Krispy Kreme Raised Yeast Doughnuts Delish!

Cherie Szilvagyi


I was searching on this site for the Krispy Kreme original recipe so I could PinchIt! and couldn't find the right recipe. You can tell the original recipe because it has nutmeg in the recipe. I have also included the glaze recipe that dries and crackles and their marshmallow creme recipe.

How to Make Krispy Kreme Raised Yeast Doughnuts Delish!


  1. Scald Milk...add butter, 1 tsp. sugar, and salt ......... cool so you don't kill the yeast.
  2. Beat warm milk mixture, yeast, nutmeg, eggs, remaining sugar, 3 c. flour in mixer until smooth. Add remaining flour.
  3. Knead 5 min then cover and let rise for 1-1 1/2 hours or until double.
  4. Roll out dough about 1/2 inch thick or just under 1/2 inch, then cut into shape.
  5. Allow cut doughnuts to rise another 30-45 min.
  6. Fry 1-2 min. each side at 365 F. (I used brand new lard to fry them) Once golden brown on one side, turn and cook other side till golden brown. Place on paper towel to drain grease. Once cooled for a few min dip in Glaze and set on cooling rack or plate to cool.
    Mix the ingredients together and whip till combined and smooth. Same directions for both glaze and marshmallow creme.
