Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place warm water in large, warm bowl. Sprinkle in yeast; stir until dissolved.
  • Add warm milk, sugar, butter, salt and 1 1/2 cups flour; blend well. Stir in eggs and enough remaining flour to make soft dough.
  • Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Remove dough to lightly floured surface; roll to 1/2-inch thickness.
  • Cut into shapes using a 2 1/2-inch doughnut cutter. Reroll extra pieces of dough; cut into shapes.
  • Place on two greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Pour oil into large, heavy saucepan to 1-inch depth. Heat to 375ºF. (or use your deep fryer)
  • Handle doughnuts as little as possible to prevent falling.
  • Place two or three doughnuts in oil. Cook about 1 minute on each side, until golden brown.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Repeat with remaining doughnuts.
  • Dip warm doughnuts into Vanilla Glaze, or let doughnuts cool, then spread with Chocolate Glaze.
  • Drain on rack set over waxed paper.
  • Makes about 20 doughnuts.
