Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

Ingredients:

1 C. Boiling water

3 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. Granulated sugar divided

1 Package of dry active yeast

3 Tbsp. Milk

2 ¾ – 3 ½ C. All purpose flour

1 Large egg

2 Tbsp. Melted butter

Oil for cooking

Glaze ingredients:

4 Tbsp. Hot water

2 C. Powdered sugar

2 tsp. Vanilla extract

⅓ C. Melted butter

How To Make Krispy Kreme Doughnuts:

Place the boiling water, 1 tsp. Sugar, yeast and milk into a bowl, stir and allow to sit for 10 minutes untouched.

And

In a separate bowl, combine the melted butter, 2 ¾ cup of the flour and the remaining sugar.

And

Also

Add the egg and the yeast mixture to the flour mixture, and blend until a dough has formed.

And

Then

 

Add more flour as needed to the mixture until the dough pulls away from the spatula with ease. The dough should still be tacky to the touch at this point.

Place the dough on a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes, adding a bit of flour as needed until the dough is not tacky anymore.

Put the dough into a bowl that has been greased, and cover. Allow the dough to rise in a warm area for an hour.

Make four even sections with the dough, and roll each section into a log shape on a floured surface. Each log of dough should be no more than 2 inches wide.

Cut each log of dough into 15 pieces and roll them into balls.

Place several inches of oil into a deep sided skillet and bring to 350 degrees.

Cook the balls of dough for a few minutes in the oil until golden brown.

Drain on a paper towel lined plate.

Combine the ingredients for the glaze until smooth.

And

Dip the warm donuts into the glaze and allow to sit for several minutes before you serve.
