It is a well known fact that I love donuts. Donuts hold amazing memories from my past. When I was a kid, I would help my Dad on the weekends. It always included starting the day off at Daylight Donuts and a carton of Chocolate Milk. Then years later, another family bought Daylight Donuts and they had a Chocolate Covered Long John with a cream cheese filling. Oh my goodness....I loved those!
Note to self: try to make those someday...they can't be that hard!
Now days, I love a Raspberry Jelly filled Bismark. What is your favorite donut?
I decided to make donuts for the kids this morning and they were a huge hit! They got lots fo NUM NUM's from the children. These are so easy and so yummy! I could have eaten all of them...but I am a good Mommy, I shared.
Homemade Fabulous Donuts...and Holes
Tube of Biscuit Dough
1 cup (or more, depending on your pan) Vegetable or Canola Oil
Cinnamon and sugar mix or frosting of your choice
Very carefully open the biscuit can and lay out the biscuit dough. Flatten each one with your hand and using a small cutter, press a hole in the center of each biscuit. Make a pile of donuts and holes.
Heat a pan over low/medium heat and add 1 cup of oil. You may need more, at least enough to cover half of the donuts while cooking.
Start with the holes and cook them for about one minute. The bottom will be golden brown when it is ready to turn. Cook for another minute on the other side. These cook very fast....so pay close attention. Use tongs to remove them from the pan to a paper towel to drain and cool slightly. Repeat with the donuts, 3 at a time until donuts are all done.
Put the donuts on a plate and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture or frost and sprinkle.
