  4. Grease bowl with oil and add dough, brush the top of the dough and cover with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel and let it rise for 1:30hr to 2h.
  5. Sprinkle a little bit of flour on your work surface and roll out dough to 1/2 inch thick, cut donuts with a round cutter and cut a hole in the center. Place donuts in a baking sheet, cover, and let it rise for 30-45 minutes.
  6. Make the donuts glaze by combining all the glaze ingredients together.
  7. Once donuts doubled again, start frying them in hot oil over medium heat until golden brown on both sides. Remove from oil and place them on a cooling rack. Dip each donut in the glaze allowing the excess glaze to drip off.
