Super Simple Donuts Made from Biscuit Dough

Incredibly easy and so delicious.

Quick and Easy Doughnuts

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

They’re super simple to make and are sooo good.

They are actually made with the most inexpensive brand (the plain wrap or store brand) of premade biscuit dough that’s in a tube container located in the cold deli section (generally by the milk) in the grocery store.

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’re nice and warm.

Serve these yummies with a glass of milk.

Try dipping the cinnamon and sugar topped doughnuts in the milk just before each bite and I’m pretty sure you’ll be glad you did.

These scrumptious doughnuts 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.

Easy Doughnuts Ingredients

Premade biscuit dough (homestyle biscuit dough in a tube), canola oil, sugar, cinnamon, and powdered sugar

printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.

Here’s how to make it.

Biscuit Dough in Rings

For the Dough – Remove the biscuits from the container and place them on a plate until they’re at room temperature (about 5 to 8 minutes).

This will make them more pliable for making a 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.  Set aside.

For the Doughnut Toppings – In a small bowl, add granulated sugar and cinnamon.

The bowl should be a bit larger than the size of one of the doughnut rings.  Mix together.  Set aside.

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

Canola Oil in Skillet

Cooking the Doughnuts – In a large skillet add canola oil.

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

Heat the pan on medium heat.

Frying Doughnuts

To the pan, add 4 doughnut rings.

It’s a good idea not to add all 10 doughnut rings in the oil at the same time because they need to be coated with the toppings right after cooking so that the toppings will stick.

With 10 doughnuts, the toppings can’t be added fast enough to stick.

Frying Doughnuts in Pan

When the bottom side of the doughnuts turn a golden color, using a pair of tongs, turn them over.

Cinnamon and Sugar on Doughnuts

When both sides of the doughnuts are a golden color, remove them quickly from the pan…turn the heat off of the pan and move the pan to an unused burner while coating the doughnuts…then put the doughnuts into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Cover both sides of the entire doughnut with as much of the sugar-cinnamon mixture as possible.

For variety, some of the doughnuts can be coated with powdered sugar.

For the remaining dough rings, repeat the process.

Quick and Easy Doughnuts

Serve warm and enjoy.
