Best 5 Doughnut Recipes

by in Recipes, August 30th, 2014

Italian DoughnutsWhether you’re craving a treat to pair with your morning cup of coffee or you want to indulge in a comforting dessert, look to doughnuts to satisfy your sweet tooth once and for all. These tried-and-true beauties are endlessly versatile, and while you may have enjoyed them only from the local bakery, they’re indeed possible to master at home. Start with a classic recipe for the batter, then dress up the doughnuts with cinnamon-sugar coatings, rich frostings or simple syrups for dipping. Check out Food Network’s top-five doughnut recipes below to find sweet inspiration from The Pioneer Woman, Ina Garten, Giada De Laurentiis and more Food Network chefs.

5. Apple Cider Doughnuts — Think of these easy-to-make doughnuts as dressed-up versions of the ones you likely enjoyed at the apple orchard. They’re laced with cinnamon and freshly made applesauce, and they boast a sweetened apple cider glaze.

4. Homemade Glazed Doughnuts — Follow The Pioneer Woman’s lead and let the batter chill overnight before frying it into doughnuts and doughnut holes. Once they’re ready, Ree Drummond dips them into a comforting vanilla glaze for tried-and-true results.

Piping Hot, Delicious Doughnuts

Sugar and Spice Doughnuts for HanukkahDuring the eight nights of Hanukkah, we’ll be celebrating the festival of lights with essential recipes for parties, nightly dinners, desserts and using up leftovers (after all, those leftovers deserve a second chance). It’s customary to eat fried foods on Hanukkah to celebrate the oil that burned for eight days. Doughnuts are a favorite fried dessert: serve these sugar-dusted treats piping hot, straight from your own kitchen.

Sugar and Spice Doughnuts: Crunchy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside, these doughnuts are the perfect festive treat. Apple pie spice adds something extra autumnal to the sugary coating; cinnamon would be delicious as well. Use vegetable shortening to keep these dairy free.

Apple Cider Doughnuts: These doughnuts are made with fresh apples, then rolled in cinnamon-sugar.
