Donuts Make Us Go Nuts
I don’t normally write about food. Well, I take that back. I write about eating food, but not so much making it. A lot of this has to do with the fact that I am not a chef by any stretch of the imagination. It has to be quick and easy for me to master it. Let’s be honest, I am here for the style. I look stylish while ordering takeout, and that is the extent of my culinary skills.
But Why Donuts?
I was scrolling Facebook and happened to see a similar recipe posted. I had a Kroger Clicklist in the making, so at 11:58 pm I added some donut making items. I made it before the midnight cut off. I know you were worried. This seemed like the perfect mom magic trick to keep up my sleeve this week. All the boys are off of school, and even though we amassed enough toys to reopen Toys R Us, I had to try and keep some excitement. This idea seemed quick and easy, perfect for my three boys!
Easy Donut Recipe
Get ready to feel like a boss in the kitchen with this quick and easy donut recipe!
1 jumbo can of biscuits (try and get buttermilk and not flaky) 1/2 cup of sugar 1 Tbs cinnamon 1/2 cup powdered sugar Peanut oil (or any oil, really, I only had vegetable oil, so that is what we used)
You can also use sprinkles, icing,etc.
Step by Step
First, start heating your oil in a deep pan. Try to get it to 350 degrees.
While the oil is heating, it’s time to prep the biscuits. WARNING: You WILL jump when the can busts open. Does anyone ever not?
Next, use any kind of kitchen device to cut a hole in the middle of each biscuit. I got really fancy and used a play-doh roller.
If you don’t want to do whole donuts, you can pull the biscuits apart and roll into donut holes!
Mix your sugar and cinnamon into a wide bowl.
Okay, it’s time to get down to business.
Start adding the biscuits to the oil. Make sure to not overcrowd. Use tongs to flip the donut after 1-2 minutes on each side.
Remove the donuts after they have been cooked on both sides for 1-2 minutes each. Place on a paper towel lined plate, or a cookie rack over a cookie sheet! I prefer the latter.
Allow the donuts to cool, lightly tapping away at the little hands trying to eat said hot donuts.
Once they have cooled slightly, dip it into the cinnamon sugar mixture. Twirl it around on both sides until covered.
Sift powdered sugar over other cooled donuts, and if you’re my son, Jack, add sprinkles!
