weeks months ago I came across this AWESOME pin on Pinterest. The description got me, 'Easy Doughnuts'. OH! YEAH! I have been searching and searching for an easy, and fast, doughnut recipe.
I excitedly clicked on the link.
Only to discover I had been eating these doughnuts my entire life and were no different than the recipe I already had. That part stunk but, it reminded me I need to carry on this tradition and make them for my girls more often.
They are VERY, VERY messy though. You end up with sugar all over your table and your children will end up with sugar in seriously EVERY crevice of their body. Yes, fully clothed I found sugar in my daughters diaper. How does that happen?!?!
Regardless, these are REALLY good and SO easy.
1 Can of Biscuits
Open can of biscuits and either stretch a hole in the middle or cut a little whole with a small bottle lid or small round cookie cutter (I have a fondant cutter I use when we want doughnut holes also).
Heat about 2-3 inches of oil in a saucepan. Place two-three pieces of dough in heated oil. Let one side brown to a light golden brown then flip.
You want to make sure your oil is not too hot or the outside of the doughnut will be brown and the inside will be raw.
Once your doughnut is a nice golden brown on both sides remove to a bowl with sugar in it. Cover doughnut with sugar and set on plate or serve immediately.
Some people I know like to add cinnamon to their sugar. I just like them with plain sugar.
