vanilla donuts with maple glaze

We had company over this weekend, so that was all the excuse I needed to make donuts. I woke up a little early on Saturday, and got to work on the dough. I love a good cake donut, but there is just something about fluffy yeast donuts.

Based on this recipe here, I added normal vanilla instead of the vanilla bean, and no one complained at all. The glaze was really sticky, and kinda a weird consistency when they were being dipped, but again, no one complained about the final product. I loved that they were yeast donuts, but baked instead. Not having the house smell like oil was a big plus, especially with having company over.

They are basically soft, warm donut pillows that dreams are made of.vanilladoughnuts1vanilladoughnuts2vanilladoughnuts3
