Glazed Donuts

I love warm Krispy Kreme donuts. I always turn in when the sign is on! Well around Beaty's Creek there are no Krispy Kremes, along with many other things. This recipe is light and really tasty. I hate them when they get cold but Ransome just heated them up in the microwave and said they were great! What can I say, I am a purest. I want something fresh or not at all. :) This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek this morning.


2 cups warm milk
1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
1 t salt
2 T yeast
4 eggs
1/2 t nutmeg
7 cups all purpose flour


3 cups powdered sugar
1 t vanilla
1/2 cup milk

Make glaze first and let sit while making the donuts.

Melt butter in warm milk, add 1 t sugar and salt. Let this mixture cool. Add yeast, nutmeg, eggs, and the rest of the sugar. Stir well and add in 1/2 of your flour. Again stir well. Now add in the rest of your flour. Knead for 8 minutes. Let rest for 1 1/2 hours.
Now roll out dough, cut into shapes. Let rise for 1 hour. Heat up oil over medium heat. I cooked mine in about 4 inches of oil. Brown on both sides and drain on paper towels. While still warm glaze your donuts. Eat right away.
