Here they are, these aren't the pretty ones. Those disappeared before I could snap a photo of them. I dunked them in pink frosting. Wait....... did you hear that? I think I heard them calling my name. I am strong, I am strong! Oh help me please!
I wish I could remember where I found this recipe, I roll out the red carpet for them, honestly!
1-1/8 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Package Yeast
2 Large Eggs
1-1/4 Stick Butter melted
4 Cups Flour
1/4 teaspoon Salt
Warm the milk for about a minute in the microwave, add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Sprinkle the yeast over the milk/sugar mixture and stir gently. Let this sit undisturbed for 10 minutes. Melt butter, let cool and mix with beaten eggs. Mix well. Add the egg/butter mixture to large mixing bowl, on medium speed mix in yeast mixture. Mix until thoroughly combined. Add the flour 1/4 Cup at a time until the flour is all gone. Let the mixer run with a dough hook on medium speed for 10 minutes. Put the dough in a greased bowl, turning the dough to coat all sides, cover with plastic wrap and put in the fridge for at least 8 hours.
Remove dough from the fridge. Lightly dust surface with flour. Roll dough out until 1/4 thickness. Cut donuts using 3 inch and 1 inch biscuit cutters, (I didn't have any of these so I used a 3 inch cup and a baby bottle to cut the center out, creative?). Let the donuts raise for 1 1/2 hours.
Heat oil to 375 degrees, not more than 380 degrees. Gently put 2 donuts in the hot oil, cook for about 1 minute on each side. Drain on paper towels and dunk into your favorite glaze.
