Fried Donut Recipe

A donut (doughnut?) even with only a classic glaze on top is such a guilty pleasure. That sugary buttery milky shiny glaze over that soft perfectly fried dough is so tempting, you have to close your eyes and walk in the opposite direction to stop yourself from getting a single bite. Yeah, yeah, it's almost an impossible feat especially if you've been dieting. If on the unfortunate turn of events you got tempted, just forget about counting the calories and simply indulge, allowing yourself to savor the pleasure of every bite.

It's funny really because compared to the time it takes for these donuts to be made, consuming these seem to take only about a blink of an eye. Yes, you may think I'm exaggerating here because I do, but really the making of these donuts is not quick if you ask me, the waiting for the dough to rise is what's going to take long. Even so, you would still make these doughnuts again and again and again. Now that I have mentally prepared you for what's at hand, I believe it's time for us to begin this fried Donut Recipe. I actually got the base recipe from this site and made little substitutions and additions here and there :).

1. Melt shortening in the milk using low heat. Let cool until just a bit warm, not hot.

2. Mix yeast in the warm water(warm not hot, hot water kills the yeast). Leave for 5 to 10 minutes.

3. Transfer the milk mixture in a bowl. Add sugar and salt and dissolve completely.

4. Add 1 cup flour, eggs and the yeast mixture. Stir till fully incorporated.

5.  Add the rest of the flour and mix. Once flour almost gets fully mixed, knead using dough hook until the batter starts to leave the sides of the bowl. Transfer in a lightly floured surface.

6. Knead until smooth and elastic. Lightly oil the bowl and put the dough in.

7. Cover using a cloth or plastic wrap and let rise for about an hour until double.

8. Transfer the dough in a floured surface and flatten to about half an inch. Using a donut cutter or cookie cutter or anything circle, cut out donuts. Remove the rest of the dough except the circles formed. I used my baby's milk plastic container, it's mouth is about 2.75" diameter.

For the excess dough, you may form it into a ball again and flatten it then do the cutting of the circles again.

9. Cut out the center circle using a doughnut cutter or a small cookie cutter or in my case a small medicine measuring cup about 1" diameter.

10. Cover the donuts and let rise again for about 30 minutes.

11. You may form the excess dough into any shape you want and allow to rise also.

12. These donuts have risen again and ready for frying.

13. Meantime prepare your glaze. In a bowl, mix sugar and melted butter. Add vanilla extract.

14. Add evaporated milk until you achieve your desired consistency.

15. In a pan, fry donuts until light brown using medium heat. Invert using chopstick or the rounded handle of big spoon.

16. Place donuts over a paper towel for the excess oil to be absorbed.

17. Dip one side of the donuts in the glaze. Allow the donuts' glaze to dry and set.

18.  After all the hard work, your donuts are now ready to be served. Enjoy! :)

Your donuts look so delicious. Ive long wanted to try making one but the tedious process is keeping me. Im a big fan of krispy kreme classic glazed donuts. And yours looks close to it.
