These Maple Bars are so easy and delicious! I never thought frying donuts would be so simple! These classic, homemade Maple Long Johns make the perfect breakfast treat. Your family will thank you for this warm, fresh version of a classic donut with a homemade maple glaze!
Servings 16 donuts
- 2 tubes 16.3 oz each refrigerated biscuits
- Vegetable oil for frying enough for 2 inches deep in pan
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
- 2 teaspoons maple extract
- 2 cups powdered sugar
Separate the biscuits and flatten and stretch into a log shape.
Heat hot oil in a pan on the stove. Working in batches, fry the biscuits, about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Remove and drain on paper towels.
Add butter, brown sugar and milk to a sauce pan and heat on medium low heat, stirring constantly until butter is melted and sugar is no longer grainy.
Remove from heat and stir in corn syrup and maple extract.
Whisk in powdered sugar until blended smooth. Icing will begin to harden, but it should be fine to dunk.
Dredge the top of each bar into the icing and flip over onto a flat surface for icing to firm up. Repeat until all bars are covered. Serve immediately.
Store any leftover maple bars loosely covered at room temperature. These are best when eaten within 24 hours of making.
