Glazed Doughnuts

Ask the Test Kitchen

My husband and I made glazed doughnuts, but by the next day, all the glaze had soaked into them. How should they be stored so this doesn’t happen? —D.C., Normal, IllinoisDoughnuts are best eaten the day they are made, preferably while they are still warm…or no more than an hour or two out of the fryer. Unfortunately, the tightly covered containers that help keep doughnuts fresh also keep moisture locked in, which enhances the absorption of the icing by the doughnuts. Try glazing only those doughnuts that will be eaten that day. Any remaining doughnuts can be frozen in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To reheat, place the frozen doughnuts on an ungreased baking sheet. Cover doughnuts lightly with foil and heat at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until heated through. Glaze while warm.
