How to Make Glazed Raised Donuts


  • 1Put warm water (not hot, it will kill yeast) in bowl/cup and pour in the yeast with 1 tsp of sugar.
  • 2While yeast is activating place milk in a microwave safe dish and scald.
  • 3Add butter to the milk and let it melt completely, pretty much cooling it down some, but not completely.
  • 4Place the sugar and salt in mixing bowl.
  • 5Pour milk and butter mixture over the sugar and salt, stirring until dissolved.
  • 6Add one cup of the flour.
  • 7Add eggs
  • 8Add activated yeast
  • 9Mix until this mixture is smooth.
  • 10Add remaining flour and mix until dough comes away from sides, and is soft and knead-able.
  • 11Pour out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic.
  • 12Place dough into a lightly sprayed (non stick spray) bowl, let sit for 2-3 hours and is doubled in size or larger.
  • 13This is 1.5 hours after sitting.
  • 14This is 3 hours later.
  • 15Put dough on a lightly floured surface and flour your rolling pin and roll it about a half inch to an inch thick
  • 16Next cut out the donuts and the holes. I used a pan holder I have for cutting and a piping tool attachment for the donut hole.
  • 17Let the donuts sit for 30 minutes or so.
  • 18Then fry in canola oil (325 degrees - 350 degrees). Honestly just watch them for the first try and time it. I would say a minute maybe on each side give or take. You judge how dark or light, we enjoyed all tones mmmmmmm
  • 19Place your donuts on a cooling rack over a pan.
  • 20Mix all ingredients of glaze in a bowl, stir until smooth.
  • 21I dipped each donut in glaze and flipped replaced it on the cooling rack.
  • 22These donuts are super yummy
  • 23Just a couple more pictures to show you how good they came out.
