Coffee-Glazed Coffee Donuts

Servings: 1 dozen
Preparation: 45 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes

Boxing Day morning just took on new meaning with these babies. Fuel your shopping expedition with a couple of these to-go! The hint of coffee in the dough opens the way to the powerful coffee goodness of the icing, made with three simple ingredients: sugar, water and coffee. Yes, please.

Colombian light instant coffee
  • 1 Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
  • 2 Combine milk and Van Houtte® instant coffee in a small bowl.
  • 3 Cream butter and sugar for 2 to 3 minutes with an electric mixer. Add egg and continue beating for 1 minute. Add milk to coffee and blend in dry ingredients with a wooden spoon.
  • 4 Cover and refrigerate dough for a few hours (up to 12 hours).
  • 5 Heat oil in fryer to 350°F.
  • 6 Divide dough in half and refrigerate one portion.
  • 7 Roll out dough to ¼ in. thickness. Cut out donuts using a cookie cutter 3 in. in diameter and the holes using a cookie cutter 1 in. in diameter, or using a small glass and a thimble. Flour generously.
  • 8 Form dough remnants into a ball, roll out again, and cut out more donuts. Repeat until dough becomes too thick. Set donuts aside in freezer during preparation.
  • 9 Fry donuts, 4 at a time, for about 1 minute per side or until golden.
  • 10 Place on paper towel and let cool for a few minutes.
  • 11 In a small bowl, mix icing sugar with dissolved coffee until smooth. Add a little water if needed.
