Super Simple Donuts

These donuts hit the spot for a breakfast, dessert or just a sweet snack. 

They are super simple to make too.

This recipe includes two toppings for the donuts; powdered sugar and a cinnamon-sugar mixture.

My fave is the cinnamon-sugar mixture but the powdered sugar topping is good too.

They definitely taste best right after making them while they are hot. 

These yummies tend to get gobbled up quickly so you may want to get an extra can of biscuits or two.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Pre-made biscuit dough, sugar, cinnamon, and powdered sugar (not pictured, canola oil).

Here’s how to make it.

Remove the biscuits from the container and let them sit on a plate for about 5 to 8 minutes or until they are at room temperature. 

This will make them more pliable for making the hole in the middle of the biscuit.

In each biscuit, make a hole in the middle by pushing your finger through.  Shape the biscuit into a circular ring.

In a small bowl, mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon.  The bowl should be a bit bigger than the size of one of the donut rings.  Set aside.

In a separate small bowl, add the powdered sugar and set aside.

Put the canola oil in a frying pan.  The oil should be a little more than about ½ inch deep in the frying pan.

Heat the oil on medium heat so the oil doesn’t get too hot. 

Drop in 4 of the donut rings.

It’s a good idea not to add all 10 of the donut rings in the oil at the same time because they cook so fast and you’ll need time to coat them one at a time with the sugar.

When the donut side that is face down in the oil turns a golden color, turn it over with a pair of tongs.

When both sides of the donut are a golden color, remove it quickly from the frying pan.

Right out of the frying pan, put one donut at a time in the granulated sugar-cinnamon mixture. 

Cover the entire donut (both sides) with as much of the sugar mixture as possible.

Repeat the process of cooking the donuts and dipping them in the sugar.

Serve immediately after cooking.  Tastes great with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee.

Enjoy!

Super Simple Donuts

Yield: Serves about 3

Ingredients:

1 tube of homestyle biscuits - 10 count
½ cup powdered sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
2 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup canola oil (amount may vary based on size of pan)

Directions:

Remove the biscuits from the container and let them sit on a plate for about 5 to 8 minutes or until they are at room temperature. This will make them more pliable for making the hole in the middle of the biscuit. In each biscuit, make a hole in the middle by pushing your finger through. Shape the biscuit into a circular ring.

In a small bowl, mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon. The bowl should be a bit bigger than the size of one of the donut rings. Set aside. In separate small bowl, add the powdered sugar and set aside.

Put the canola oil in a frying pan. The oil should be a little more than about ½ inch deep in the frying pan. Heat the oil on medium heat so the oil doesn't get too hot. Drop in 4 of the donut rings. It’s a good idea not to add all 10 of the donut rings in the oil at the same time because they cook so fast and you’ll need time to coat them one at a time with sugar as discussed below.

When the donut side that is face down in the oil turns a golden color, turn it over with a pair of tongs. When both sides of the donut are a golden color, remove it quickly from the frying pan. Right out of the frying pan, put one donut at a time in the granulated sugar-cinnamon mixture and cover the entire donut (both sides) with as much of the sugar mixture as possible.

For the remaining donut rings, repeat the cooking process and heavily coat each donut in the sugar. Serve immediately while hot.
