Donuts. Warm, soft, pillowy yeast donuts. So delicious. So decadent. So irresistible.
Admit it. You want one now, don’t you?
I always envied those families that can get out of the house early in the morning to go out for a special breakfast or brunch. Unfortunately, T and the Husband both wake up starved and have no patience for things like getting dressed before eating. And store-bought donuts just aren’t the same, you know?
So if I want a treat for breakfast, I have to make it myself. Except, I don’t have the patience to wait for things like waiting for dough to rise. Or for all the dishes that come with it. That’s why I was so excited to find this donut-making cheat from Random Thoughts of a Supermom.
Seriously, it’s game changing. If I can do it, so can you. Just hope that the rest of your family doesn’t eat them all before you get one…I had to fight them off just to get these pictures!
How to Make Easy Homemade Donuts
- 1 Can of Flaky Biscuit Dough
- Vegetable Oil for Frying
- Toppings of your choice (we used powdered sugar and sprinkles)
- Frying Pan
- Small circle cookie cutter
- Rolling pin
- Prepare a cooling rack with several paper towels underneath.
- Fill a large frying pan with vegetable oil and turn to medium-high heat.
- While the oil is heating up, separate the biscuits and use a rolling pin to flatten slightly. Use a circle cookie cutter to create the hole in the center.
- When the oil is heated up, place the dough in the pan and fry until golden brown. This will only take a few seconds.
- Flip the donut over and fry on the other side.
- Move fried donuts to the cooling rack and add toppings of your choice.
- Allow donuts to cool for a couple minutes and enjoy!
These easy homemade donuts are exactly what donuts are supposed to be: warm, soft, and perfectly fluffy. They’ll make an ordinary day seem extra-special. Now I just have to resist the urge to make them more often.
