Raised Doughnuts

by Holly on November 5, 2013


This is going to be one of those quick and down and dirty posts. I’ve already been called a sadist and a vixen for my fluffy, doughnut teasing ways on Instagram and Facebook today. So, since fried dough, especially when covered in chocolate and sprinkles, needs no further ado, well, let ’em rip! Happy National Doughnut Day (which incidentally is Benny’s first birthday!)

I promised to get this recipe out to you ASAP so here it is, iPhone pics and all!


These doughnuts are light and fluffy without being airy and insubstantial. You’ll want to have a deep fry thermometer for the best, most consistent results.

While the recipe looks excessively long it’s because I’ve included a lot of hints and tips I’ve learned over the last several years making doughnuts at home. If you read the directions you’ll see it has more to do with little tricks than difficulty.

Since I just typed all this from memory on my phone while sitting at Cole’s gymnastics practice if you see something that makes no sense before I can proof this against my notes at home, please let me know!


In case it helps I’ve included a collage of the process from dough to doughnut below. I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!

Being as how I watched these doughnuts unfold on Instagram, I wanted to bust down your door and pull a Cookie Monster as I scarfed my way through them, but seeing as how I couldn’t, I wanted to strangle you for the IDT (Instagram Doughnut Torture, it’s a real thing, I’m sure it’s scientifically documented somewhere by people with credentials). Despite the IDT, I do love you to pieces for sharing the recipe.
