AP flour instant yeast granulated sugar salt eggs egg yolks salted butter water granulated sugar cinnamon canola oil


STEP 1: Mix flour, yeast, sugar & salt in a stand mixer. Add in eggs & egg yolks followed by butter & water & mix.

STEP 2: Knead the dough until it begins to peel itself away from the sides of the bowl and forms a ball around the hook attachment.

STEP 3: Push the dough to one side of the bowl, grease the open side of the bowl, then repeat with the other side. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap.

STEP 4: Place the bowl in a warm environment & allow it to proof until it’s doubled in size, then punch it down & turn it onto a floured work surface.

STEP 5: Line two baking sheets with 16-20 4x4” parchment paper squares, split dough in half, roll each half into a log, then cut each log into 8-10 chunks.

STEP 6: Roll each chunk into a ball & place them on the prepared baking sheets. Cover with plastic wrap, and allow to proof.

STEP 7: Prepare for frying the donuts by lining two cooling racks with paper towels and spreading the sugar in a bowl.

STEP 8: Ten minutes before donuts are done proofing, heat oil to 360F. Place 2-4 donuts in the oil at a time, being sure to leave space around them.

STEP 9: Fry the donuts on each side for 1 to 2 minutes, or until they are browned. While they’re still warm, toss the donuts in the sugar & serve.
