Krispy Kreme Glazed Doughnuts are the original glazed yeast-raised doughnut that made Krispy Kreme famous. I’ve been known to make the detour when the “HOT” sign is on at Krispy Kreme but since I can make them at home I’ve become immune to the pull of the brightly lit signs. There is nothing quite like biting into a warm Krispy Kreme donut- It melts in your mouth and leaves you wanting more and more. I have to muster every willpower in me to stop at two. But to date, it has been an impossible task. Excited? Flip over the second page to get the full recipe (ingredients + directions)
