Easiest Homemade Donuts
Updated: Oct 25, 2018
Ever just wish you could make donuts on a whim? Better yet, on a whim and in any shape you want? Well, my friends, you can. And they are so easy and delicious. I've been making these for years but this time I went festive for Valentine's Day!
All you need is some biscuit dough, some cinnamon sugar, some oil for frying, and your favorite cookie cutter shape.
Like I said, I went for hearts this time. I just popped out the biscuits and cut out hearts. Then I re-rolled the excess dough so I could use it all up. One can of biscuits gave me 20 small/medium sized donuts.
Next you're gonna heat your oil on medium/low. If the oil is too hot, the outsides will cook too fast and the middles will be left doughy. Start with one to test your heat. You want a nice slow, even cook through.
Then use a slotted spoon to flip so they are evenly cooked on both sides.
Have a bowl of cinnamon sugar ready to pop them into when they are done frying but still warm.
Make sure you get them evenly coated.
And that's seriously all there is to it! Add some fun colored sprinkles if you want.
I can't even tell you how good these are fresh out of the sugar. I mean, a slice of heaven.
Make your Valentine's Day breakfast extra festive this year!
