  • 1 cup (240 ml) warm milk, divided
  • 3 cups (720 ml) bread flour, divided
  • 1 ½ tbsp (22.5 ml) caster sugar
  • ½ tsp (2.5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 3 egg yolks
  • ¾ tsp(4 ml) salt
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) unsalted butter, room temperature

Directions

Doughnuts

  1. In a bowl, mix together ½ tablespoon (7.5 ml) yeast and ½ cup (120 ml) milk. Allow yeast to dissolve (about 10 minutes).
  2. Add ½ cup (120 ml) flour and sugar to the yeast mixture and stir together to form a paste.
  3. Cover and set aside to rest 30 minutes.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add remaining yeast and milk. Allow yeast to dissolve (about 10 minutes) and then combine.
  5. Add flour paste to yeast mixture and combine.
  6. Add vanilla and egg yolks to the mixture, and stir together using the dough hook.
  7. Add salt and 1 cup (240 ml) flour and continue mixing.
  8. Add butter and continue combining.
  9. Add remaining flour a bit at a time until dough forms and pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  10. Remove bowl, cover, and let rise for 1 hour.
  11. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured counter (too much flour will burn when deep-fried).
  12. Using doughnut cutters or cookie cutters, cut out 3-inch (7.5 cm) doughnut rounds – reserving holes.
  13. Set donuts on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
  14. Heat oil in a pot to 350F (180C).
  15. Lower donuts into oil using a metal spatula or spoon.
  16. Let cook 2 minutes each side.
  17. Remove and let drain on paper towels.
  18. Add doughnut holes and fry just until golden.
  19. Remove and let drain on paper towels.
  20. Let cool.
