Buttery Sugar Glazed Doughnuts
makes 26 doughnuts and holes (Print This)
1 cup warm milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 package instant yeast
2 large eggs, beaten
1 1/3 stick melted butter (not hot, just melted)
1 tablespoon Vanilla
4 cup All Purpose Flour
pinch of salt
Oil, for frying
Add sugar to the warm milk (around 110 degrees), and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the yeast, and allow to rest around 10 minutes.
Combine the eggs with the butter and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on medium low speed with the dough hook until well combined. After the 10 minutes have passed on the yeast, add the mixture to the butter/egg combination, and mix for a few minutes. In a separate bowl, combine the flour and salt
Begin adding the flour, one half cup at a time, until it is all incorporated. Use a medium speed for this. Do not over knead, dough will be a bit sticky.
Remove dough from the mixer, and place in a greased bowl. Cover tightly and refrigerate for 4-5 hours, or overnight is you wish.
Roll out the dough to 1/3 to 1/5 inch thickness. Cut with a doughnut cutter (or biscuit cutter)
Place cut doughnuts on parchment, and allow to rise in a warm place until very airy and light.
Heat oil to 350/360, and drop doughnuts in one at a time. Cooking time will vary based on the heat of your oil, but 15 seconds per side worked for me. Remove from oil and pat with paper towels. Continue until all doughnuts are fried.
Dip in glaze. Allow to dry. Dip again, if desired. Serve and enjoy!
