A few years back, I bought a mini donut pan.. I baked a half dozen different recipes and the best thing I could say was, "They are OK."
Didn't make any after that experience..

Can I freeze ‘em?

Thanks, all! I must say that I was so pleased with these donuts that I’m making another batch this weekend, with a different glaze, of course.

Can I freeze ‘em? And if I can, should I freeze them after they’re fried, or would freezing the cut dough raw be better? I’m thinking after they’re fried (in-iced, of course), then I could just pop one or two in the oven to heat up, and ice the warm donuts. I’d really rather not putz around with deep frying before breakfast!

If you had some doughnuts left over from Sunday morning breakfast and were going a little stale. What would you do? Make your doughnuts now, glaze them and toss in the freezer. Come morning, you want those doughnuts. Place what you want in a paper bag, put two or three drops of water in the bag, close tightly and reheat in your oven. Will taste like they just came out of the fryer.

Every Sunday morning my mother would send me over to Quality Bakery to get a dozen of mixed doughnuts. By Wednesday morning, what was left over was going stale. She always was able to revive them. I had my regular two pieces of toast with cocoa and a couple of leftover doughnuts. To me they tasted like they had just been made fresh. I ate a couple of doughnuts on the way to school.

Did you Google a chocolate glaze for doughnuts? There are so many five star recipes on the internet. Some are quick and easy, others not so much.

Breads freeze really well. I would freeze them individually, without glaze, on a baking sheet, then move them to a plastic bag. Then I would thaw and reheat them and glaze them after they cool completely. You don't want the glaze to melt into the doughnuts.
