Course Dessert


Tangzhong magic mix: 4 tbsp milk, 1 tbsp flour

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1.5 tsp yeast
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp milk powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 5 tbsp softened butter divided into 2 parts
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the regal Maple Glaze on half the donuts: 1.5 cups powdered sugar, 2 tbsp maple syrup, 2 tbsp milk, 2 tbsp hot water

    For the chocolatey glaze on the other half: 3/4 cup chocolate chips + 1-2 tbsp oil

      Cinnamon sugar for the donut holes: 3 tbsp sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon


        • Start by making the Tangzhong – mix flour and milk in a nonstick pan over medium heat until it thickens.
        • Combine the Tangzhong with cold milk, add yeast, and let it chill for 5 minutes.
        • Add in all the other dough ingredients, keeping half of the butter aside.
        • Knead at medium speed for 5 minutes, then add the remaining butter and knead for another 5 minutes until you have a smooth dough.
        • Cover the dough and let it rise for 1 hour.
        • Roll out the dough into a 1/2 inch thick circle and cut out the donuts (about 3 inches in diameter). Don’t forget the donut holes!
        • Let them rest for 30 minutes, then fry those beauties until golden perfection – 45 seconds per side for donuts and 75-90 seconds for the holes.
        • Mix up your glazes: maple glaze in one bowl, melted chocolate with oil in another.
        • Also, blend sugar and cinnamon for the donut hole roll.
        • While the donuts are still warm, dip them in the glazes and let them drip on a wire rack.
        • Roll those donut holes in cinnamon sugar.
        • Now, the best part – Enjoy!!! Devour them warm for the ultimate delight, or savor them up to 1 day at room temperature.

        Happy donut indulging! 🍩✨
