Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Donuts

Today is National Doughnuts Day!!! Every first Friday of June each year, succeeding the Doughnut Day event created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the men and women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. The holiday celebrates the doughnut (a.k.a. “donut”) – an edible, torus-shaped piece of dough which is deep-fried and sweetened. Many American doughnut stores offer free doughnuts on National Doughnut Day.

And since there’s no way I can make it to the U.S. of A. to enjoy the celebration, I’m making my own version of the Donuts that I really love…

Now on with the cooking…

Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Donuts

Prep. time: 2 hours

Frying time: 2 minutes

Deep Fryer Temp. : 180′C

Difficulty: Easy

Makes; 20 pcs. Donuts & 20 pcs. Donutholes

Good for 12 crew

You will need;

500 grms. all purpose flour/bread flour

1 Tbsp. instant yeast

1/4 Tbsp. (3/4 tsp.) fine salt

6 Tbsp. sugar white granulated

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened {kept at room temperature for an hour or softened inside the microwave for few seconds.}

2 pcs. med. size (50grms/each) fresh eggs

3/4 cup water, room temperature{a little more or less}

*For frying:

Deep Fryer w/ built in thermostat.{or a deep pan w/ candy thermometer}

a lot of clean/clear vegetable oil{amount will defend on the size of your deep pan}

*For the Glazed:

1/4 cup (60 grms.) unsalted butter

1.5 cup powdered sugar(confectioner/icing sugar), sifted.

1/2 cup evaporated milk

1/2 tsp. vanilla powder/liquid

{Optional} 1/2 tsp. lemon juice, this will balance the intense sweetness of the glaze and add a gloss to it.


Place flour, yeast, salt and sugar in the dough mixer, run on slow speed for a minute to blend ingredients. Add the softened butter, eggs and water. Increase speed to medium-high and knead the mixture for 10-12 minutes or until smooth and elastic. A good mixture will have blisters on the dough surface.

Either brush the bowl or rub the dough surface with vegetable oil and place it back into the bowl, cover with plastic film wrap or a damp cloth and let it rise for 1-2 hours or until double in bulk. Punch down dough.
[Here’s how I do it] *Sweet Dough Recipe on the link is double in amount.

Prepare large tray and cover it with flour. Place sweet dough on a floured working table, use rolling pin to flatten dough. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness {or slightly thicker than a pencil/pen}. Use donut cutter to cut-out dough. Do not discard leftover/scrap dough from cut-out donuts, combine and repeat procedure to cut more donuts from it. Transfer donuts to the floured tray and let the donuts proof at warm area {32-38′C}. Let the donuts rise for 30-60 minutes.

Preheat oil on deep fryer to 180′C and test fry a donutholes, it should be golden brown on one side in less than a minute. Turnover to cook other side. Fry the remaining donuts in batches, use bamboo skewer/chop stick to handle donuts while frying. Donutholes cooks faster than donuts, fry them separately. Drain excess oil on kitchen paper towels. Arrange donuts/donutholes on tray, set aside while preparing the glazing.

Place the butter in a non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat. Add the sifted powdered sugar, stir with spiral whisk until large crumb is formed. Pour in the evaporated milk. Add vanilla and squeeze 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice. Stir until sugar is dissolved and the glazed is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon.

While the glazing is still hot, dip one side of the donuts/donutholes. Let the excess glazing drip-off before transfering it on a serving dish, best served freshly made.

Serve and enjoy it with your favourite blend of coffee !!!
