Krispy Kreme Donuts....oh I miss these....soooo



Krispy Kreme Doughnuts I am going to make them myself!


Raised Doughnuts -- Simply delicious and decadent.



2 pkg. Regular or Rapid rises yeast

1/4 cup Warm water (105 to 115)

1 1/2 cups lukewarm milk (scaled then cooled)

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp., salt

2 eggs

1/3 cup shortening

5 cups all purpose flour (see note)

Vegetable oil


Creamy Glaze or Chocolate Glaze



1. Dissolve yeast in warm water in 2 1/2-quart bowl.


2. Add milk, salt, eggs, Shortening and 2 cups flour. Beat on low

speed, scraping bowl Constantly, 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed

scraping bowl Occasionally, 2 minutes. Stir in remaining flour until



3. Cover and let rise in warm place, until double, 50 to 60 minutes.

(Dough Is ready when indentation remains when touched.)


4. Turn dough onto floured surface; roll around lightly to coat with

Flour. Gently roll dough 1/2 inch thick with floured rolling pin. Cut

with floured doughnut cutter. Cover and let rise until double, 30 to

40 minutes


5. Heat vegetable oil in deep fryer to 350 degrees. Slide doughnuts

into hot oil with wide spatula. Turn doughnuts as they rise to the

Surface. Fry until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side. Remove

carefully from oil (do not prick surface); drain.


6. Dip the Doughnuts into creamy glaze set on rack then when slightly

cooled spread chocolate glaze on top.



Works better to use 1/2 all purpose flour and 1/2 cake flour when

this recipe was used.




Creamy Glaze



1/3 cup butter

2 cups powered sugar

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

4 to 6 Tbsp. hot water



Heat butter until melted; Remove from heat. Stir in powered sugar and

Vanilla until smooth. Stir in water, 1 tbsp. at a time, until desired





Chocolate Glaze



1/3 cup butter

2 cups powered sugar

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

4 to 6 Tbsp. hot water

4 oz milk chocolate chips or semi- sweet chips



Heat butter and Chocolate over low heat until chocolate is melted;

remove from heat. Stir in powered sugar and vanilla until smooth.

Do these taste like the real Krispy Kream donuts?? I'm so bummed that they are going out of business! I noticed today that the one in the town closest to us is closed down. :-( Oh well, if this is comparable, I'd love to just make them at home!
