Donuts are a favorite amongst us all.. but lets me real here, no one has time for yeast to leaven and to clean kitchen aid mixers..
In this day and age we need something quick and easy… most importantly, not a large mess!
2 16.3 oz containers of pillsbury homestyle biscuits
canola oil to fry (about 2 cups)
toppings of your choice:
cinnamon sugar, sugar and cocoa powder, powdered sugar, classic glaze (recipe at the bottom*)
1. Heat your oil over medium high heat in a large frying pan. The oil should reach up to the side of each donut.
2. Pop open your biscuits. Now, regain your consciousness.. Is it just me or do those container scare the crap out of you!? Sheesh.
3. Separate your biscuits and, using the palm of your hand, squish one down until thin and use your index finger to poke a hole in the middle. Once you do, use your thumb to spread the hole larger to create the look of a donut. (yes, right now it is super thin, but it will grow when cooking, trust me) Put it into the hot oil. turn once golden brown. Repeat this with all of your dough.
(be sure not to over crowd the pot, only do 3/4 at a time)
4. Remove carefully from the oil and place on to a paper towel. Now is the time to put your toppings on! If you want cinnamon sugar (Simply mix together cinnamon and sugar) sprinkle that on right away.. for the cocoa sugar, powdered sugar and *glazed donuts let them cool slightly.
Disclaimer : Enjoy responsibly, I guarantee you will want to shove multiple donuts in your mouth at once.. please refrain. One at a time is the way to go! Also, please let them cool off. You will be tempted to bite them straight from the oil, this may cause your mouth to burn thus taking away from the amazing flavors you are destined to taste!
*Casey’s Classic Glaze :
1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
1/4 cup of milk
1. Mix two ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth.
I hope you try this recipe, and others!
