The next recipe is the family’s favorite. Whenever the weather gets cold or rains, one of our kids will definitely text or call my mother and kindly ask her if she is going to make some homemade donuts.

Her donuts are very famous in our house and they are very delicious. We have always wanted to eat them! ! (When we are lazy, we use cookie doughnuts as a backup). 😉

What is the difference between store-bought doughnuts and homemade doughnuts? ! You have to try them to know. They are soft and warm, covered with a delicious glaze, and melt in the mouth.

There are several steps to making these doughnuts, but we assure you that they are still very simple.

How to make homemade donuts

Likewise-these doughnuts require yeast, so if you are familiar with baking with yeast, you should have no problem. If you are a novice, we suggest you follow T’s instructions to help you. 😉

Dissolve the yeast in ¾ cup of warm water. Set aside. Heat 2 cups of milk in the microwave for 2-3 minutes.

When the milk is heating up, add the shortening (room temperature) to a large bowl. Pour the hot milk on top and stir until combined. Add salt, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Stir well with a wooden spoon. Add 4 eggs and mix well.

Add the yeast mixture to the batter and mix. Add 2 cups of flour and mix with a wooden spoon. Stir well. Add 2 more cups and mix. Add 2 more cups and mix. At this point, the batter should not be runny. Add another cup of flour and give or take ½ cup.

  • notes: You don’t want your dough to harden. Mix until your dough is smooth.

Sprinkle flour on a clean surface, then pour the batter on top. Knead the batter gently until the surface is not sticky.

  • notes: The dough should be soft but not sticky, and you cannot handle it easily. Put the soft dough into a lightly greased bowl. Cover the bowl and let it rise for 1 to 1.5 hours. After the dough is ready, it should be twice as large.

Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll it out to about 1 inch thick. Cut off the donuts as much as possible. You can save the middle part for the donut hole. Move the donut and hole to a clean surface. Close the lid and let it rise for 1 to 1.5 hours.

Once the donuts and holes are up, fry them in vegetable oil in a large frying pan until golden brown. Make sure to blow these holes because they are just as delicious!

Can you fill doughnuts?

Yes, you can! For this, make sure not to punch holes in the doughnuts. Follow the instructions to make and fry, then insert the filling of your choice (pudding, jelly, Nutella) into the side of the donut after the donut has cooled.

glaze

While frying the donuts, make the donut glaze.

To make the glaze, mix 7 cups of powdered sugar with ⅔ cups of water and 2 teaspoons. vanilla. Immediately after frying, add the doughnut to the glaze, making sure that both sides are covered.

Place it on a plate or wire rack to let the excess glaze drain out.

You can make a variety of different glazes. For example, you can also add a little cocoa powder to this glaze to get a chocolate flavored version.

You can also add any type of sprinkles or toppings. If you want more frosting, we recommend using less milk.

Donut FAQ + Tips

How do I store homemade donuts• If stored improperly, the donuts will dry out. Put the donuts in an airtight container. Store at room temperature for 1-2 days, store in the refrigerator for 5-6 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Can you make donuts in advance? Yes. You can add them to step 5. Then cover and refrigerate until the next day. When ready, let us reach room temperature and then rise for an hour.

Can you bake donuts? Once the donuts have finished rising, you can also bake them. To do this, place it on a lightly greased cookie tray, brush the top with melted butter, and bake for 12-14 minutes, making sure to rotate the donut halfway in the middle.

Can you air fry homemade donuts? Yes, you can, but please keep in mind that the texture of the finished product may be different from that of fried doughnuts. Put a few donuts in the basket, making sure they don’t touch each other.

Turn off the air fryer, set it to 350 degrees, and fry for 5-8 minutes. The length of time depends on the size of your donut. For donut holes, fry for 3-4 minutes.

Like I mentioned, this recipe will take some time, but the donuts are too good to try by yourself. When we say you will fall in love with them, please trust us! !
