Krispy Kreme Doughnuts (Posted by MrsPpmrxky)

Krispy Kreme-like Doughnuts

Posted by MrsPpmrxky at Alfabet Soup in Recipes & Cooking Tips

2 pkg yeast
1/4 cup warm water (105-115 degrees)
1 1/2 cup lukewarm milk (scalded, then cooled)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/3 cup shortening
5 cup all-purpose flour

Vegetable oil Dissolve yeast in warm water in 2 1/2-quart bowl. Add milk, salt, eggs, shortening and 2 cups flour. Beat on low speed scraping bowl constantly, 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed scraping bowl occasionally, 2 minutes. Stir in remaining flour until smooth. Cover and let rise in warm place, until double, 50-60 minutes. (Dough is ready when indentation remains when touched.) Turn dough onto floured surface; roll around lightly to coat with flour. Gently roll dough 1/2-inch thick with floured rolling pin. Cut with floured doughnut cutter. Cover and let rise until double, 30-40 minutes. Heat vegetable oil in deep fryer to 350 degrees. Slide doughnuts into hot oil with wide spatula. Turn doughnuts as they rise to the surface. Fry until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side. Remove carefully from oil (do not prick surface); drain. Dip the doughnuts into creamy glaze set on rack then when slightly cooled spread chocolate glaze on top. Can dip in sprinkles or other toppings after chocolate if desired.

Creamy Glaze
1/3 cup butter 2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 4-6 tablespoons hot water
Heat butter until melted. Remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar and
vanilla until smooth. Stir in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.

Chocolate glaze
1/3 cup butter 2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
4-6 tbsp. hot water
4-oz milk chocolate or semi-sweet chips
Heat butter and chocolate over low heat until chocolate is melted; remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Stir in water 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.

"Krispy Kreme" Donuts

1. Open and separate: 1 roll of plain refrigerated biscuit dough (do not use the flaky or buttermilk-flavored varieties)

2. Use an apple corer or other utensil to make a hole in the middle of the dough.

3. Set holes aside.

4. Heat in a deep fryer or large skillet: canola oil

5. Heat oil to 275 - 300 degrees (F).

6. When oil is hot, add dough, about 5 biscuits at a time.

7. Fry until lightly browned, turning once.

8. Drain on paper towels.

9. Repeat with remaining biscuits, and also with doughnut "holes."

10. For topping, mix together:

1 T. cinnamon
1 T. sugar

11. Sprinkle on hot doughnuts.

Note: You can also spread frosting on doughnuts for a glazed topping, or just leave them "plain jane."
