Ever since I heard about Voodoo Doughnut in Portland, I have been wanting to go there just for their unbelievably mouth-watering donuts. Obviously being across the pond, I figured I wouldn't have a chance to go there any time soon. So, I decided to recreate some of their donuts in my very own kitchen. I made Krispy Kreme copycat donuts again, but I added some Cookie Crisp, chocolate Cheerios, Coco Pops, and Froot Loops on top. If this sounds like your kind of donut, then check out the recipe below!
*Makes: 50 donuts, depending on size of cookie cutter used
For the dough:
- 2 cups (480ml) milk
- 1/2 cup (120g) butter
- 2/3 cup (140g) granulated sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp yeast
- 4 eggs (beaten)
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 5 cups (650g) self raising flour
- 3 cups (400g) icing sugar, sifted
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup (120ml) cold water
- 1 handful of Cookie Crisp
- 1 handful of chocolate Cheerios
- 1 handful of Coco Pops
- 1 handful of Froot Loops
Step 1: In a measuring cup, measure out 2 cups of milk. Add your butter and stick it in the microwave starting with 30 seconds, until it melts. This will also warm the milk up in the process. Add salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and sugar. Add your dried yeast before letting the milk cool for 5-10 minutes. Add your eggs and then pour into a large bowl.
Step 3: The dough should be left in a warm place with a towel over it for an hour. This is so the dough can double in size.
Step 4: Once the hour is up, you should see that the dough has risen. Put some flour on your work surface so that your dough doesn't get stuck. You will be kneading your dough for a few minutes.
