Maybe you don’t need another donut after all these weeks of being home and baking, but you do need this recipe for the days when you open your front door to usher in guests once again.
Often we feel money is too tight to have guests over. We may also be too busy to think ahead to make a dessert. This recipe takes care of both of those issues! Ten donuts costs the amount of a can of biscuits and they’re finished in under 15 minutes! All you need is some oil and then some sugar to coat them in after frying!
Here’s what you need:
Granulated Sugar – Place about 1/2 cup sugar into a shallow bowl
Oil for frying – I like Coconut oil, Crisco works well, too
You need about 1 inch of oil in your pan. Bring the oil to 350 – 375 degrees.
Meanwhile, prep your biscuits. I use a melon baller to make holes in the middle of the donuts. If you want to fill them with jam, just leave them whole.
Once the oil is hot enough, place the biscuits into the hot oil and cook until the donuts are light brown. It only takes a minute or so! Brown on one side, flip over and brown the other side.
Place browned donuts on paper towel to drain. Then quickly toss them in granulated sugar. Place on platter.
If you want to fill the donuts with jam, cut a small slit in the side and spoon in a tablespoon or so inside.
I love that idea that if I have a can of biscuits in my fridge, I can make a batch of donuts in minutes, if company were to drop in, or we would invite someone over last minute! I hope you’ll soon open your door to guests and pop open a can of biscuits so you can enjoy these hot donuts!
