Baked Donuts

I made these donuts this weekend and they were delicious, but best eaten the same day. The original recipe is from homejoys.blogspot.com

Here's the recipe:
  • 2 T yeast
  • 1/4 c warm water
Dissolve the yeast in warm water
  • 1 1/2 c warm milk
  • 1/3 c butter
Add milk and softened butter and stir for one minute
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t nutmeg (I didn't use this)
  • 1/4 t cinnamon
Add all ingredients together with above and beat on low speed until smooth
  • 4 1/2 -5 c flour
Stir in flour to form a soft dough. Do not knead. Cover and let rise in a warm place for one hour.
Punch down turn onto a floured surface and roll 1/2 inch thick. Cut donuts and place on greased baking sheet, let rise until doubled. Bake 350 degrees about 12 minutes. This makes between 10-14 donuts. Glaze while warm with powdered sugar glaze.  
The glaze:
3 c powdered sugar 
about 1/2 can evaporated milk and a couple tablespoons softened butter. I dipped the donuts in the glaze and added sprinkles.
