Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Place yeast in the bowl of a mixer. Pour milk over yeast; stir to combine. Let stand until foamy, about 2 minutes. Add 2 3/4 c flour to bowl without stirring. Cover tightly with plastic and let stand in a warm place until surface is cracking, about 45 minutes.
  2. Whisk together 1/4 c flour, the yolks, brown sugar, granulated sugars, vanilla, salt and cinnamon.
  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, swirling occasionally, until dark brown with a nutty aroma. Remove from heat. Pour browned butter over yolk mixture; whisk to combine.
  4. Add yolk-butter mixture to yeast mixture. Beat with mixer on medium-low speed until just combined. Add remaining 1/2 c flour. Beat on medium-high speed until combined , about 2 minutes (dough will be sticky). Transfer to an oiled bowl; cover. Let stand in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 2 hours. Turn out dough onto a floured surface, and knead for 2 minutes. Return dough to bowl. Let stand until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes more.
  5. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gently roll out dough into a 10x25 rectangle. Cut crosswise into 20 1/2 in thick strips. Bring ends of 1 strip together, twist, and pinch ends to seal. Place on a baking sheet. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  6. Heat 2-3 inches oil in a heavy 5-quart saucepan until a deep fry thermometer registers 375 degrees. Working in batches, fry doughnuts, turning occasionally, until browned, about 2 minutes. (Adjust heat as necessary to maintain oil temperature.) Transfer doughnuts to paper-towel-lined plates to drain; let cool slightly. Toss doughnuts in superfine sugar.
