The secret to light and airy doughnuts? Your bread machine! The bread machine does a lot of the work, making it easier on you. The results are still absolutely delicious. After frying, let cool a bit. Then top with sugar, chocolate or other favourite ingredients!
I just made them and OMG they are sooo good. Instead of waiting 30-45 min to rise. I placed in a 130 degree oven to let them rise, and then cooked them. Glaze: 1 cup powder sugar, 1/2 milk and vanilla extract to taste. Great Recipe. - 18 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
So good and really easy! This was my first time making doughnuts so I was actually shocked that they came out as well as they did. I did everything exactly as stated in the recipe except the order of the dry ingredients. I put the sugar and salt in before the flour because that's just how my other breadmaker's recipes have it. It probably doesn't even make a difference. Afterwards, I dipped the doughnuts in a glaze I found in a review of another recipe. It's 1/4 cup milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 2 cups powdered sugar. Yummmmm.... UPDATE-----I just made these for a second time and they were SOOO much better! Make sure the wet ingredients (butter, milk, egg) are room temp or sligtly warmer. I placed the egg and the milk (in a cup) in a big bowl of warm/hot water to speed things up. Also, I turned up the temp on the deep fryer. It seemed the hotter, the better. Last time the taste was very similar to funnel cakes you get at the fair. This time they DEFINITELY tasted like doughnuts. This recipe is a keeper, for sure! - 14 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The first time I made these doughnuts I used plain flour as the recipe called for and put the ingredients in my bread maker in the order that the recipe said but my dough did not rise, so I started over. The second time I used bread flour and put the salt in the flour because I used bread machine yeast and read on the lable not to let yeast come in contact with salt. My dough did great the second time. I also put it in my propane oven with a standing pilot so it would stay warm. First time making doughnuts and they turned out great. I used a doughnut glaze that I found on recipezaar. My family loved these. Next time I will try using a biscuit cutter and filling the center with jelly. Good recipe - 25 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
