These were absolutely delicious! Not Krispy Kreme in texture, but I think they are as close as you can get at home and the taste was RIGHT ON THE MONEY!
*I saw where someone said they would scald their milk, I highly reccomend you NOT do that as it will kill your yeast. Anyone who knows yeast will automatically know that. You can't have your yeast mixed with anything warmer than lukewarm.
*If you don't have enough glaze, just thin it a little with some more water. I would not change a thing, including adding more sugar as some have recommended. If you have a really sweet tooth, okay, but the glaze makes them sweet enough for me and my family.
*I also saw where someone said they could get greasy if not eaten right away. To avoid your doughnuts absorbing the grease, simply make sure your grease is hot enough. I alway heat my oil for at least five minutes or so on medium high to ensure this and then turn it down to medium before cooking with it. NOTE: Use cooking oil with a high smoke point to avoid fires!
I will definitely make these again. Perhaps with cake flour next time and see if the texture is close to Krispy Kreme, but they are THE BEST homemade doughnut I have had to date.
