What ever made at home is always healthy and good. First I thought donut was a baked item after searching for the recipe of donut only I came to know it’s a fried item anyway for kids its not so harm to give some fried items rarely there were some munchkins which I got while shaping the donuts. I fried out the munchkins before the donuts are fried to check the heat of the oil.

Ingredients Serving: 6

  1. 3 cup All purpose flour
  2.  cup sugar
  3. ĵ tsp salt
  4. 2 tsp Dried instant yeast
  5. 1 cup Warm milk
  6. 1 egg at room temperature
  7. 2 tbsp butter at room temperature
  8. oil for frying
  9. For glazing:
  10. ½ cup Icing sugar
  11. 1 tbsp Cocoa powder
  12. ½ cup Milk
  13. ĵ cup butter


  1. Spinkle the yeast over the milk,keep aside for 5 mins. In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar and salt. Add the milk mixture slowly to the flour,start kneading.
  2. Add the slightly beaten egg and butter to the flour and mix well for 8 to 10 minutes till smooth and elastic. If you feel the milk is less warm some more milk and knead or you can use warm water also.
  3. Now cover it with a wet cloth and keep for rising for 1 to 1½ hours. After rising punch down the dough and keep for 10 minutes.
  4. Roll the whole dough on a floured surface into 1/2 inch thickness. Shape out the donuts with a donut cutter or a round shaped bowl or glass. The middle hole can be shaped out with a bottle lid also.
  5. Continue the same with the left over cut pieces.
  6. Now keep this shaped out donut in floured surface for another 45 minutes to 1 hour for rising. Now the climate here is so hot that I didn’t needed more than 45 minutes for the donuts to get double in size.
  7. Now in a frying pan fill half portion with oil for frying. Start with munchkins to see the heat of the oil. We should maintain the heat of the oil.
  8. The oil should not be so hot that the donuts will get brown very fast and the inner portion will not be cooked. So keep the flame always on medium. Now start frying the donuts slowly till light brown color appears.
  9. Drain out the excess oil. Now for glazing mix icing sugar with milk and butter. Make two half of this, in one half mix cocoa powder and other half leave plain. And keep some icing sugar as it is.
  10. Now coat icing sugar all over some donuts. Dip some donuts in plain glazing. Dip some in chocolate glazing. You can even melt some cooking chocolate with milk and dip some donuts in that too. Enjoy donuts with a hot coffee!
