  1. Make the Dough:

    • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, yeast, and salt.
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together warm milk, melted butter, and egg.
    • Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms.
    • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5-7 minutes, or until smooth and elastic.
    • Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  2. Shape and Fry the Doughnuts:

    • Punch down the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface.
    • Roll out the dough to a ½-inch thickness.
    • Use a doughnut cutter or a mug and a small lid to cut out doughnut shapes.
    • Gently re-roll any scraps and cut out additional doughnuts.
    • In a large pot or deep fryer, heat oil to 350°F (175°C).
    • Carefully place the doughnuts in the hot oil and fry for 1-2 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
    • Remove the doughnuts from the oil and drain them on paper towels.
  3. Make the Milk Filling:

    • In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered milk, condensed milk, water, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  4. Assemble the Doughnuts:

    • Once the doughnuts are cool enough to handle, you can either inject the milk filling into the doughnuts or coat them.
      • To inject the filling: Using a piping bag fitted with a small tip, insert the tip into the side of the doughnut and pipe in the filling until it’s full.
      • To coat the doughnuts: Dip the cooled doughnuts in the milk filling, letting any excess drip off.
  5. Coating (Optional):

    • While the doughnuts are still wet from the milk filling, you can roll them in granulated sugar or powdered sugar for an extra touch.

  • Make sure your milk is warm, but not hot, to activate the yeast.
  • If you don’t have a doughnut cutter, you can use a mug and a small lid to cut out doughnut shapes. The mug will make the doughnut center and the lid can cut out the hole.
  • Don’t overcrowd the pot when frying the doughnuts. This will cause the oil temperature to drop and make the doughnuts greasy.
  • Let the doughnuts cool slightly before filling or coating them. Hot doughnuts will melt the filling and make it messy.
  • You can adjust the amount of milk filling to your preference.

Enjoy your delicious homemade milky doughnuts!
