Just last year I started using my canned Biscuits for Biscuit Donuts.
This is what you’ll need:
Biscuits, canned (Pillsbury)
Oil for frying
Candy Thermometer (or your best judgement)
Paper Towels, for draining
Getting Started is easy:
- Take your biscuits out of the can, separate them, and lay them on foil on the countertop.
- In the meantime, I want you to get out a pan – a pot or a saucepan, and put about 2″ or so of oil in it. Please please please make sure you don’t leave it unattended – and even more, turn the handles in on the stove so the little ones don’t pull it down!
- Use a round glass or a medicine bottle to cut into your biscuit. Keep the outside – that ‘ll be your donut. Keep the inside, you can fry that too — that’ll be your donut hole. Just roll the center hole and shape it in a ball – to resemble a donut hole.
- When the oil is hot – about 375 degrees with a candy thermometer, gently slide the biscuits in, & fry the biscuit (or look alike donut) about 1 minute on each side. Gently flip. Fry about 1 minute on the other side.
- Take out the biscuit donut, and the biscuit donut hole, and lay them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain them.
At this point, you have 2 options:
- You can glaze them, with chocolate or buttercream…
- You can do what I do and toss them in a Hefty OneZip and shake them up with a mixture of cinnamon & sugar.
If you do the glaze, it’s super easy. Use a few tablespoons of butter, melt on stove with a good 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, then stir in powdered sugar, a bit of vanilla & a bit of water.
Super easy, super yummy…….and guaranteed to make you a hit with your kids. I promise!
