Homemade Glazed Donuts are easy to make and are much fresher than anything from the store. If you have ever wanted to make Krispy Creme donuts at home then this recipe comes pretty close.


Add the yeast to warm water (1/3 cup) and let sit for a few minutes.

In a mixing bowl with the paddle attachment add the yeast/water mix and then add the shortening and the milk. Mix on low, then one at a time add the eggs, salt, nutmeg, sugar, and half the flour. Slowly mix the ingredients together.

Then add the rest of the flour and put on the dough hook. Mix for a couple of minutes.

Place the dough in a well oiled bowl and let rest for an hour, or until doubled in size.

Then turn out and divide into as many pieces as you want to make. We made around 24 donuts.

Place the donuts on a baking sheet and cover for about a half hour.


In a cast iron pan, or dutch oven bring about 1 1/2 inches of oil to about 365 degrees F.

Place 3 or 4 donuts in the pan for about 1 minute on each side.

Turn out onto a sheet pan to let cool.

Sugar Glaze

In a bowl mix together 1/8 cup milk or half and half with about 2 cups of powdered sugar. Glaze the tops of the warm donuts.
