National Donut Day: DIY Recipe & Where to Get A Free Donut Today

home made donuts

I cannot believe we’re back at National Donut Day again! It feels like we were just celebrating it moments ago! I picked up a couple of donuts for my eldest kid home from school after graduating from Middle School this week.  There are lots of donut shops giving away free donuts today.

USA Today has a list. Or…if you are adventurous and want to do it yourself, you can follow this recipe from MyHomeMadeHeaven.com.

  1. 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 4 Tbsp sugar
  3. 3 Tbsp butter, softened
  4. 1/2 tsp salt
  5. 1/2 cup milk or kefir
  6. 1 egg
  7. 2 tsp Active Dry Yeast
  8. 1/2 cup tangzhong (see just below-don’t worry, it’s super easy)
  9. Oil for frying
Tangzhong (also see picture above)
  1. 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 1 cup water
  1. 3 cups powdered sugar
  2. 1/2 cup water or milk (I like to use water) (You can use less water if you want the glaze thicker- maybe start with 1/3 cup instead)
  3. 4 tsp vanilla
