Homemade Krispy Kremes

Ingredients:

3 tbsp milk

3 tbsp boiling water

1 tsp dry active yeast

8 oz all purpose flour (a little under 2 cups - I recommend you measure and weigh. )

1 1/2 oz sugar (about 3 tablespoons)

1 egg

1 oz butter, cold to room temperature (just don't melt it, okay?)

dash of salt

 Enough oil to cover the bottom few inches of a wok, or a deep fryer.

 

Directions:

In a large measuring jug, combine the milk and boiling water. Add a teaspoon of the sugar and the yeast. Stir it gently, then leave it in a warm place for the yeast to activate (aka foam). In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, the rest of the sugar, and the salt. Cut in the butter using your fingers or a pastry blender, until it resembles crumbs. Add the egg (give it a quick beat) and yeast mixture to the flour mix, and mix into a smooth dough. This usually takes about 5 minutes of mixing. Turn the dough out onto a lightly-floured counter and knead for about 5 to 10 minutes—it should feel springy and little bubbles should form under the surface. Place it back in the bowl, cover with a cloth or plastic wrap, and let rise for about an hour until double in size. Once risen, place the dough onto the counter and cut it into 4 pieces. One piece at a time, stretch it into a long rope about an inch to an inch and a half wide. Cut strips about an inch long, ball em up with your hands, and place them on a baking tray or wire rack to wait. Cover the doughnuts holes with a cloth to rise while you heat the oil to 375F. Place the doughnuts into the oil and fry until golden brown on each side, about 2 minutes. Be sure to fry only a few at a time so they don’t overcrowd and stick together. Drain on a paper towel or wire rack over a cloth, before glazing them. Be sure to glaze them warm, or else they won’t get that delicious coverage!

Glaze: 1/3 cup butter 2 cups confectioners' sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 4 tablespoons hot water or as needed A brief note: I recommend a scale, as not all flours (and cup measurements) are made equal. 2 cups of my Canadian flour in my Canadian cups on my scale might be more or less than yours. If you don't have a scale, start at 1 1/2 cups and work your way up from there.
