Love Doughnuts? We Have Recipes!
These fried rings are delicious!
There are a number of ways to make doughnuts! There are fried doughnuts, baked doughnuts, and even doughnut holes.
While it's easy to just get a few pieces at your fave doughnut shop, here are recipes we think you should give a try:
1 Basic Doughnut Recipe
You can't start playing around with a doughnut recipe until you've tried a basic doughnut recipe first. This recipe is classic: it uses bread flour for that chewiness and yeast for that nostalgic aroma and puffed lift that only yeast can give a doughnut. If there's one doughnut recipe to try out first and master, this is it. Click on the video you can see exactly how it's done.
2 Cake Doughnut Recipe
Not all doughnuts are made the same and for this recipe, you're going to need an oven. However, that doesn't mean that these doughnuts are any less a doughnut. The biggest difference is that the texture is going to be denser, more cake than bread dough, and is still as delicious as if you made it in the traditional way.
3 Cinnamon Doughnut Holes Recipe
Not everyone has the time to make doughnuts from scratch. However, we do think that if you're hankering for doughnuts and have little time to spare to get some, watch how easy these are to make and make it at home, too, using this recipe instead. You don't have to wait for the yeast in the batter to rise up and puff before frying. Instead, the power of baking powder makes these the instant doughnut recipe you want when you're too impatient to either go out or make it the traditional way.
4 Filled Doughnuts Recipe
Those doughnuts pumped full of delicious fillings are really just doughnuts without the holes cut out of them. The doughnut recipe is basically the same but you'll have to skip the step when cutting the dough into the right shapes. Other than that, you'll also need to get yourself something to fill the doughnuts with and an icing bag is just the thing. Grab a disposable bag for easy use!
5 Churros Recipe
Didn't you know that churros are basically doughnuts in stick form? They are! It's a different kind of doughnut but these are still fried dough, formed into long sticks instead of rings, rolled around in cinnamon sugar. The churro, however, has the fabulous reputation of being crispy rather than just overly soft all over like a normal doughnut so the groves in the batter when piped is important! Still have that piping bag? It will come in handy!
6 Bicho-Bicho Recipe
How can you forget that we have our own kind of doughnut? We do! It's basically the same as other doughnut recipes but just like the churro, it's not formed into rings. Instead, these are rolled out and twisted before being fried. Once fried, these are also rolled in sugar for that classic bicho-bicho look and taste.
When you're done making your kind of doughnut, how about you choose how you're going to top it so you know exactly what to do while the doughnuts are resting? Here are 5 ways to flavor your doughnuts straight from the fryer:
7 Cinnamon and Cocoa Sugar Topping Recipe
Give your doughnuts a delicious twist! Instead of just rolling your fried dough in cinnamon sugar, amp up the earthiness with a light dusting of cocoa powder added to the mix. You still get that cinnamon sweetness but with a subtle bitterness from the cocoa powder that amplifies the other flavors that went with that bite.
8 Match White Chocolate Recipe
Satisfy your love for Japanese with this doughnut glaze that's flavored with matcha powder. The white chocolate is the perfect complement, in both flavor and in texture, so that when the doughnut is dipped into it, it's a silky coating that is not only pretty but delicious, too. Top it with sliced almonds like we did here for some crunch or leave it plain.
9 Chocolate Doughnut Glaze Recipe
You can't get more classic than this glaze recipe! Rich, decadent chocolate makes this doughnut totally irresistible! What makes this glaze super easy is that you can make it with just two ingredients: melted chocolate and vegetable oil.
10 Galaxy Glaze Recipe
You can this super easy glaze in two ways: using cocoa powder or using food coloring and glitter to make an impressive yet super mesmerizing glaze. Take your pick which you think is the one you'll love more.
