Authentic Krispy Kreme Doughnut Recipe? Update, YES!

Added: Saturday, June 29th 2013 at 8:35pm by Farsider

Someone had posted to Facebook during the week an authentic Krispy Kreme doughnut recipe. So I made up a batch or the dough and have it in the fridge for morning. We will see how authentic the recipe is.

The recipe calls for-

2 cups of flour

3 tablespoon of boiling water

3 tablespoons of milk

3 tablespoons of sugar

1 teaspoon of yeast

1 egg and 1/4 stick of cold butter. 

1/2 tsp of salt

Also a glaze of 1/3 cup of butter, 2 cups of confectioners sugar and 2 tsp. of vanilla extract. I also added about 1/4 cup of milk. By the time I was ready to start the filling and glazing, I stuck the 4 cup glass measuring cup with the glaze in it right into the microwave, nuked it for a minute and the re stirred. 


Mix water, milk, 1 tsp of the sugar together, add yeast.

In a bowl combine flour, the rest of the sugar, the salt, mix and then cut in butter. Add the egg and the yeast mixture. Bring together and the knead for 10 minutes. Let rise until doubled in size, Punch down. rest for 10 minutes, roll out and cut with 3" cookie cutter. Cut holes in center and let rise until doubled in size. Fry in 376 degree oil a couple at a time until browned on both sides.
I'm going to make strawberry jelly doughnuts so no holes here. I'll just squeeze some fresh strawberry puree that I have made up with our strawberries into these puppies when they are made in the morning. And yes, I will still glaze them. 

I took the dough from the fridge this morning, rolled it to about a 1'2" thick and cut the rounds, oblongs actually with my bent bisciut cutter. I lated the doughnuts onto a floured sheet pan to rise one more time. I covered the doughnuts and set them into the oven. I preheated the oven to it's lowest temp and then shut it off. A half hour later and I was ready for frying. 

Now right off the bat this authentic recipe looked screwy regarding the liquid measurements. A normal dough would call for at least 3/4 cups of liquid for 2 cups of flour. The 6 tablespoons of liquid, the egg and sugar didn't come any where near to the right amount and I ended up adding about an additional 1/4 cup of milk which still came out to be a reasonably stiff dough. I'm letting it rise slowly in the fridge because the original recipe had me cut the butter into the flour for a reason. I want to keep it cold. 
If the recipe works out well, the next batch will be my favorite. Blueberry filled jelly doughnuts. 

I just finished making them and here are the pictures.

I never liked Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, but with a recipe you can fool around with some and make your own dough...Sounds like you did just that.

Let me know how it turns out.

I didn't want to add to much liquid though. I'm not sure whether or not the concept is frying a pie dough to get a doughnut.


I added to the blog with pictures. They turned out excellent.

Now those look good enough to eat...

Sometimes there is nothing like a fresh doughnut.

I have always wanted to make my own, but never have.  Don't know why either...LOL

Those things melt in your mouth!

Can't wait to hear how these turn out!  Krispy Kreme blueberry-filled are my favs, too.  I always buy some to bring back home when I'm vacationing at the beach.

We use to have one nearby but like anything else, they are really popular when new by the fad dies very quickly. It's a shame too. The only other donuts around are Dunkin Donuts and they don't even make their donuts on premisise anymore. Always stale. Never any jelly in a filled donut. Krispy Kreme filled them suckers.

This recipe was spot on with the addition of more milk Nikki. I aded to the blog with pictures.

Oh, my goodness, those look absolutely scrumptious!!

My Art Sunday.

...you know what might work inside the donut? Canned cranberry sauce. If you cut it in chunks...ya think?

When we first got Krispy Kreme around here, I was seven different kinds of excited because everyone was talking about how good they were.  It was one of the biggest disappointments of my life.  The dang things were all air!  Maybe it's because there's a mom and pop bakery just up the road that makes real doughnuts daily, but my first Krispy Kreme was my last.  Which, when you think about it is a good thing - 'cause you guys can have my share!  LOL!

That's exactly why I like them for Jelly Doughnuts Moppy. I stick a wooden spoon into the center edge of an end, wiggle it around and have a nice large cavity for the filling. All that air is like a puffed pastry without the gumminess

Ok, that's a good point!

Hmmm I love jelly donuts!

These were so good Vic. The strawberry puree, I made that lastweek from the strawberries I picked from the garden. I don't have a big patch but was able to get a couple quarts so far this year. 

YUMMY!  I gained weight looking at your pictures. I'm glad you were able to fix the recipe.  Now I'll have to swing by KK and get ONE to satisfy the craving...no way would I make a whole batch (danger!danger!){#stick-bash.gif}
