The second step of the yeast donut recipe is to let the yeast over the warm water that is poured in a small bowl to get dissolved for approximately 5 minutes. In these 5 minutes you can either get some fresh air from your window or continue reading the 3rd step of the yeast donuts recipe (I did both at the same time). When you are back, pour the yeast mixture into the milk and shortening mixture and start stirring. In the yeast donut recipe, you can stir it with your hand or you can use a mixer as well. Now, you have to add the eggs, sugar, salt, nutmeg, and ½ of the flour. Isn’t it looking already nice and delicious? Oh Yes! I don’t know about you but my excitement was huge while following the yeast donut recipe. With the help of a paddle attachment the ingredients and mixtures described by the yeast donut recipe should be incorporated with flour. Be careful while mixing! When you first start to mix, start with a slow speed and increase the speed later when the mixture has been incorporated appropriately. Otherwise you will end up like me…I did a great mess with flour everywhere in my kitchen while following the instructions of the yeast donuts recipe. Now you can add the remaining rest of the flour except for the amount that will be used in dusting. Beat again with a slow speed and increase as it turns into a fluffy dough. If you have a dough hook attachment, attach it and start beating until the dough is pulled away from the bowl. If you don’t have such an attachment, do it as I did. I wore my gloves and did beat the dough with my hands. I must say it was a nice activity to get rid of my stress. SO, win-win thanks to the yeast donuts recipe easy. This beating took 3 to 4 minutes. Now it is time to give a break and enjoy a nice coffee until the dough doubles its size in a well-oiled bowl.
