I will never forget those mornings growing up when my mom would make Homemade Doughnuts. It was so exciting and gave my mom major Cool Status.
I surprised my own kids with these simple doughnuts a few years ago and…they thought I was awesome! So every few months, we make them. So easy and I always have the ingredients on hand.
- refrigerated biscuits (any brand)
- canola oil
- powdered sugar or cinnamon & sugar (optional)
Use a spoon or melon scooper to cut out a hole in middle of biscuit dough. This will be a doughnut hole.
Pour a few inches of oil into a pot and heat. Drop biscuit rings and/or holes into hot oil. They should not touch each other. Cook for roughly a minute until the bottom side of your dough is golden brown. Flip over and cook another 30-60 seconds.
Lay on paper towels to catch extra oil.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar or cinnamon & sugar depending on your preference. Several in our family prefer them plain.
Enjoy the lightest, fluffiest doughnuts around.

OMG I am trying this tomorrow morning!! =0
they are so good!
I used to make these as a teenager, thanks for reminding me! Oh so good.. Also used to sprinkle w/ cinnamon sugar. Oh the memories, my Mom always had some biscuits in the fridge, I became quite creative with them. But these & flattening the dough out & using as the base for mini pizzas were the favs w/ my friends. Thanks agian!
I too remember these from childhood. So simple but such a fun memory. Love the idea of flattening them!
I have repeatedly tried making these, and even when they’re golden brown or dark brown, the insides are all raw. If I keep them in the dryer and longer, they’ll burn. How do I fix this?
This has never happened to me. Are you remembering to cut out a doughnut hole in the center? I would also double check you are using regular hungry jack biscuits not the extra large or thick?
Turn your heat down. Your oil is too hot.
Make sure you are using canola oil or some other lighter oil. I’ve used veggie oil and since its a thick oil it didn’t quite get the insides done, like the problem you had. Good luck!
l have problems with not getting the inside of the bread done enough but the recipe is really simple.
Turn the oil down a little bit. It will allow some extra time to cook inside before becoming golden on the outside.
I just made these with coconut oil and coconut sugar and they were amazing!
Such a good and nutritious idea. I’ll have to try.
Thank you so much for the tip! I made them and they were delicious. like they were made from a Mexican Bakery (where I used to buy them) thank you again.
How hot should the oil be. For electric stove, what setting M or H?
I heat up mine on high and then lower it to medium before I put biscuits in
Going to make this for the first time 😀
My mom also made these, and all of us loved them. Those were always special mornings. Now I make them for my kids. Our tradition is to leave each donut plain and set out small ramikens of jelly, glaze, chocolate sauce (melt cream and chocolate chips), sugar/cinnamon and powdered sugar. Then everyone dips. My fav combo is jelly+glaze. One tip- I have shortened the already short prep time, I just cut each bisquit into 4 pieces and drop them as is.
