If you like Dunkin Donuts,  Krispy Kreme or a bakery style glazed donut, then wait until you try this recipe! This Dunkin Donuts Glazed Donuts Recipe is exceptionally FLUFFY! They’ve been commented on how they taste like Dunkin Donuts ones, but Krispy Kreme or any other gourmet tasting donuts would compare to the taste of these! I don’t know if there is a fluffier donut recipe then this! A HUGE thanks to my friend Lubasha for introducing this recipe to me! She has even commented, “that the first thing that came into my mind when I tried them was Krispy Kreme, mm,” on her IG post.

Can I take shortcuts making these Glazed Donuts?

I tried to take shortcuts for the recipe but they didn’t taste as fluffy, so please don’t use a whole egg in the place of the yolk or any shortcuts in that matter. Just follow the instructions and see for yourself what kind of results are even possible from this recipe! This recipe is a KEEPER!

    Can you repost the recipe for the chocolate glaze please? I can’t find it 🙁

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Sure Anita, Heat 1/4 cup cocoa, 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup margarine, and 1/4 cup milk in a saucepan. Boil 2 minutes remove from heat add 1/2 tsp vanilla and cool 20 min. Dip tops of the donuts in this glaze and its like chocolate frosted donuts! Icing thickens as it cools.

    • Josh

    Do you have a recipe for making the DD chocolate frosting they have on their donuts?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      I did share a chocolate frosting in the comments below 🙂

    • Icha

    Hi, what if I use half a recipe? Is it okay?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      That’s fine, Icha!

    • Rahshae

    Hi can all the ingredients be mixed in a bread machine on dough setting? Rather than mixing and kneading by hand.

    • Rahshae

    Hi, is it possible to put all the ingredients into a bread machine on dough setting and let it mix and knead for you?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Haven’t tried so Rahshae, but perhaps it will be fine.

    • Jessica

    Hi! Maybe could you please let me know weight of butter stick? Thanks in advance

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Jessica, a stick of butter is 113 grams or 4 oz.

    • Aina

    Hello Alyona im Aina, from Indonesia may i ask how many servings is for the recepie,?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Aina, this should make from anywhere of about 12-20 donuts depending on how big you cut them.

    • Rose

    Hi Alyona! I’m writing from Brazil and anxious to make this recipe, since we miss a lot a good american donut!!! Could you help me with the yeast? I have here the dry instant yeast. How many grams should I use?
    Thanks a lot!!!

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Rose, 1 tbsp of yeast is approximately 7 to 8 grams or 1/4 ounce. The recipe calls for 2 Tbsp so you will need about 14 to 15 grams of yeast or 1/2 ounce.

    • Saffron

    For the flour is it 4 cups and then a half cup or is it 4 half cups so technically 2 cups really confused me. it is really watery if you do the 4 half cups ?? Thanks

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Saffron, I used 4 and a half cups of flour for making these donuts.

      Depending on your location altitudes and elevation in baking can vary which means you may need to add additional flour. I’ve noticed some flours can vary in volume from brand to brand as well. The proportions in the recipe worked great for our elevation of 65′ feet. Here is a helpful article on high-altitude-baking from King Arthur.

      https://www.kingarthurflour.com/learn/resources/high-altitude-baking

      My advice is to add 3 Tbsp of flour and mixing it in well until the dough comes together. You want a tacky dough and one that’s slightly sticky for donuts. After the rising time, it will be easier to handle. Too much flour will not make as fluffy donuts, enjoy!

    • Sabresha

    Hi, where I am we don’t really have sticks of butter. So how much butter is required in cups please and also is it salted butter or regular? Thank you

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Sabresha, a stick of butter is 4 oz or 113 grams and that would be unsalted.
