Donuts

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup sugar

2 1/4 cup flour (plus extra if needed later)

Place the yeast in the water and let it rest for 10 minutes until foamy. InΒ  your stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine the yeast mixture, milk, egg, butter, and sugar and beat until combined. Next add in the flour in parts and continue mixing. Now switch from paddle to hook attachment and knead, adding a bit of flour until the dough is smooth, but still a bit sticky is okay. Next you’ll want to lightly oil a large bowl and place the dough in it to rise, covered in a warm place until it doubles in size ( 1-2 hours).

On a floured surface roll out the dough to 1/2 inch thick and cut out circles, as well as the hole in the middle. (Save the holes for donut holes – yum!) Let the donuts rise again for 30 minutes or so. Meanwhile make your glaze (see below).

To fry them – place 1-2 cups oil in a heavy skillet, depending on the size of your skillet, and allow to heat to 350F, or test by throwing in a small piece of dough and seeing if it fries properly – it should bubble – this means it is ready.Β Be sure toΒ never leave your oil alone, and do no let it overheat. Fry your donuts and holes until golden brown on both sides – happens pretty quickly! Remove and place on paper towels to get rid of excess oil.
