Confession: I love me some donut.
There is no donut-providing bakery anywhere near me. Sure the Wal-Mart has “donuts” but they are not donuts. Are you with me?
What do you do when hours from a donut source? Become the source; making donuts from scratch is my only option and my, what a delicious option it is.
I feel a strong moral obligation to connect you with this recipe from The Pioneer Woman. She is amazing in general but has really come through with this recipe. She has lots of comments on the process of making these donuts, so instead of rewriting the whole thing, I think you should just check out her post yourself.
The only thing I changed was the glaze.
Glaze for hot yeast donuts
4 tablespoons salted butter, room temperature
1 t. vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
Enough milk to make a thin icing (about 1/2 cup)
Just combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix until smooth. Add just enough milk to make thin icing.
Feel free to comment on the life-changing experience that making these leads to.
