Vanilla Doughnut Glaze, Plus Variations

If basic is best when it comes to your doughnuts, this is the glaze for you. But if you opt for more flair, pick an easy variation.


Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1⅓ cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 T. vanilla
  • 2 to 4 T. hot water

Preparation
Whisk butter with confectioner’s sugar until smooth. Whisk in vanilla, and then whisk in 1 tablespoon of water at a time, stopping when glaze has consistency of light cream. If glaze thickens as it stands, add a touch more water.

Variations

Orange Glaze
Use 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 2 T. orange juice, the grated zest of 1 orange, and 2 T. hot water. If you don’t want the zest in the glaze, let the glaze stand for 10 minutes, then pour through a strainer. 

Maple Glaze
Use 3 T. maple syrup and 1 T. hot water.

Lemon Glaze
Use 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, 2 T. lemon juice, grated zest of 1 lemon and 2 T. hot water. If you don’t want the zest in the glaze, let the glaze stand for 10 minutes, then pour through a strainer.
