Recipe of Today: Homemade Sugar Donuts


  • 2 ¼ tsps active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • vegetable oil for frying

Sugar Coating:

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  • In the mixing bowl of your Kitchenin KM50 Stand Mixer, combine warm milk, sugar, and active dry yeast. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until frothy.
  • Attach the dough hook to your stand mixer. Add flour, salt, nutmeg, softened butter, and eggs to the yeast mixture. Mix on low speed until a dough forms.
  • Increase the speed to medium and knead the dough for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Transfer the dough to a greased bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.
  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface to ½-inch thickness. Use a donut cutter to cut out donut shapes. Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and let them rise for another 30 minutes.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a large, deep pan to 350°F. Fry the donuts for 1-2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  • In a bowl, mix granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. While the donuts are still warm, coat them in the sugar mixture.
  • Serve and indulge in the delightful, homemade goodness of your sugar donuts. Enjoy!
