Donut..think you can eat just one!

I made some donuts today and thought I'd share this totally awesome recipe of homemade donuts I got from my sister Kim. I got this recipe from her like 9 years ago, and it has ruined most store donuts for me, but that's ok. They're worth it. Here are some pictures, and then the recipe. Thanks again Kim!
I dont' know why but some of the pictures uploaded sideways despite my attempt to right them...sorry.

I use a glass cup, and a pill bottle to make the shapes. I like to have the donut holes too.

All ready to be fried!



Yumm-O. I like the glazed ones the most, but also like the cinnamon sugar. My sister also makes them with chocolate frosting and nuts. It's good anyway you like it! I make mine in a bread machine, which is the best way, in my opinion, but if you don't have one, then mix and rise in the usual fashion for making bread dough.

Donuts

¾ cup milk
½ cup hot water
1 egg
3 ½ cups flour
¼ cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons yeast

Place all ingredients into bread machine, on dough setting. When dough is finished rising place on floured surface. Heat oil in a pan to fry donuts. While oil is heating roll dough out on lightly floured surface and cut donuts into whatever desired shape. Fry donuts in oil until lightly browned. Coat in cinnamon-sugar mixture, glaze, chocolate, powdered sugar, etc.
Glaze:
Heat 2 tablespoons milk and 2 tablespoons butter together. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and powdered sugar until reaches desired consistency.

These are super easy in the bread machine and that is how I make them. Shaina's mixer worked ok too, I just like how you can pile all the igredients in and leave it till it beeps.

I sometimes add a package of vanilla pudding to the mix and then the dough has a sweet vanilla taste.
