The Wonut (Waffle Donut)

Two breakfast favorites get combined in these decadent waffle donuts! You can top them with all kinds of goodies, but our favorites include cookie butter, chocolate hazelnut spread, and a powdered sugar glaze.

Ingredients

For the waffles

2
cups Bisquick™ Original baking mix
1 1/4
cups milk
1/4
cup vegetable oil
2
eggs

For frying

Vegetable oil

For glaze

1
cup powdered sugar
3
tablespoons milk

For toppings (optional)

Frosting, hazelnut spread, cookie butter, sprinkles, cereal, pretzels

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the waffle iron according to manufacturer instructions. Meanwhile, fill a large deep skillet with 2 inches of vegetable oil and heat to 375ºF.
  • 2 In a large bowl, combine the Bisquick, milk, 1/4-cup vegetable oil, and eggs. Whisk until just combined.
  • 3 Pour batter into your waffle maker and cook as directed. Remove from the waffle iron to a wire rack.
  • 4 Use the smallest biscuit cutter you have (or a sharp knife) to cut small holes out of the centers of some or all of your waffles.
  • 5 Place the waffles one at a time into the hot oil and fry just until golden brown, about 30 seconds per side. The waffles are already cooked, so frying goes quick – keep a close eye on them or they'll burn.
  • 6 Remove from the oil to a paper towel-lined plate and let the grease drain.
  • 7 Return the fried waffles to the cooling rack and top with the toppings of your choice – you can glaze them, frost them, cover them with sprinkles, nuts, etc.
  • 8 To make glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk. Dunk some of the wonuts into the glaze.
  • 9 Top the rest of the wonuts with any topping you prefer. Some topping ideas are cake frosting, chocolate hazelnut spread, cookie butter, sprinkles, pretzels and cereal.

Step By Step  

It's a waffle. It's a donut. No, wait ... it's a wonut!

As prepared by Buns in my Oven,

You don't have to go to Chicago to get your wonut fix. You can easily make them right at home. 

I have a confession to make. You ready?

Frying. It’s my jam. I love to fry food and I love to eat fried food.

Soooo, I fried some waffles. I mean, what? There is totally and completely nothing at all wrong with that. In fact, fried waffles are taking the world by storm.

You’ve heard of the wonut, right? Well, that’s pretty much just a fried waffle topped with all kinds of delicious donut-y things.

You guys want these in your face, don’t you?

 

The Wonut

First we whip up some easy peasy waffle batter. I used Bisquick and followed the directions on the box. I also made a version using half Bisquick and half dry yellow cake mix. The cake ones were tasty just plain, but I found them too sweet with a bunch of sugary toppings.

 

The Wonut

Next you just make your waffles according to your waffle iron’s directions. Plop the cooked waffles right on a wire rack to chill for a bit. As soon as you can touch them without burning your fingers, start cutting out the donut hole. I used a knife to cut out the center square. They’re so cute I could barely stand it!

Meanwhile, heat up a pot of oil.

Fry your waffles. The waffles are already cooked, so we’re just crisping them up. They’ll only need about 30 seconds per side.

 

The Wonut

Drain your wonuts on a paper towel-lined plate until cool enough to handle.

Aaaaaand, start drizzling on all manner of toppings.

 

The Wonut

To make a traditional donut glaze, whisk together some milk and powdered sugar. Easy as pie.

 

The Wonut

Dunk your wonuts right in the glaze to coat and then sprinkle them with ... well, sprinkles.

 

The Wonut

Chocolate hazelnut spread was a favorite choice amongst my kids. Especially because I topped it with crushed pretzels. Sweet and salty is the way to go!

 

The Wonut

You can’t beat a classic. Chocolate frosting + sprinkles wins at life every time.

 

The Wonut

Grab a box of cereal. Frost your donut with Betty Crocker Fluffy White Frosting. Sprinkle on some Fruity Cheerios.

 

The Wonut

It’s not a donut until you’ve slathered it with peanut butter and added some Cocoa Puffs for a chocolatey crunch.

 

The Wonut

Chocolate frosting and a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping makes me pretty happy. Sprinkle on some salt if you’re feeling crazy.

My personal favorite was the cookie butter. I love cookie butter and it’s the perfect compliment to a wonut. Truth.

 

The Wonut

Go forth and fry your waffles! Then top them with every ridiculous thing you can think of.

Tips  

For a birthday cake-flavored wonut, swap half of the Bisquick with dry yellow cake mix! They'll fry up just the same, but be careful when topping them as they're much sweeter than the original version.
