As a nation we fell in love with the sugary, glazed goodness of a Krispy Kreme doughnut when stores first started opening back in 2003.
The first outlet was in the world-famous Harrods department store which became one of 35 in the UK, but it closed in June 2011.
You will always know when you are about to approach a Krispy Kreme store as the sickly sweet smell of freshly baked rings is often hard to miss and you can’t help but catch a glimpse of their infamous ‘Hot Now’ sign that lets customers know when you can get your hands on extra fresh doughnuts.
While the original glazed will always be the ultimate go-to choice there are many other melt in the mouth flavours to choose from including the chocolate iced custard, Reese’s peanut butter and my dough of choice, Oreo Cookies and Kreme.
As we head into our fourth week of lockdown in the UK, many of us are keen to try our hand at recreating some of our all-time favourite treats that we can no longer get our hands on as stores across the country close.
So, it’s always handy when we can get our hands on a new and exciting DIY recipe and this is where when Aussie man comes in after he shared his iconic Krispy Kreme recreation of the glazed ring doughnut.
Rob Nixon who runs Nicko’s Kitchen regularly posts videos showing people how to make well-known treats at home.
And despite what you may think, the Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut isn’t that difficult to master.
2 cups milk
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons yeast
4 eggs (beaten)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
5 cups SR flour
3 cups icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup cold water
To make the doughnuts you will need a handful of basic ingredients including milk, sugar, eggs, self-raising flour, butter, dried yeast and some nutmeg.
To start off you will need to mix the doughnut ingredients together into a sticky dough and knead.
Once they are shaped you’ll need to fry them for 2-minutes on each side.
For the glaze, you will need to combine icing sugar, water and vanilla extract then ice both sides of the doughnut and leave to dry.
Rob’s TikTok video has since gone viral racking up more than 786,000 views and he’s also shared a more in-depth YouTube video if you need extra tips.
They look mouth-wateringly good and who doesn’t love a fresh doughnut?
On Rob’s Youtube channel you can also find out how to recreate your own Burger King Whopper, the Subway Meatball Sun and even McDonald’s M&M McFlurry’s which would be perfect in the warmer weather.
