Instructions
For the doughnuts
  1. In a bowl, stir the 1 tbsp of yeast into three fourths of the warm milk.
  2. Add three quarter of the flour and stir until there is a smooth paste.
  3. Cover the bowl, and let the mixture sit in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  4. Add the remaining yeast and milk to the mixture and combine using an electric mix.
  5. Add the vanilla and egg yolks and mix until the dough is smooth
  6. Then add one cup of flour, sugar and salt and mix until they are well incorporated into the dough.
  7. Add the softened butter and mix until it is absorbed into the dough.
  8. Finally, add the remaining flour, a little at a time and continue whisking.
  9. Once all the flour is kneaded in, cover the dough and let it rest in a warm place for half an hour
  10. After 30 minutes, press down the dough to remove gas bubbles and then chill for 6 – 12 hours.
  11. After the required time, flour a work surface and roll the dough to about 2 inch thickness.
  12. Use shape cutters to cut dough circles that are about three inch in diameter
  13. In the middle of the circles, use a smaller shape cutter to cut 1 inch diameter holes
  14. Arrange the doughnuts on a baking sheet that is lined with flour, leaving at least one inch between each doughnut
  15. Cover the doughnuts with a plastic wrap and leave them in a warm place to rise
  16. Check the doughnuts every ten minutes to see if they have risen
  17. You will know the doughnuts are ready if, when you place a fingertip on the dough and gently press it down, it rises back up slowly
  18. Once ready, fry each doughnut in a deep fryer, with oil that is 360°F.
  19. Fry, flipping once for about two minutes until the doughnut is golden brown
  20. Allow the doughnuts to cool slightly before glazing them (using a glazing brush) with the sugar glaze
  21. Serve and enjoy!
For the sugar glaze
  1. While waiting for the doughnuts to rise, prepare the glaze
  2. In a small bowl, stir the water and vanilla into the sugar until the sugar completely dissolves
  3. Once it dissolves, voila – your glaze is ready!
