Do you guys spell it “doughnuts” or “donuts?” I like donuts. Seems more fun, which donut holes are!
This is another one of those recipes where I have to warn you: THESE ARE ADDICTING!!!
Again, this is such an easy dessert/snack to make. I think that adds to the addictiveness.
All you need is a can of biscuit dough, sugar, cinnamon, and vegetable oil.
Open your can of biscuits. I used buttermilk ones. Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. You will also need to make a cinnamon sugar mixture. This will all depend on your personal taste. You will use more sugar than cinnamon for sure. I think I used about a half cup of sugar and just added cinnamon until I liked the taste.
In a shallow pan, put in some vegetable oil. Don’t fill the pan up completely with it. Just enough so the donuts will be half out of the oil. The burner should be on a medium heat setting.
Once the oil is hot, start putting in your pieces of biscuits. It will take about 10 minutes or so for each batch of donuts. The time always seems to be shorter after each batch. You’ll know they are done when they are a deep golden brown. The pieces of biscuit aren’t that big, so it doesn’t take too long to cook.
Immediately when they are done, coat them with the cinnamon sugar. If you put the mixture in a Tupperware type bowl, you could put the donut holes in them mixture, put the lid on the bowl, and shake like crazy. Or you could do the same thing, but in a brown bag. Makes things a bit easier.
After that, you’re done. These are best warm. It is really hard to only have a few of these. Don’t blame me if you can’t stop eating them!
Pro Tip: If you don’t eat all of these in one sitting, and have left overs, just nook them in the microwave for a few seconds to warm them up for when you’re reading for your second helping.
