Here’s a recipe very similar to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts!!!!

Homemade Krispy Kremes Doughnuts
3 T milk
3 T boiling water  
1 t dry active yeast  
8 oz all purpose flour (a little under 2 cups – I recommend you measure and weigh)
1 1/2 oz sugar (about 3 tablespoons)  
1 egg  
1 oz butter, cold to room temperature   
dash of salt
Enough oil to cover the bottom few inches of a wok, or a deep fryer.
In a large measuring jug, combine the milk and boiling water.  Add a teaspoon of the sugar and the yeast.  Stir it gently, then leave it in a warm place for the yeast to activate (aka foam).   In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, the rest of the sugar, and the salt. Cut in the butter using your fingers or a pastry blender, until it resembles crumbs.   Add the egg (give it a quick beat) and yeast mixture to the flour mix, and mix into a smooth dough.  This usually takes about 5 minutes of mixing.   Turn the dough out onto a lightly-floured counter and knead for about 5 to 10 minutes—it should feel springy and little bubbles should form under the surface. Place it back in the bowl, cover with a cloth or plastic wrap, and let rise for about an hour until double in size.   Once risen, place the dough onto the counter and cut it into 4 pieces.  One piece at a time, stretch it into a long rope about an inch to an inch and a half wide.  Cut strips about an inch long, ball them up with your hands, and place them on a baking tray or wire rack to wait.   Cover the doughnut holes with a cloth to rise while you heat the oil to 375F.   Place the doughnuts into the oil and fry until golden brown on each side, about 2 minutes.  Be sure to fry only a few at a time so they don’t overcrowd and stick together.   Drain on a paper towel or wire rack over a cloth, before glazing them.  Be sure to glaze them warm, or else they won’t get that delicious coverage!
1/3 c butter  
2 cups confectioner’s sugar  
1 1/2 t vanilla  
4 T hot water or as needed
Cream butter, gradually add sugar, then vanilla, and lastly water to desired consistency.
