Open the top cover of the bread machine and lift the handle of the bread pan vertically, pulling upward to remove the pan from the machine. Place the bread pan on your work surface. Make sure the pan is clean and both kneading paddles are in place.
Add all of the ingredients to the bread pan in the order listed.
Put the bread pan back in the bread machine, pressing it down so that it clicks into place. Close the lid of the bread machine.
Plug the bread machine into an outlet and press the power button to turn the machine on.
Use the menu button to select program #6 for the dough cycle.
Press the start button to begin the dough making cycle.
Once the dough is done, the countdown timer on the front of the machine will read 0:00 and the machine will beep, indicating your dough is done. Open the machine at this time and use a pot holder to lift the pan out of the machine.
Gently lift the dough out of the machine and place it on a floured work surface.
Roll the dough to ½ inch thick then use a 2 ½ inch donut cutter to cut out the donuts. Place the donut cutouts on a lightly floured tray, cover loosely and let the dough rise for 30 minutes.
Fry the donuts in 375 degree oil. The donuts will take about 2 minutes to turn a beautiful golden brown, flipping them halfway through.
Let the donut cool slightly then ice, glaze or simply enjoy them plain!
