How To Make glazed raised donuts

  • 1
    Put warm water (not hot, it will kill yeast) in bowl/cup and pour in the yeast with 1 tsp of sugar.
  • 2
    While yeast is activating place milk in a microwave safe dish and scald.
  • 3
    Add butter to the milk and let it melt completely, pretty much cooling it down some, but not completely.
  • 4
    Place the sugar and salt in mixing bowl.
  • 5
    Pour milk and butter mixture over the sugar and salt, stirring until dissolved.
  • 6
    Add one cup of the flour.
  • 7
    Add eggs
  • 8
    Add activated yeast
  • 9
    Mix until this mixture is smooth.
  • 10
    Add remaining flour and mix until dough comes away from sides, and is soft and knead-able.
  • 11
    Pour out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic.
  • 12
    Place dough into a lightly sprayed (non stick spray) bowl, let sit for 2-3 hours and is doubled in size or larger.
  • 13
    This is 1.5 hours after sitting.
  • 14
    This is 3 hours later.
  • 15
    Put dough on a lightly floured surface and flour your rolling pin and roll it about a half inch to an inch thick
  • 16
    Next 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.
  • 17
    Let the donuts sit for 30 minutes or so.
  • 18
    Then 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
  • 19
    Place your donuts on a cooling rack over a pan.
  • 20
    Mix all ingredients of glaze in a bowl, stir until smooth.
  • 21
    I dipped each donut in glaze and flipped replaced it on the cooling rack.
  • 22
    These donuts are super yummy
