Ingredients (6)

For the donuts:

  • 1 recipe Basic Yeast Donuts

For the glaze:

  • 3 cups powdered sugar, also known as confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 1 teaspoon light corn syrup

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of fine sea salt


Make our Basic Yeast Donuts, then dip them in this simple vanilla-flavored glaze, made with powdered sugar, light corn syrup, hot water, and a pinch of salt.

Game plan: Plan to finish the donuts within 1 hour of making the glaze—otherwise it can easily become too stiff to coat.

Instructions

  1. 1Mix the dough, let it rise, roll it out, and cut it into donuts according to the directions. Fry the donuts and donut holes and set aside to cool.
  2. 2Place the powdered sugar, hot water, corn syrup, vanilla, and salt in a shallow bowl and whisk to form a very smooth glaze. Cover with plastic wrap until ready to use (and use within 1 hour).
  3. 3When the donuts are just cool enough to handle, dip them top-side down into the glaze. Let the excess glaze drip off, and let the donuts dry on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Do the same with the donut holes. Decorate with sprinkles, coarse sugar, chopped toasted nuts, dried coconut flakes, or whatever you fancy before the glaze sets.
