Everyone who knows me well knows that my weak point is dougnuts. I knew I should go ahead and bake my own doughnuts at home so I can have those drops from heaven anytime I crave them. I try not to eat too much or keep away as much as I can.
¼ Cup of Warm Water
¼ oz (1.5 teaspoon) of Yeast
¾ of Warm Milk
¼ Stick of Butter (28.5 grams)
2 tbsp of Sugar
2 Cups of Flour
1/4 tsp of Ground Nutmeg
For the Glaze
¼ Stick of Butter
How to Prepare:
Mix the water with the yeast then add the milk.
Add the butter, sugar, ground nutmeg, one egg and mix well, then add the flour and mix until you get a sticky dough.
Cover the pot with a towel and let it rise for an hour.
After an hour, spread lots of flour on a clean surface and roll the dough about 1/2 inch thick.
Cut the doughnuts using a cookie cutter or simply use a coffee cup for the big circle and water bottle cap for the small circle.
This recipe will make you about 16 doughnuts.
After shaping all the doughnuts, let them sit and rise for another 30 minutes until they double in size.
Meanwhile, prepare the glaze by mixing one cup of powdered sugar, 3 tbsp of water, ¼ stick of butter and ¼ tsp of vanilla extract.
Deep fry the doughnuts at 350 degrees oil (make sure to keep it at this temperature by lowering the flame and raising it as needed) It should take about 35 seconds on each side. Only put 3 to 4 dougnuts in the pan at one time so they do not stick.
Glaze the doughnuts and decorate as desired.
