Glazed Doughnuts Recipe

The coffee-flavored glaze on these moist and tasty doughnuts makes them a perfect way to start off the morning...on Christmas Day or any day. You'll find this recipe is a great way to use up leftover potatoes. —Pat Siebenaler, Random Lake, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Cook: 5 min./batch YIELD:48 servings


  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 cups warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup hot mashed potatoes (without added milk and butter)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract, optional
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 9-1/4 to 9-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 to 8 tablespoons cold 2% milk
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 6 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Dash salt
  • Oil for deep-fat frying


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, butter, potatoes, eggs and, if desired, extract. Add sugar, salt, cinnamon and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 2. Stir down dough. On a well-floured surface, roll out to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. doughnut cutter. Place on greased baking sheets; cover and let rise for 45 minutes.
  • 3. Meanwhile, for glaze, combine 6 tablespoons milk, coffee and vanilla; stir to dissolve coffee. In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Gradually add milk mixture; beat until smooth, adding milk to reach a good dipping consistency.
  • 4. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry doughnuts, a few at a time, about 1-1/2 minutes per side or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Dip tops in glaze while warm. Yield: about 4 dozen.
