Glazed doughnut balls

Who do not love doughnuts?They are my favorite. Why the most delicious foods are always rich in calories? this question always strikes my mind. If they are low calorie food I would have enjoyed them every day. I just started making this doughnuts, just at the end my hubby came from work and we both started munching on them, we were so busy in munching that I just forgot to take the pics of my lovely doughnuts. I just took them at the end.  they came out really yum!!!! here is the lovely recipe for all of you!

2  envelopes active dry yeast(each 0.25 ounce)
1/4 cup warm water (115 F)
1& 1/2 cups lukewarm milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/3 cup shortening
5 cups all-purpose flour
vegetable oil enough for frying
1/3 cup butter
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla essence
hot water as needed


  1. Add the yeast over the warm water, and let stand for 5-10 minutes until they become foamy.
  2. Take a large bowl, mix together the yeast mixture, milk, sugar, salt, eggs, shortening, and 2 cups of the flour.
  3. Mix for a few minutes at low speed by stirring with a wooden spoon. Beat in remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough no longer sticks to the bowl.
  4. Knead, until smooth and elastic. Place the dough into a greased bowl, and cover with wet cloth. Set in a warm place to rise until double. Dough is ready if you touch it.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and gently roll out to 1/2 inch thickness.
  6. make very small balls out of the flour. Let doughnuts sit out to rise again until double. Cover loosely with a damp cloth.
  7. For Icing: Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in hot water one tablespoon at a time until the icing is somewhat thin, but not watery. Set aside.
  8. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large heavy skillet to 350F. Just slide doughnuts into the hot oil using a wide spatula.
  9. Turn doughnuts over as they rise to the surface. Fry doughnuts on each side until golden brown. Remove from hot oil, to drain on a wire rack. 
  10. Dip doughnuts into the Icing while still hot, and set onto wire racks to drain off excess.
