This next recipe is an ALL-TIME Family Favorite. Whenever it gets cold or rainy, one of us kids is bound to text or call my mom and kindly ask if she’s up for making some Homemade Donuts. She is usually nice enough to do it, so a mass family text gets sent telling everyone that mom is making donuts. If this is the case ALL of the kids are bound to show up for some good eating and family fun. 

When talking to my mom she did remind me that there are quite a few steps to making this Homemade Donuts recipe, but she also said that it is very easy and the end result is just worth it! I AGREE!!

Like I mentioned, this recipe takes some time, but the donuts are just too good to not try it out for yourself. 


2 TB dry yeast
2 cups milk
½ cup shortening
2 tsp. salt
⅔ cup sugar
½ tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
4 eggs
6½ - 7½ cups flour


  • Dissolve yeast in ¾ cup luke-warm water. Set aside.
  • Heat 2 cups milk in microwave for 2-3 minutes.
  • While milk is heating add shortening to a large bowl. Pour hot milk over it and whisk until mixed. Add salt, sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Mix well with a wooden spoon. Add 4 eggs and mix well.
  • Add yeast mixture to batter and mix. Add 2 cups of flour and mix with a wooden spoon. Mix well. Add 2 more cups and mix. Add 2 more cups and mix. At this point, the batter should not be runny. Add 1 more cup of flour, give or take ½ cup. NOTE: You do not want your dough to be tough. Mix until your dough is smooth.
  • Sprinkle flour onto a clean surface and pour batter onto it. Gently knead dough batter until the surface is not sticky to the touch. NOTE: The dough should be very soft but not sticky that you can't handle it fairly easily. Place the soft dough into a lightly greased bowl. Cover the bowl and let rise for 1 to 1½ hours. Dough should be about double in size when done.
  • Place dough on a lightly floured surface and roll out to about a 1 inch thickness. Cut the doughnuts out as closely as possible. You can save the middles for doughnut holes. Move donuts and holes to a clean surface. Cover and let rise for 1 to 1½ hours.
  • Once the donuts and holes are done rising, fry them in a large frying pan with vegetable oil until golden brown.
  • While donuts are frying make your Glaze. To make glaze mix 7 cups powdered sugar with ⅔ cup water and 2 tsp. vanilla. Add donuts to glaze as soon as they are done frying and make sure both sides are covered. Place on a plate to let excess glaze drain.
