Y’all. Before we even start talking about donuts, please take a moment to go check out my awesome friend Rachel’s new gorgeous site design. She’s giving away some amazing crafting goodness you won’t want to miss.
But come back soon. . . because um obvi. . . Donuts!
This recipe is near and dear to my heart because it reminds me of my childhood. I had almost forgotten about it until I saw the old familiar pillsbury biscuit cans at the grocery store. When I was a little girl, my dad would make these donuts with us kids. My brother and I would help with the frosting or powdering once the donuts were out and cooled.
These are so easy to make.
You definitely need an adult to fry the donuts, but the powdering is the best job ever for kids.
It’s amazing how quick these things cook up. Once they turn the golden color, you really are good to go.
I don’t even really have that many tips or tricks for this recipe, because it’s just that easy.
Your accompanying beverage is really up to you. I went with milk, but the hubs actually made a fresh pot of coffee as soon as he smelled the donuts.
hmm. hmm. Good.
You can also frost these with the frosting flavor of your choice, but you’ll want to make sure they cool first before frosting so the frosting doesn’t melt. Enjoy!
- 1 can of pillsbury buttermilk biscuit dough (7.5 ounces)
- 2 cups of powdered sugar
- at least 2 cups of vegetable oil
- Heat oil in a small pot on the stovetop. Test with a small piece of dough to see if it will fry.
- Using your finger, poke a small hole into the center of each biscuit.
- Carefully place each piece of dough in the heated oil. I like to use chopsticks for the donut handling.
- When you see the edges of the donut start to turn gold, flip the donut over so that it can cook evenly on each side.
- Once the donut is evenly cooked on both sides, use the chopsticks to remove the donut from the oil and place it on a paper towel.
- Once all the donuts are cooked, use a sifter to sift the powdered sugar over the freshly cooked donuts.
- Enjoy with milk or coffee!
