(side note…I didn’t have a 1-inch-diameter cookie cutter, but found a better way :) fortunately the bottle was empty when we woke up that morning)
What other recipe to end on (don’t worry, the recipes will keep coming, I mean from this cookbook: The Deen Bros. Cookbook, which I highly recommend buying) then this one — Easy Biscuit Doughnuts! Homemade donuts…yum!
I have memories watching my mom make these in the summer outside while camping. Also, heading to the neighbors occasionally to devour them with the neighbor kids while our moms continued to ‘toss’ biscuit after biscuit into the hot oil. (And then running around the neighborhood the rest of the day working them off…ha, like I purposefully did that!)
Well, to say the least, yum and soooo simple! I may have to make these for little Regan when she gets old enough to eat them, a special treat on occasion.
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
veggie oil, for frying
1 12-oz tube buttermilk biscuit dough
In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Set aside
Fill a wide, shallow pan with 1 inch of oil (preferable electric skillet). Heat the oil to 370.
Meanwhile, arrange the biscuits on a baking sheet. Using a 1-inch diameter round cookie cutter (or whatever you can find to make the hole in the donut…see picture…), cut out the center of each biscuit. (Save the scraps to make bite-size doughnut holes.)
Drop the doughnuts into the hot oil and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown, turning doughnuts if necessary. Transfer the doughnuts immediately to a baking sheet lined with paper towels and sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar. Serve warm.
Makes 10 doughnuts
