How to Make Homemade Doughnut

Simple doughnut batter: flour, sugar, salt, yeast or baking powder, milk, butter, and eggs. We offer dozens of doughnut recipes.  

Making Doughnut Batter

Mixing yeast with batter creates yeast doughnuts, also known as "raised" doughnuts, which require time to rise.  

Yeast Doughnuts

Yeast doughnuts require dissolving yeast in warm water and waiting 5 minutes for froth. Stir the frothy yeast into the flour mixture and add the additional ingredients as directed.  

When the dough is firm, knead it for 3–5 minutes on a floured surface until smooth and elastic. Cover the dough in an oiled bowl and let it rise in a warm area for 30–45 minutes until it doubles in size.  

Make cake doughnuts with baking powder instead of yeast. After kneading and shaping, cake doughnuts go into the hot oil (or oven) without rising. As expected, they're denser and cakeier.

With a simple batter, you can improve. Put chocolate pieces or funfetti in the batter. Try pumpkin pie spice with pumpkin puree, cinnamon and nutmeg, orange zest, or carrot cake.
