Cream Cheese Doughnuts with Glaze


When Chanie explained her vision for a cream cheese dough and glaze, I’ll admit I was skeptical. But as my trusty taste-tester neighbors can attest, it worked out great! Make sure to fry them fresh, because eating them the next day is just not the same.


Prepare the Doughnuts

1. Warm milk until warm but not boiling. Add yeast and let set until proofed.
2. Mix sugar with butter and cream cheese until smooth, then add eggs one at a time. Mix until combined. Add flour and salt, then the yeast mixture. Mix until elastic and smooth.
3. Cover the bowl and allow the dough to rise in the fridge for two hours or up to overnight.
4. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll into balls, 1/2-inch (one centimeter) thick. Let rise at room temperature until doubled in size, about one hour.
5. Heat a pan with oil until it reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). Fry doughnuts in batches until browned.

Prepare the Glaze

1. Mix all glaze ingredients with a whisk until very smooth. Add more milk if necessary.
2. Dip doughnuts into glaze while still hot.
