Super Easy and Yummy Homemade Doughnuts

Lydia Berger

Last weekend my kids were asking me to make homemade Doughnuts. You don't need super sharp culinary skills to make perfect yeast donuts at home—anyone can do it!

I tried this recipe and it turned out so good that my kids got very excited and believe me you have to make lots of doughnuts as kids won’t spare a single one out.

Here’s the best part – they are made from one of my most favorite products: Frozen Bread Dough. I use the frozen dough to make soooo many things… ‘homemade’ cinnamon rolls, pizza bread, monkey bread, etc. For the glaze, I used my Warm Chocolate Icing. I really hope you take the time to make these some weekends, it is a fun process to do with your family. I have great memories of making donuts with my kids on the weekends. I remember thinking how amazing it was that I could top them with anything I wanted. Unleashing creativity starts early.

1 loaf of thawed but still cold frozen bread dough loaf or rolls (Rhodes brand is what I use)

vegetable oil

Thaw the frozen bread dough overnight in the refrigerator or with the defrost method in your microwave. Cut the loaf into 12 equal sections, or use the individual rolls to form donuts.

Poke a hole in the middle of each section, then stick a finger from each hand in the hole and sort of wind them, stretching the center hole. Place them on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet.

Spray a piece of plastic wrap with non-stick spray, then cover the donuts and let them proof in a warm spot for 30 minutes.

Fry the donuts for just 30 seconds to a minute on each side, then remove and place on a paper towel-lined tray. Let cool slightly, then glaze while still warm.
