that provided the recipe for cinnamon doughnuts. well, this year i wanted to relive my when we were kids, we would make doughnuts with our parents on halloween. i think it was my great grandma juliachildhood memories by making doughnuts on halloween (that and i was a halloween hater this year) but usually people hate on cake doughnuts so, i thought i'd try a yeast recipe. i found this one on the food network that turned out pretty well. i would not put in nutmeg the next time and i added more flour. i found another recipe online that is supposedly the krispy kreme recipe and i used the glaze part of it for these doughnuts.
2 cups scalded milk
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar, divided
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons yeast
4 eggs (beaten)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
7 cups sifted flour
3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup cold water
Melt butter in hot milk, add 1 tsp sugar and salt. Allow to cool.
Beat in yeast, nutmeg, eggs, remaining sugar, and 3 cups flour.
Add rest of flour (dough will be sticky).
Knead for 5 minutes then allow to rise for 1-1 1/2 hours.
Roll out dough, cut into shapes.
Do not re-roll dough, then allow to rise for 30-45 minutes.
Heat oil to 365° and fry 1 - 2 minutes on each side or until brown. Toss in the doughnut holes first, let those cook, and then proceed to cooking the donuts.
Let them cool on a paper towel - helps get the glaze to stick.
Dip in warm glaze.
i'd be interested in trying this recipe for the doughnut part when i have more time and see if it really is like the krispykremes. but i do have to say, next doughnut party, people are getting great grandma julia's recipe cinnamon doughnuts whether they like it or not.
