These donuts were a product of the 2-foot blizzard of January 2016, and the weekend of snow-day baking that naturally ensued. However, I highly recommend that you don’t wait for an excuse to make them. Get your life.
This recipe is long, and might be intimidating, but really, it’s four general steps: make a yeasted donut batter & let it rise, brown the butter, fry the donuts, make the glaze. It’ll be worth it, I pinky promise.
