Simple Glazed Donut Recipe
Time to make the Donuts 🍩

1 c. whole milk
1/4 c. plus 1 tsp. granulated sugar, divided
1 packet (or 2 1/4 tsp.) active dry yeast
4 c. all-purpose flour, plus more if needed
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
6 tbsp. melted butter
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Canola or vegetable oil, for frying
1/4 c. whole milk
2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract


Grease a large bowl with cooking spray and set aside. In a small, microwave-safe bowl or glass measuring cup, add milk. Microwave until lukewarm, 40 seconds. Add a teaspoon of sugar and stir to dissolve, then sprinkle over yeast and let sit until frothy, about 8 minutes.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and salt. In a large bowl, whisk together remaining sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla with a wooden spoon. Pour in yeast mixture, mix to combine, then add in dry ingredients, stirring with a wooden spoon until a shaggy dough forms. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead until elastic and only slightly tacky, adding more flour a teaspoon at a time if needed, about 5 minutes.
Form into a tight ball then place dough in oiled bowl and cover with a clean dish towel. Let dough rise in a warm spot in your kitchen until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment. Punch down dough, then turn onto a lightly floured work surface and roll out into a ½” thick rectangle. Using a doughnut cutter or 3” and 1” biscuit cutters, punch out your doughnuts. Re-knead scraps together and punch out as well. Place doughnuts and holes onto baking sheets, cover with dish towel, and let rise again, about 40 minutes more.
Make glaze: In a large bowl, whisk together milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Set aside.
Line a large baking sheet with paper towels. In a large dutch oven over medium heat, heat 2” oil to 350Β°. Cook doughnuts, in batches, until deeply golden on both sides, about 1 minute per side. Holes will cook even faster!
Transfer doughnuts to cooling rack or baking sheet with paper towel to drain and cool slightly. Dip into glaze, let sit for a while (or eat immediately!).
