Glazed Donuts

Raph Rashid traded tacos for the sweet trade at All Day Donuts and has shared the recipe for his ridiculously light and fluffy creations with Sugar Kitchen.

  • All Day Donuts
  • Serves 12-14
  • Cooks in 35 minutes + resting


Dried Yeast 1 1/4 Tbsp
1 Egg
Plain Flour 600g
CSR Caster Sugar 1 Tbsp
Milk (at room temperature) 125g
Salt 1/2 Tsp
Natural Vanilla Extract 2 Tsp
Butter, Softened 40g
Vegetable Shortening
or Copha for frying


Step 01

Mix 1 teaspoon of the yeast, 250ml warm water, the egg and 225g of the flour together with a whisk until smooth. Cover and let stand in a warm place for 1 hour or until small bubbles start appearing on the surface.

Step 02

Combine this mixture with the remaining flour and yeast, the sugar, milk, salt and vanilla in a stand mixer with a dough hook and mix for 8 minutes on low speed. While the motor is running, add the softened butter. Continue mixing for another 2–3 minutes or until all the butter is combined and the dough forms a smooth ball. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl and set aside in a warm place for 1 hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.

Step 03

On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough until it is 1 cm thick. Using a round cookie or donut cutter, cut 12–14 rounds. Use an apple corer to punch out a hole in the centre of each donut. Put the dough rings on a lightly floured sheet of baking paper. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and set aside for another 30–40 minutes, or until the dough rings are nice and puffed up and have doubled in size again.

Step 04

In a heavy-based saucepan, heat the vegetable shortening to 170–180°C, or until a cube of bread dropped into the shortening turns golden brown in 15 seconds. Fry the donuts for about 50 seconds on each side. Remove and let cool on a wire rack, then glaze and eat with coffee!
