Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Desserts #Sweet #Breads: EASY RAISED DONUTS w/DONUT GLAZE from Karen’s Kitchen

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is EASY RAISED DONUTS w/DONUT GLAZE!

This is one of those “old school” recipes that have been in kitchens forever. This recipe’s for those who weren’t raised when I was, when we were looking for simple treats to make on our own, when it wasn’t that easy to hop to the corner donut shop. I was partial to the raised, not cake, donut. So this one met my needs. It’s a great way to involve the kids in making their own donuts, too.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

Donut Glaze (Recipe Below)

Thaw bread and let rise until double. Roll dough on lightly floured surface to 12 x 9-inch rectangle. Cut with donut cutter. Cover. Let rise until almost double, about 1 hour. Cut with biscuit or donut cutter and fry in deep hot fat (365*) about 1 minutes. Turn for 1 minute more. Drain on paper towel. Brush with Donut Glaze or sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (before it’s completely dry).


Mix 1 cup sifted powdered sugar, 4 tsp. milk and few drops almond extract. Brush over Easy Raised Donuts.

For cinnamon sugar variation, mix 1 cup sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon. Mix well. Sprinkle over donut. Or put in bowl and turn the cooked donut gently in the sugar and remove to paper towel to cool.

Happy Eating!
