I needed to do something special for a holiday brunch, and had run out of ideas.  I happened upon a old recipe I had for a copycat Krispy Kreme style donut and figured I would give it a shot.  They were easy to make and made a lot for the money.  I honestly don’t remember the source for the recipe, but they deserve the credit in this.  The donuts were light, airy and nearly melted in your mouth.  For the frosting it is just a very thick confectioner sugar frosting drizzled on the donuts.

MYO Krispy Kreme Donuts

2 cups scalded milk.

1/2 cup butter

2/3 cup sugar

1 tsp salt

2 tbsp active yeast

4 eggs (beaten)

1/4 tsp nutmeg

7 cups flour

Melt butter in milk and add salt and 1 tsp sugar.  Let cool to room temperature.

Beat in yeast, eggs, nutmeg, rest of sugar, and 3 cups flour to milk/butter mixture.

Add rest of flour (it will be a sticky batter, it’s ok.)

Knead for 5 minutes and let rise for 1 1/2 hours.

Roll out dough, cut into shapes using either a donut cutter or a glass + a pop bottle lid to make center hole.

Let rise 40 minutes.

Fry in 365 degree oil for 1-2 minutes per side.   (Cook donut holes first, then donuts.)

Let cool on paper towel before glazing.


(this is basics, add as you need for more, also add more liquid if wishing thinner, more sugar if thicker)

1 cup confectioners sugar

2 tbsp milk or water

1/4 tsp vanilla, lemon, or other extract flavor.
