Wow. These are amazing! They tasted very similar to Krispy Kremes! I added 1/3 cup more sugar to the batter and a teaspoon of vanilla. They turned out fantastic! I think the problem some of the other reviewers had who gave lower reviews was with the oil-- you need to make sure it is the right temperature or else they will cook too quickly making the inside too soft or else if it is not hot enough, they will cook to slow and get really oily and gross. Monitor the temperature and these will turn out fantastic! I will definitely make these again.

Directions See How It's Made
- Mix together ingredients for glaze.
- Melt butter in hot milk, add 1 tsp sugar and salt. Allow to cool.
- Beat in yeast, nutmeg, eggs, remaining sugar, and 3 cups flour.
- Add rest of flour (dough will be sticky).
- Knead for 5 minutes then allow to rise for 1-1 1/2 hours.
- Roll out dough, cut into shapes.
- Do not re-roll dough, then allow to rise for 30-45 minutes.
- Heat oil to 365° and fry 1 - 2 minutes on each side or until brown. Toss in the doughnut holes first, let those cook, and then proceed to cooking the donuts.
- Let them cool on a paper towel - helps get the glaze to stick.
- Dip in warm glaze.
