Krispy Kreme Donuts

by 247tasty

Donuts or doughnuts: no matter how you pronounce it, there is no doubt that the American diet strongly enshrines such confections. These fried dough snacks are further glazed or powdered and filled with cream or jelly, of course occasionally. Donuts come in a large variety but maybe none is more omnipresent than the plain glazed donut.

There’s something classic about the glazed, modest donut. We wanted to capture a perfect pie cake which, despite being fried, is not too greasy, and has a sweet but not too sweet glaze which perfectly hardens. It turns out that our frying medium and temperature was critical for not ending up with a greasy mess. The glaze was a decadent mix of powdered sugar, vanilla and only a touch of salt to make the sweetness come true. This donut recipe will take you straight to the feeling you get, the moment you walk into a Krispy Kreme shop, and the neon light “Hot Now” is on, telling you a fresh batch of chewy donuts has just been pulled out of the oven.


2 cups scalded milk
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar, divided
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp yeast
4 eggs (beaten)
1/4 tsp nutmeg
7 cups sifted flour


3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup cold water


1. Mix ingredients together to create the glaze. Melt the butter and add 1 tsp of sugar and salt in hot milk. Enable to cool down. Mix in the yeast, nutmeg, milk, leftover sugar, and 3 cups of flour. Remove the remaining flour 1. (dough gets sticky).

2. Knead for 5 minutes and then allow 1-1 1⁄2 hours to rise. Take the dough out, and cut it into shapes. Don’t re-roll the dough, then allow for 30-45 minutes to rise. Heat oil to 365 ° and fry on each side for 1 – 2 minutes, or until crispy. The first throw in the holes of the doughnut, let those cook and then cook the donuts. Let them cool down on a paper towel – helps to adhere to the glaze. Plunge into the moist glaze.
