This is my favorite way to enjoy a cake doughnut, without any fancy flavors, just a good honest scratch doughnut glazed with a thin coat of icing. As you might expect, it’s a very easy thing to do. Just combine:
8 ounces powdered sugar
2 tablespoon plus two teaspoons water or milk
a few drop of vanilla extract
Stir until your icing is smooth:
Dip your slightly warm or cooled doughnut…
…and quickly remove it to a wire rack where the icing will drip down the sides and harden.
Now where did I put that cup of coffee?
