Your Favourite Glazed Donut or You Can Make Your Own!
¼ cups flour
2¼ teaspoons instant yeast
¼ cup sugar
1 pinch of salt
1¼ cups warm milk
8 tablespoons canola oil
Shortening for frying
In a large bowl mix together flour, instant yeast, sugar and salt.
Add in warm milk, eggs and canola oil and mix well. If dough is too sticky, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time until you reach desired consistency.
Set your oven to 100F to proof the dough. It should double in size.
Transfer dough on floured surface and roll to ½ inch thick. Cut doughnuts with cutter, 3 inches in diameter.
Place doughnuts on individual pieces of parchment paper and proof to double. This can be done on the counter or if you are in a hurry they can go back in the oven at 100F.
In a large fry pan, heat oil to 375F and fry doughnuts until golden then flip. Once second side is golden, place on cooling rack. To catch the excess oil, place the cooling rack on cookie sheet.
