Peach Glazed Donuts Recipe

peach glazed donuts recipeBud and Willow bought a tub of peach pie glaze a few weeks ago.  I’m not sure what they intended to use it for, but last week they told me I could use it for whatever I wanted.  So I did some brainstorming and decided that glaze would be phenomenal on some homemade donuts.  Even better – what if I put peaches in the donut batter as well.

These were a big hit at home the first day I made them.  Not only that, but when I took them to work I had to steal a few back just so I wouldn’t go home empty-handed.  Next time I’ll make a double batch!!

Peach Glazed Donuts

Ingredients:

Vegetable oil, for frying (enough to be about 2-3″ deep in the pan)

4-5 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup pureed peach

2 eggs

2 Tbsp. melted butter

1 tsp. vanilla

Peach Pie Glaze (like Marzetti’s)

Directions:

Heat oil to 375F in a deep fryer or kettle.

Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Stir in buttermilk, eggs, peach puree, butter and vanilla.   Beat until combined.

Add more flour, if necessary, until the dough forms a loose ball.

Turn dough onto well-floured, cloth-covered board or parchment paper.  Roll to about 3/8 inch thick. Cut with a well-floured donut cutter.

Slide donuts gently into hot oil using a wide spatula.  Turn donuts over once they float to the top.  Fry until golden brown.

Donut forget the holes!!

Let cool for 5-10 minutes.

Pour glaze into a shallow bowl and dip the tops of the donuts and holes into the glaze.
