What’s better than homemade doughnuts?!
That’s right, nothing! I’ve always wanted to make doughnuts but didn’t because
I thought they seemed way harder to do at home. That could not be farther from the truth.
This recipe was a piece of cake!… I mean doughnut ☺️
1 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1/3 cup granulated Sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour
2 cups confectioners sugar (sifted)
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
With the mixer combine the yeast, milk, and sugar. Cover bowl with kitchen towel for 5 minutes.
Add in the butter, eggs, vanilla, salt, nutmeg, and 2 cups of the flour. Slowly add in 2 extra cups of flour scraping down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. You want dough to be somewhat sticky.
Knead the dough for about 2 minutes.
Grease the sides of a large bowl with oil. Place ball of dough inside and cover again with kitchen towel for 2 hours.
Punch dough several times to get any air bubbles out. Roll it out on flour surface to about 1/2 inch thickness.
Use this doughnut cutter and place the doughnut holes on a baking sheet. Keep dough under kitchen towel while oil is heating.
Pour oil in dutch oven. Heat until oil is 375°.
Mix all the glaze ingredients together while oil is heating as well.
Drop doughnuts into the oil. Cook each side of doughnut about 30 seconds- 1 minute. Flipping them with tongs.
Once done, plop them in the glaze mixture. (you’ll want to do this while they’re still very hot).
Put on drying rack to cool.
Eat whenever your heart desires. Generally it takes about half hour for glaze to set in. But who can wait that long?!
Like I said, this recipe is very easy to make.
It is a little time consuming so make sure you don’t make them an hour before you need them.
