How to Make Homemade Glazed Doughnuts

Best Ingredients to Use for Homemade Doughnuts

We’re using a straightforward dough for today’s doughnuts. You only need a few ingredients to begin

Milk: Liquid activates the yeast. Whole milk is a must for the most tender dough– or you can try buttermilk. 

Yeast: You can use active dry yeast or instant yeast. If using an instant yeast, your rise time will be a little shorter

Sugar: Sugar sweetens the doughnuts, but it also feeds the yeast, increases its activity, and tenderizes the dough.

Eggs: Eggs provide structure and flavor.

Butter: Melted butter promises enhanced flavor.

Salt & Vanilla Extract: Both add flavor. Try using homemade vanilla extract.

Nutmeg: A little nutmeg is the secret ingredient to that cozy, comforting bakery taste. If you’ve ever made my chocolate chip muffins, you know it adds a delicious pop of flavor!
