Warm Donuts for Cold Januaries

Macy Schafer
“Glazed Donuts” From Author’s Personal Collection

     As the dead of Winter approaches, you may be looking for something warm and cozy to bake while huddling together inside. With all the time on your hands, you may want to consider trying donuts. They may seem intimidating at first, but they are well worth it. There are many great donut bakeries, but we all know Krispy Kreme is at the top. That’s why this copycat recipe is perfect for fresh, warm donuts in the morning. Krispy Kreme is known for its incredibly light and airy donuts and a glaze so thin it flakes away as you eat it. There are many variations of copycat recipes out there, but this recipe is the best of them all. These donuts are a one-day process, but if you want a fluffier and airier donut, you can make the dough the night before and let it rise in the fridge overnight. Though this recipe is best for glazed donuts, you can also use this for other kinds like Boston Creme, strawberry glazed, etc. These are the best donuts you’ll ever try.
