Lately, I get a temptation to buy a box of sweet treats every time I pass by a doughnut store esp. Krispy Kreme. Alright, think of that as a confession 'cause honestly, I hated the said doughnut store for selling the sweetest and the softest glazed doughnuts. So to satisfy my craving without paying for a ridiculously expensive and extremely sinful Krispy Kreme, I decided to make glazed doughnuts at home. Here is the result of my first attempt. Dyaaraannnn!
I decreased the amount of sugar for the glaze.
I did a little adjustment with the butter for the dough, too.
Cutting the dough.
Allowing the doughnut rings to rise.
The recipe I used is from the350degreeoven.com. Will share the recipe as soon as I perfect cooking it.
I know I was not able to follow the required time for kneading and rising of the dough, I skipped using vanilla (cos I ran out), and my brother was the one who fried the doughnut rings.
The end product was okay but it was not very close to Krispy Kreme. I noticed that the glaze melted under room temperature (probably because of the super hot weather) and the doughnuts hardened on the next day.
I will try and try cooking glazed doughnuts until I perfect them. I will not to rush, strictly follow the procedure, and make sure to have the required ingredients in my pantry next time.
Do you like doughnuts? Which doughnut store you like? What is is your favorite doughnut flavor?
