Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches! These easy to make yeast donuts are light and fluffy just like the bakery version and come together fairly quickly! Dress it up with some coffee glaze, bacon crumbles and fill with some coffee flavored ice cream for the ultimate treat.

Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches are my new favorite thing. Have you ever made donuts before? They are surprisingly easy to make! I love the donuts that you can get from the bakery, light and fluffy. And that’s the type that I wanted to be able to make at home. So I knew that I wanted to use yeast in my recipe. So many recipes I came across involved letting the dough sit overnight though. I don’t have the patience for that, or the time, or even the foresight to prepare recipes the day before. I did find a recipe from Alton Brown for yeast doughnuts though, and that’s the recipe that I ended up trying and loving! Of course right? I’m a big Alton Brown fan.
Now it’s possible I dressed up my donuts slightly. In my new adventure of working with Tom Thumb and Albertsons stores…(SO excited!! I’m sure I’ve told you before about my love for my local Tom Thumb market), they challenged me to share a recipe usingtheir Signature Farms® Bacon. Tough work right? C’mon, it’s bacon!! And I decided to pair the Signature Farms bacon with their Signature SELECT™ coffee (because I always have some on hand, I have 4 kids), and Signature SELECT Ice Cream. I went for a Java Chip to complete my breakfast themed treat. Purchasing Signature products not only makes my wallet happy. Their products are the same if not better quality than other brand name products.
All of these ingredients combined led to some pretty amazing fluffy donuts coated with a coffee glaze, topped with bacon crumbles and loaded up with some Java Chip ice cream. Which to me just screams summer time breakfast!
This recipe is definitely versatile though, you can change up the type of glaze you add to your donuts, and the flavor of ice cream used. I made some of the donuts with a strawberry glaze for the kids and gave them a scoop of vanilla. Almost a strawberry and cream donut ice cream sandwich. The possibilities are endless. However my heart (and stomach) will always be drawn to this combo of coffee and bacon!
Now, one of the reasons our family loves the Signature line at Tom Thumb and Albertsons is that it includes more than 4,000 items – from coffee to juice, soup to cereal, fresh produce to fried chicken, and delicious prepared foods (some of my favorites are the soups from the deli section!!) to trusted home staples – all with a 100% money back guarantee.
Signature products are exclusive to and carried by all 18 banners of the Albertsons family of stores, including our local Tom Thumb and Albertsons stores. The Signature brand includes products across six product sectors – Signature SELECT™, Signature Kitchens®, Signature Farms®, Signature Cafe®, Signature Home™, and Signature Care™, including a wide assortment of pantry staples, delicious prepared foods, fresh produce and ingredients that bring delight to any dish.
I buy my Signature products at my local Tom Thumb and Albertsons stores, but you can also find them at all Albertsons grocery stores, which include ACME Markets, Safeway, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Shaw’s, Star Market, United Express, United and Carrs/Safeway. Most likely there is one near you!
