Ingredients

  • Doughnut Batter:

  • 2

    pkgs. regular or rapid rise yeast

  • 1/4

    cup warm water (105−115 degrees)

  • 1 1/2

    cups lukewarm milk (scalded then cooled)

  • 1/2

    cup sugar

  • 1

    tsp. salt

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1/3

    cup shortening

  • 5

    cups all−purpose flour

  • Vegetable oil

  • Creamy Glaze:

  • 1/3

    cup butter

  • 2

    cups powdered sugar

  • 1 1/2

    tsp. vanilla

  • 2-4

    tbsp. hot water

Directions

Get a bowl and mix the warm water with the yeast. Let the yeast dissolve in the water. Add the salt, shortening, milk, sugar, eggs, and 2 cups of flour. At a low pace or speed, mix the ingredients well, as you also want to scrape and fold in the mixture. Do this for 30 seconds. Beat or stir the mixture for another 2 minutes at a medium speed. Continue scraping and folding. Put in the rest of the flour and stir the mixture until it's smooth. Cover the dough mixture and let it rise for about 50 to 60 minutes. You'll want to store it in a warm place. The dough will be ready when the indentation stays in tact when you touch it; meaning if you press the dough with your finger, it will stay pressed down instead of bouncing back up. Spread flour onto a surface, such as a counter top or cutting board. Scoop the dough onto the floured surface and roll the dough around softly so that it's coated. Carefully roll the dough into pieces that is 1/2 thick with a rolling pin (preferably floured so that the dough does not stick to pin). Use a doughnut cutter on each piece, giving them a hole in the middle. Cover the pieces again and allow it to rise for another 30 to 40 minutes. Use a deep fryer at 350 degrees F and pour in the vegetable oil. Using the sides of the deep fryer and a wide spatula, slide the doughnut batter into the oil. Turning them about 1 minute on each side, fry the batter until you get a golden brown color. Remove the doughnuts from the oil in a careful manner and drain the pieces. Be sure to avoid pricking the surface of the doughnuts. Use the creamy glaze and dip the doughnuts into it. Let the doughnuts cool down and then use the chocolate glaze as a spread. Creamy Glaze: Use a small pot or saucepan to heat the butter. Wait until it's melted and then remove it from the heat. 2. Add the vanilla and powdered sugar stir until the mixture is smooth. 3. Pour in the water (one tablespoon at a time) and stir it in until the consistency matches what you want. Chocolate glaze: 1. Use a small pot or saucepan to melt the chocolate and butter over low heat. 2. Remove it from the heat, add the powdered sugar and vanilla, and stir until the mixture is smooth. 3. Pour in the water (one tablespoon at a time) and stir it in until the consistency matches what you want. ENJOY YOUR KRISPY KREME DONUTS!!!!
