Ingredients

  • DOUGHNUTS
  • 3 1/4 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon
  • 1 + 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup butter OR margarine
  • 3 egg yolks
  • Mazola® Corn Oil for deep frying
  • APPLE CIDER GLAZE
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Karo® Light Corn Syrup

Preparation

  1. For doughnuts:
  2. COMBINE 2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, salt and cinnamon in a large mixer bowl. Heat milk and butter to very warm (120° to 130°F). Add to flour mixture with egg yolks; beat for 2 minutes at low speed. Continue adding flour, until soft dough forms.
  3.  
  4. KNEAD on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic (about 4 to 6 minutes). Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll out dough on a lightly floured counter into a 12-inch circle, about 1/2-inch thick. Using a 3-inch cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out as many rounds as possible. Cut out center with a 1-inch cookie cutter or poke hole through the center with finger. Place doughnuts about 2 to 3 inches apart on lightly greased or parchment lined baking sheet. Re-roll and cut remaining dough. Cover doughnuts and let rise for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  5.  
  6. HEAT at least 2 inches of oil in a deep fryer or deep pan to 350°F. Fry 2 to 3 doughnuts at a time, turning occasionally until well browned, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Cool a few minutes, then transfer to wire rack. Drizzle with Apple Cider Glaze OR using tongs, dunk the doughnuts in the glaze. Serve warm.
  7.  
  8. For Apple Cider Glaze:
  9. BOIL apple cider in a small saucepan until reduced in half, about 7 to 10 minutes.
  10.  
  11. PLACE powdered sugar in medium bowl. Whisk in hot cider and corn syrup until smooth.
  12.  
  13. Note: These can also be baked. Simply preheat your oven to 375°F, and bake the risen doughnuts for 8 to 10 minutes.
