Glazed Donut Recipe: 30 Reasons to Fail Your Diet Plan

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 137

For this glazed donut recipe, you'll need:

  • Yeast - four tablespoons
  • Water - a quarter cup, lukewarm
  • Milk - one cup, lukewarm
  • Confectioners' sugar - three tablespoons
  • Butter - three and a half ounces, melted
  • Flour - four and a half cups
  • Eggs - three
  • Vegetable oil - appropriate amount for frying

This recipe makes about 30 donuts. If you want to make more (or less), scale the ingredients up (or down) accordingly.

How to make glazed donuts:

  1. As with most donut recipes, the first step is to form the dough. Combine the active dry yeast, warm milk, water, and a tablespoon of sugar in a bowl. You can set this aside for ten minutes or so. The ingredients in the bowl will start to foam because of the active yeast.
  2. Mix in the rest of the sugar, and add the eggs, butter, and flour to the bowl. When the ingredients are properly mixed, the dough should have a thick, sticky consistency.
  3. Next, flour a countertop or other flat surface and knead the dough.
  4. Once the dough has been kneaded, transfer it to a lightly-oiled bowl. Cover the bowl loosely with a light plastic wrap or tea towel. Set aside for 30 to 45 minutes to proof. The dough should double in size.
  5. Knead the dough again. For this glazed donut recipe, the dough should have an elastic consistency. You can check the consistency by applying a little pressure to the dough.
  6. Roll the dough out on a floured flat surface so it's about an inch in thickness. Use a cookie-cutter or donut-cutter to form the donut shapes.
  7. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper and place the cut-out donut shapes onto the tray. Cover the tray with plastic wrap or tea towel in room temperature for about half an hour. This will allow the donuts to rise.
  8. In a deep saucepan, heat vegetable oil over medium to low heat. The optimal temperature range is from 325 to 360 Fahrenheit. You can use a thermometer to ensure the oil is kept within this range.
  9. Lower the donuts onto the pan (two at a time) and fry the donuts for about a minute on each side. The donuts should be golden-brown when you remove them from the pan.
  10. Place the cooked donuts onto paper towels to drain. You've just made a batch of delicious homemade donuts from scratch, using a simple glazed donut recipe. All you need to do now is top it off with a layer of decadent chocolate glaze.

To make the chocolate glaze for donuts you will need:

  • Chocolates - four ounces
  • Corn syrup - one tablespoon
  • Unsalted butter - half cup
  • Whole milk - quarter cup, lukewarm
  • Confectioners' sugar - two cups
  • Vanilla extract - two teaspoons

How to make the donut glaze:

  1. Sift the confectioners' sugar using a mesh sieve, and set aside.
  2. Mix the vanilla extract, milk, corn syrup, and butter in a saucepan. Heat the mixture over medium heat until the butter melts.
  3. Stir in the chocolate and reduce the heat to low. Whisk in the chocolate until it has melted.
  4. Take the saucepan off the stove and stir in the confectioners' sugar. Whisk the mixture until it is smooth.
  5. Finally, turn off heat, add the confectioners' sugar, and whisk until smooth. The glaze is now ready for the donuts. For best results, the donuts should be dipped into the glaze right away.
  6. Once all of the donuts have been dipped into the glaze, place them on a wire rack. They should be set aside and left alone for about half an hour to cool.

Now you know how to make glazed donuts. It's not that hard if you have a simple and easy-to-follow glazed donut recipe to guide you in the kitchen.
