Yields: Makes 2 Dozen Donuts.


  • 5 cups of vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 4 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ cup of unsalted butter

For the Glaze

  • 1 ½ cup of confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons of whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Method of Preparation

  • Start by making the glaze. Sift the sugar in a medium bowl.
  • Stir in the milk and extract until the glaze is smooth. Thin the glaze by adding additional milk, if needed.
  • Cover the glaze in plastic wrap and set aside.
  • Add the oil to a large, heavy-bottomed pot. Bring the oil to 350º F using medium heat.
  • Line a plate with paper towels.
  • Whisk the milk and egg together in a small bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Stir in the egg mixture.
  • Add the melted butter and mix until a soft dough forms.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to drop portions of the dough into the pan. Fry in batches for about 2 minutes. The donut holes should turn a golden brown color.
  • Transfer the fried donut holes to the plate lined with paper towels.
  • Allow the donuts to cool slightly, then drop them in the glaze.
  • Set them on a wire rack to allow the excess glaze to drip off. Serve warm.
