Bread Machine Raised Doughnuts

On national donut day, I made raised doughnuts for the first time.  They were so light and yummy.  I had this idea in my head that making raised doughnuts is difficult and time consuming, but after this experience, I just might make doughnuts more often.  I used my bread machine to mix, knead, and raise the dough, making the hands-on time minimal.

Ingredients (Makes about 12)
  • 2 T + 2 t water
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk, scalded and cooled
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 T + 2 t shortening
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 t dry yeast
  • canola oil for frying
For the Glaze
  • powdered sugar
  • water
  • chocolate (optional)
Other Toppings
  • Prepared frostings
  • Cinnamon-sugar (my family's favorite)
  • Powdered sugar
  • Sprinkles, decors, small candies

  1. Add ingredients to the bread maker in the order suggested by the manufacturer (for mine, it's liquids first, then dry ingredients, with yeast on the top).
  2. Set bread maker to the dough cycle, and start.
  3. When the break maker dough cycle is finished, punch down dough, and pat or roll 1/2" thick.
  4. Cut into doughnut shapes. Cover and let rise until double, about 30 minutes.
  5. In a deep pan, heat oil to 350°F. Carefully place the donuts in the oil. Cook until they're golden brown, about a minute each side.
  6. Drain on paper towels or paper bag.
  7. Top as desired.
For the Glaze
Mix water into powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached. Add melted chocolate to make chocolate glaze.
