I made glazed donuts using Beaver Tails dough (Recipe ID: 697423. This is a light type dough.

Ingredients: 12 donuts

◎Bread (strong) flour
175 g
◎Cake flour
145 g
◎Vegetable oil
40 ml
◎Vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
◎Granulated sugar
35 g
125 ml
●Dry yeast
3 teaspoons
●Granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon
●Lukewarm water
60 ml
▲Powdered sugar (for glaze)
380 ml (in a measuring cup)
▲Water (for glaze)
130 ml
▲Salt (for glaze)
1/4 teaspoon
▲Vanilla Extract (for glaze)
about 2 drops


1. Please see "Beaver Tails" Recipe ID: 697423 and follow the Steps until punching the dough down in Step 7.
2. Divide the dough into 12 portions and form them into balls.
3. Dig your finger into the center of the balls of dough and spread out into donut shapes. This is so there is no seam.
4. Cut parchment paper into squares and place 1 donut on each piece of paper. Lightly cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 1 hour to proof a second time. Once they have risen to 2-2.5 times the original volume, they are done rising.
5. Before frying in the oil, place the ▲ ingredients into a large bowl and combine well to make the glaze.
6. Heat some frying-oil and add the donuts together with the pieces of parchment paper. Remove the paper midway through and fry until the surfaces brown.
7. While the donuts are still hot, add them to the container with the glaze. Coat the donuts with the glaze. You don't need to worry about using the glaze on the bottom of the bowl.
8. Place the donuts with the glazed side up, and once they are dried, they're done.
