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!
