Our family is on a real food journey. This means that most of what we eat is made from real, whole, quality ingredients and not chemical-laden, processed foods.
However, there are still a few things that just scream comfort, and this is one of those things.
In our family, Fridays are “fun night.” We have something fun for supper and watch a family-friendly show or movie. Sometimes we make something extra fun for dessert like these donuts. “Real” donuts have their place and I love those too, but there is just something special about these biscuit donuts.
If you haven’t tried them, you are in for a real treat!
Quick & Easy Biscuit Donuts
What you need:
- 1 Can of regular canned biscuits (10 ct)
- Granulated sugar
- Oil (for frying)
- Deep Fryer (worth the investment for the ease, but not required)
What to do:
- Preheat oil to 350 degrees. (if you’re using a regular skillet, just fill skillet with 2 inches of oil and heat on med-high heat.
- Open biscuits and remove from can. Form biscuits into shapes. For “donuts,” I simply use the round end of a wooden spoon to poke a hole in the middle and then work it a bit to widen the hole. For the “holes,” I simply tear a biscuit into 3-4 pieces and roll them into loose balls.
- Once you have your donuts and holes ready, and the oil is thoroughly heated, you’re ready to fry them. Gently place donuts in hot oil (be careful!), cooking them on each side for about 2 minutes, until browned.
- Remove cooked donuts and drain onto paper towels, then toss with sugar to coat. We just use plain sugar, but you can also add in cinnamon, use powdered sugar, or make a quick glaze (1 cup powdered sugar + 2 tbsp milk + 1 tsp vanilla).
