I’ve mourned the loss of our local Krispy Kreme for years. The husbear jokes that I probably kept them afloat for an extra few months with my frequent trips in. Now I get my fix when I visit states that are so lucky as to have Krispy Kremes. But I may have a fix. Actually, I think I have something even better.
These Wanna be Famous Doughnuts from From Cupboard to Cupboard are phenomenal. They are airy and tender, and seem to melt in your mouth. They disappear in an instant.
This recipe yields quite a few doughnuts, and works just fine with powdered milk, which is all I seem to ever carry in my pantry. The best part is the glaze. It really is just like Krispy Kreme. That soft, yet hardened shell. And a buttery sweetness encasing the delicate fried dough. I wound up doubling the glaze, as mine were really coated in it.
Bring these to a party. You’ll make some friends.
