  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 packet) active dry yeast
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

For the Glaze:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a small saucepan, heat the milk until it is warm but not boiling. Pour the warm milk into a large mixing bowl and stir in the granulated sugar until it dissolves. Sprinkle the yeast over the warm milk and let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. Once the yeast is activated, beat in the eggs and melted butter until well combined.
  3. Gradually add the flour and salt to the mixture, stirring until a soft dough forms.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  5. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size.
  6. After the dough has risen, punch it down and roll it out on a floured surface to about 1/2 inch thickness. Use a donut cutter or two differently sized round cookie cutters to cut out donut shapes. Place the cut-out donuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, cover them with a kitchen towel, and let them rise for another 30 minutes.
  7. While the donuts are rising, heat the vegetable oil in a large pot or deep fryer to 350°F (175°C).
  8. Carefully place the risen donuts into the hot oil, frying them for about 1-2 minutes on each side, until they are golden brown and puffed up.
  9. Remove the fried donuts from the oil using a slotted spoon and place them on a wire rack lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
  10. To make the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth. Dip each donut into the glaze, turning to coat both sides, then return them to the wire rack to allow the glaze to set.
  11. Serve the homemade fried donuts warm and enjoy!
