Easy Homemade Donuts

Have you ever craved warm donuts on a Saturday morning?? Come on, you know you have! Feel intimidated by making your own? What if I told you that you can make your donuts…and eat em, too! 

Easy Homemade Donuts

We actually don’t eat too many donuts in our house. I wish we could, but I always hear my Grandmother saying. “a moment on the lips, forever on the hips”! She was so right…ha!

Anyway, my sweet baby girl turned 3 and that’s a reason to celebrate. What better way to celebrate than homemade donuts. Those donuts…just a can of biscuits. Yes, you heard that right. Any biscuit (as long as they are NOT the flaky layered biscuits) will work. Lay them on a cutting board, cut out a small hole in center, fry, then dip in sugar. That’s it. These could be topped with glaze, chocolate icing, powdered sugar, or cinnamon and sugar blend.

  1. 1-2 cans large buttermilk biscuits
  2. 1/2 cup sugar
  3. 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon
  4. peanut or canola oil for frying
  5. optional

  2. Using a small (1/2-1 inch) circular cookie cutter (knife also works), cut out the center of the biscuits.
  3. Fry the biscuits in about 1-2 inches of oil. Once browned, flip them over and brown the opposite side. You can also fry the holes to make donut holes.
  4. Once cooked, place the donuts on a paper towel to soak up the excess grease.
  5. Dip in sugar mixture of choice and serve warm!
