  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
* * * GLAZE * * *
2/3           cup  honey
1/3           cup  water
* * * DOUGH * * *
3               cups  all-purpose flour
3        tablespoons  sugar
1           teaspoon  salt
2 1/2      teaspoons  yeast
1                cup  milk
2        tablespoons  butter
2              whole  eggs -- room temperature
peanut oil for frying

Combine honey and water in a bowl and microwave on high for 1 minutes.
Stir to mix well. Place in the refridgerator to cool for at least 1 hour
or until cold.

In a bowl combine the milk and butter and microwave on high for 1 minute.
In your machines fully assembled pan place all of the ingredients and
select the dough cycle and press start.  This will not form a smooth dough
ball but will be more of a super thick batter. DO NOT adjust recipe, you
want it to be a super thick batter type of dough. After 5 minutes of
kneading stop the machine and allow the dough to rise until doubled or 1
hour.

Preheat your oil or start your deep fryer (see notes) when the oil has
reached 375 degrees stir the batter down to deflate and then drop by
rounded teaspoonful in to the hot oil. Do 6 or 8 at a time. You don't want
to over crowd them in the oil as then need room to expand. Cook on each
side for 2 minutes and then remove to paper towels. Repeat with the
remaining dough. Allow the donuts to cool 1 minute and then dip them in
the honey mixture and allow to dry for a few minutes. Serve slightly warm.

NOTES : GLAZE:

The included glaze is very nice. Use a light colored honey
for best taste. You could also roll the donuts in powdered
sugar or make a fondant icing. Or, combine 1 cup powdered
sugar with 1 tsp. vanilla extra and just enough milk to
form a smooth thick but pourable glaze. Add in your
favorite flavored extract or cocoa powder for a chocolate
icing.

DEEP FRYING:

I just recently purchased a deep fryer
(http://www.hsn.com/cnt/prod/default.aspx?pfid=935587&club
id=935587&sz=0&sf=&dept=&cat=) which has been just
incredible. It never cools off and just makes the most
incredible fried foods. Add to that that the majority of
it can be placed in the dishwasher for easy clean up makes
it the best deep fry I have ever owned. I highly recommend
it. If you don't have a deep fryer you can use a heavy pot
and a deep fry thermometer.

OTHER IDEAS:

You could add some orange zest and extract to the dough or
to the honey glaze. I have also tried places bits of
cinnamon covered apple in the center of the dough before
frying for apple fritters. You could do this wish other
fruit as well.
