  • 1 1 yeast packet in warm water until double in size
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour


  • In a stand alone mixer, add in the warm milk and the yeast. Whisk until combined and then let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • Add in the egg yolk, flour, butter, sugar, salt and vanilla and mix with the dough attachment.
  • Mix for 4 minutes until everything is combined.
  • Remove dough and place on a floured surface. Knead into one large ball.
  • Spray a medium bowl with oil and place the dough in the bowl.
  • Cover with a dark towel and keep somewhere warm for the dough to rise.
  • Wait 1 hour for the dough to double in size… you can make the filling while you’re waiting for this.
  • When the dough has risen, punch it in the middle (kinda of fun in a weird way!) and then roll out 1-2" thick.
  • Cut circles using biscuit cutters.
  • Fill a medium pot halfway with canola oil and bring it to 350 degrees. Keep a thermometer in there so you can gauge the temperature, keeping it at 350 degrees.
  • Drop two donuts in the hot oil and cook on each side until golden brown… about 35 seconds on each side.
  • Remove and place in on a plate that's lined with a paper towel to soak the grease.
