Hey Everyone! Today I couldn’t be more excited to share this simple and delicious doughnut recipe with you! I’ve been wanting to try the whole biscuit doughnut concept FOREVER, but simply had never gotten around to it. That is, until yesterday.
I was sitting on the couch with my husband. and as we were talking about things we want to try making, somehow doughnuts got brought up. And you guys, I love me some doughnuts. So just like that, I finally took the plunge and let me tell ya- my Monday morning definitely got better.
These are so good! I mean, I know in general pretty much anything deep fried tastes good, but I was a little skeptical about these actually tasting like doughnuts. But they totally do and it’s awesome how easy these are to make. Plus who doesn’t love doughnuts? Make these ASAP ya’ll! You won’t regret it! 🙂
Mouthwatering Biscuit Doughnuts
Step 1: Begin warming oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. I use this one by T-fal, and I love it! Makes frying things so easy!
Step 2: Using a small round shape, cut out the center of each biscuit to form your doughnuts. The round shapes you cut out will be used for your doughnut holes.
Step 3: In a microwavable bowl, begin making the glazed icing by warming 2 tbsp butter until melted. Add in sugar, vanilla, and milk, stirring well until you have reached the desired smooth consistency. Set aside.
Step 4: In a small bowl combine the sugar and cinnamon you will use to coat the doughnut holes.
Step 5: Once oil has reached 375 degrees, begin frying your doughnuts in the oil two at a time, 1 minute per side. Repeat until all large doughnuts have been fried. Once completed, add in all the doughnut holes at once and fry for 1 minute total, turning halfway through.
Step 6: Place fried doughnuts on paper towel or cooling rack with a pan underneath to drain any excess oil.
Step 7: Place large doughnuts into glazed icing one at a time, coating both sides well. Using a tong, carefully place doughnut on cooling rack. Repeat until all doughnuts have been glazed.
Step 8: Toss doughnut holes in cinnamon sugar mixture, coating well.
Step 9: Enjoy your delicious and easy doughnuts with your family or friends!
Hope your week is wonderful and thanks for stopping by! 🙂 -Cara
