Homemade Donuts!

I found this recipe on my friends' blog,  Ashley's Busy. These homemade donuts are TO DIE FOR! So good, worth every calorie! I made them on Saturday morning and needless to say, Mike was a very happy guy! I also felt good about eating it because I felt that since I made the sugar coating and fried them myself, that I knew they were 100% good even though they were not 'good' for my bootie!

Here is the recipe and be warned, you will love them and want them again and again!

  • A  can of Pilsbury Homestyle Grands! Biscuits (NOT the flaky ones)
  • canola oil
  • sugar
  • ground cinnamon
  • cocoa powder
  • POP open the can of biscuits and lay them on a plate
  • take a butter knife and cut a circle in the middle of the biscuit
  • heat oil in a skillet to about 350 degrees (I poured the oil about halfway up the height of the donut)
while the oil is heating, prepare sugar coatings:
  • in one plate mix sugar and cocoa powder. I would estimate 1 part cocoa to 4 parts sugar.(depending on how chocolate-y you like things)
  • in another plate mix sugar and ground cinnamon. (Just mix it until you think it looks yummy, you really can't go wrong)
Now back to the donuts:
  • Don't forget to put the donut holes in the frying pan
  • Once the oil is hot enough, fry one side of the donut for 2 minutes (or until golden brown) 
  • Fry the other side of the donut for another 2 minutes (or until golden brown)
  • Once fully golden brown, CAREFULLY, take the donuts out and sprinkle with your sugar coating of choice.
*Tip: Even though it is tempting to, don't sprinkle too much sugar coating, a little sprinkle goes a long way!

Now, visit Ashley's Busy, Make Donuts and ENJOY!
