For the donuts:

3 ½ cups all-purpose flour

¼ cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 ¼ teaspoons instant yeast

¾ cup whole milk, warmed

¼ cup water, warmed

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the glaze:

2 cups powdered sugar

4-5 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the toppings (optional):

Sprinkles, shredded coconut, chopped nuts, etc.


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and instant yeast.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the warm milk, warm water, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms.

Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic.

Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it doubles in size.

Once the dough has risen, punch it down to release the air. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to a thickness of about ½ inch.

Using a donut cutter or two differently sized round cookie cutters, cut out donut shapes from the dough. Place the donuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Cover the donuts with a kitchen towel and let them rise for another 30-45 minutes, until they are puffy.

While the donuts are rising, preheat the oil in a deep fryer or a large pot to 350°F (175°C).

Carefully lower the donuts into the hot oil, a few at a time, using a slotted spoon or tongs. Fry them for about 1-2 minutes per side until golden brown.

Once fried, transfer the donuts to a wire rack lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.

In a shallow bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until you have a smooth glaze.

Dip each cooled donut into the glaze, allowing any excess glaze to drip off. You can also add toppings like sprinkles, shredded coconut, or chopped nuts at this stage.

Place the glazed donuts back on the wire rack to allow the glaze to set.
