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!

    Hi, I was wondering how much in advance can I make this? Any tips for it not to go stale? Thank you

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Sabresha, I know you can make ahead the donuts and freeze them, but once they’re fried it’s best to eat them right away.

    • Rily

    What do you mean by two eggs and yolks ?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Rily, this recipe calls for egg yolks aside from the eggs.

    • Mandi

    Love these! Turned out so good!

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Wonderful, Mandi!

    • Jules

    What should I do if I don’t have a donut cutter

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Jules, you can use an empty glass or a tuna can tin.

    • Sofia

    What kind of yeast?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Sophia, I use dry active yeast, but it doesn’t matter since either will be instantly activated in this recipe.

    • Adriana Cabrera Diaz

    Can I bake them instead of frying?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      You could try but I’ve only fried these donuts thus far.

    • Teri

    Hi there,

    Tried your recipe, the texture is great, and it does help settling the craving for a Dunkie / Krispie – Thank you!! Just a little comment, it seems to be very strong on the taste of yeast, as it does take a good 2 Tbsp, maybe it’s the brand? I used saf-instant yeast, -and most bread recipes I make only calls for around 1tsp only. Is there any other way I can reduce the use of yeast?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Teri, I usually use Red Star Yeast. If you reduce the yeast add another leavening like baking powder to compensate.
