate them up in no time! I did add about 1/4 cup extra flour to get them to hold together better."
"I made these for a secret Santa gift and they were gone in minutes! So quick, super easy (except for getting the batter to stay in ball shapes) and WAY DELICIOUS! Highly recommended! Bonus/Side Note - My house smelled like maple syrup, pancakes and bacon for about two days - it was magical! :0)"
