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.

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.
