Here are some tips for making homemade glazed doughnuts: Mixing the ingredients:
In a large bowl, combine the water, milk, sugar and butter. Add 2 1/2 cups of flour and stir until just combined. The consistency should be like sticky cake batter. Cover and let stand overnight, or for at least 8 hours.
This helps the gluten in the flour develop and produces a lighter texture in the finished doughnut.
To make homemade glazed doughnuts, start by making the dough. In a large bowl, whisk together 2 cups of flour and 1 cup of sugar. Add 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/4 cup of shortening. Add 3 eggs and 1 cup of milk. Stir until well-blended.
Treat the doughnut pans with cooking spray and preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spoon a portion of the dough into each pan, filling it about two-thirds full. Bake for about 15 minutes or until you can poke a toothpick into the center of one and it comes out clean.
For the glaze, mix together 3/4 cup of sugar, 3 tablespoons of butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon of milk. Add more milk if necessary to make it thinner or more sugar if it’s too thin. When the doughnuts are done, let them sit in their pan for 10 minutes.
Then spoon some glaze over each one and top with sprinkles if desired.
Doughnuts are one of America’s most cherished and indulgent treats. They are easy to make and inexpensive; everyone will love them, especially during the holidays when you want to surprise your friends and family with something homemade.
