I'll say it again: oh...my gosh.
These donuts are amazing. And easy. I've made homemade donuts before, and let me tell you, it's no easy task. I came across this amazing little recipe online and just had to try it. Supposedly it's something everyone but me knew about. So thanks, guys, for holding out on me.
I made 20 donuts in about 30-45 minutes, and I can tell you, they were gone in a *snap*. Let's not waste anymore time talking about this and just get right into it.
- 2 containers Grands Hometyle Biscuits. NOT the flaky kind.
- Vegetable oil
- Cinnamon/sugar mixture
Separate the biscuits and cut out the center using some sort of small cookie cutter. I didn't have a circle, so I used a heart. Cute, I know.
Go ahead and heat up the oil on medium heat. It is very important that the heat is not too high, or it will cook the outside but leave the inside all dough-y. I didn't fully submerge the donuts, but made the oil only cover about half of each donut.
Let it sit for 2-3 minutes per side and flip. They should be golden brown.
Grab a large ziploc bag and fill with cinnamon and sugar (more sugar than cinnamon). Immediately after donuts are done cooking on both sides, place them in the bag, zip, and shake. The liquid from the excess oil will help the mixture stick to the donut.
Don't even get me started. Seriously.
Love and donuts,
