These were delicious! Super easy, but your family will be impressed :) However, they do not keep well, definitely eat them when you make them.
As a single Mom on a 'really' tight budget I started making these about twenty years ago and still do every so often but have passed this on to kids and grandkids.. great fast treat..:) With so many varitations it's great fun!
Hey got a quick question. I have 3 5 count packages of Grands homestyle biscuits for the recipe. Can I still do the same amount of oil or do I need to up that and everything else in the recipe? Was just wondering. Thanks.
So easy, and yummy too! My son is highly allergic to eggs, and never had a doughnut before this (he's 18!). Nice to have something new and simple to make for him. Next time will try chocolate glaze!
I made churros from this recipe by just cutting the biscuits in half and gently rolling them into approx. 1" diameter sticks and then frying them in the hot oil until golden on all sides. I did not add any of the sugar or cinnamon. They were great dipped in rich hot chocolate.
omg... i will never buy doughnuts again!!! unless they build a krispy kreme down the road from me. try this today! you will be glad you did! : )
THESE ARE GREAT, we did a few differnt variations, I tried it with sugar, sugar and cinnomon, sugar and pumpkin pie spice, powdered sugar with above, and the holes, we mixed, coco powder, powdered sugar and a touch of nutmeg (yummy). We also tried a little cardamon (ground) with the cinomon and clove and a little ginger (powdered) with the pow sugar for a nice taste. The holes also dip well into a glaze, we mixed powdered sugar, a tiny amount of milk, lemmon or lime extract for a tart/sweet taste that was great. I bet you can't tell I like these. Also, for years, I have been cutting up flour tortillas into triangles, cooking them for a few min in oil, and placing them in a bag with sugar and cinnomon. I like the fine granulated turbanado for this. If you like fried bread, this is one of the best, easiest recipies I came across. LOVE IT>
I wasn't sure how using biscuits would work to make donuts, but oh my, was I in for a delightful surpise. These were awesome. I live about 45mins for a donut shop, so this was a great recipe find. We can actually get them fresh and warm now without loading up the whole herd that is my family. The sugar was perfect for me, but a little too sweet for hubby. We are going to try to make a glaze for the next batch. I encourage you to try these, they really were amazing. I did find on a gas stove though, med-low was too hot in the iron skillet, and needed to cook second batch on low.
These are my favorite doughnuts. My mom used to make these when we were kids and they are totally delicious and I've continued making them. Would put the sugar and cinnamon in a small brown paper bag and my daughter would "help" by shaking the doughnuts in the bag. Definitely serve them warm.
