A glazed doughnut is a popular type of sweet pastry made from a yeasted dough that’s fried until golden brown. Once cooked, the doughnut is dipped or coated in a sweet glaze, adding a shiny, slightly crispy outer layer to the soft and fluffy interior.The glaze typically consists of powdered sugar, milk or water, and sometimes flavorings like vanilla or other extracts. It’s applied while the doughnut is still warm, allowing the glaze to spread and coat the surface evenly, creating a smooth and glossy appearance.

The taste of a glazed doughnut is a delightful combination of sweetness from the glaze and the buttery, light texture of the dough. The glaze provides a sugary sweetness that complements the subtle flavors of the doughnut itself, making it a beloved treat for many.
