#To Make The Glaze:
– Butter: 1/3 cup
– Confectioners’ sugar: 2 cups

#To Make the Cinnamon Sugar Coating:

1. First you’re going to get a large measuring jug and combine in together the milk and boiling water. You’ll want to add a tsp of the sugar and the yeast, stirring gently. And please leave it in a warm place for the yeast to activate (aka foam).
2. Immediately combine together the flour, the rest of the sugar, and the salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut in the butter using the tools god gave you (fingers) or a pastry blender until it resembles crumbs.
3. At this time, add the egg (give it a quick beat) and yeast mixture to the flour mix. And please mix into a smooth dough for 5 minutes.
4. Next, the dough needs to be turnned out onto a lightly-floured counter and knead until feel springy and little bubbles should form under the surface, it takes around 5 to 10 minutes. Now that you’re done, place it back in the bowl and cover with a cloth or plastic wrap then allow to rise until double in size, about 60 minutes.
5. As soon as it is risen, place the dough onto the counter and cut it into 4 pieces. Should be one piece at a time; you may want to stretch it into a long rope about 1 inch to 1 inch and a half wide. Afterwards, cut strips about an inch long, ball em up with your hands, and place them on a baking tray or wire rack to wait.
6. While you heat the oil to 375F , cover the doughnuts holes with a cloth to rise.
7. Place the doughnuts into the oil and fry until golden brown on each side, it takes around 2 minutes. Make sure to fry only a few at a time so they don’t overcrowd and stick together.
8. Always remember to to drain on a paper towel or wire rack over a cloth before glazing them. Okay now, combine everything in a small bowl, whisking until smooth for the glaze. You’ll want also to combine the ingredients in a small bowl, whisking until well combined for the sugar coating.
9. The last step is to glaze or sugar coat them warm. Otherwise, they won’t get that delicious coverage!
