Homemade Krispy Kremes

*Ingredients :

°3 tsp milk
°3 tsp boil water
°1 tsp active dry yeast
°8 ounces all-purpose flour (just under 2 cups
°1 1/2 ounces sugar (about 3 tablespoons)
°1 egg
°1 ounce butter, cool to room temperature
°1 pinch salt
°1/3 cup butter
°2 cups confectioners' sugar
°1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
°4 tablespoons hot water (or as needed)

In a large measuring jug, mix the milk and boiling water. Add a teaspoon of sugar and yeast. Gently stir it in, then leave it in a warm place until the yeast (aka froth) activates.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, remaining sugar, and salt. Cut the butter in with your fingers or using a pastry blender until it resembles crumbs.
Add the eggs (beaten quickly) and yeast mixture to the flour mixture and combine into a smooth dough. This usually takes about 5 minutes of mixing.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured counter and knead for 5 to 10 minutes - the dough should feel springy and small bubbles should form under the surface. Place it back in the bowl, cover with a cloth or plastic wrap, and let it rise for about an hour until it doubles in size.
Once cooked, put the dough on the counter and cut it into 4 pieces. One piece at a time, tighten it into a long rope about an inch to an inch and a half wide. Cut strips about an inch long, lift the ball with your hands, and place on a baking tray or wire rack to wait.
Cover the holes with a cloth so that they rise while the oil is heating to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Put the buns in the oil and fry until golden brown on each side, about 2 minutes. Make sure to only fry a little at a time so they don't get crowded and stick together.
Drain on a paper towel or wire rack over a rag before glazing. Make sure to buff them warm or else they won't get that delicious coverage!

Enjoy !
