Sugar glazed doughnuts

8 servings
2 hours
15 min


Number of serving: 8
1/4 cup warm water (100 degrees temperature)

1/2 package (1 + 1/8 tsp) active dry yeast

2 cups all purpose flour

1 egg

3/4 cup warm milk (100 degrees temperature)

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp butter or margarine (at room temperature)

For Sugar Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar

3 tbsp milk (use water for transparent glaze)

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

2 tbsp softened butter


  • 1. In the bowl of your electric mixer, add 1/4 cup of warm water, 2 tbsp sugar and yeast. Let it sit for 10 minutes. The water will become frothy and that ensures that yeast is active.
    2. Stir in the lightly beaten egg, butter and warm milk.
    3. Add the all purpose flour and knead using the spiral dough hook. Knead until the dough starts to clean the sides of the bowl and is very soft and elastic.
    4. Add the dough to a greased bowl, cover and leave for 1 hour or until dough is doubled in bulk.
    5. Punch down the dough and roll it to a large rectangle on a floured surface. Using doughnut cutter or cookie cutter or the bottle lids (that's what I used) cut the doughnut rounds and holes (using smaller sauce bottle cover if you are using lids)
    6. Collect the scraps, roll it out again and cut more doughnut rounds until all of the dough is used up. I ended up with 14 doughnuts. Leave them again for 30 minutes to puff up.
    7. Heat oil in a pan. You need about 1/2 inch of oil not much. Fry doughnuts until light and evenly browned from both sides. Fry all of them and keep on a paper towel to remove excess oil.

    For Glaze
    1. Put all the ingredients together in a bowl and mix for about 3-4 minutes. It will be smooth and have a shiny glaze.

    Now dip doughnuts in the glaze from both sides and keep in a tray. The sugar syrup will settle down in a few minutes. Enjoy the super soft, super delicious and super easy (Too much super? :) ) SUPER doughnuts!! :D
