Remove the donuts from the hot oil and rest them on a wire rack placed over a baking sheet to drain excess oil or simply place them on some paper towels to absorb the excess oil.


To make the donut glaze, whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla extract and water in a small mixing bowl until smooth.
