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.
