Time to make the Donuts
We are digging out after winter storm Saturn (yep, the Weather Channel had a name for this storm) came through last night and dumped around 7 inches of snow on us from 8pm last night until daylight this morning
This morning Cally and I made Donuts. I love donuts! Especially warm Donuts. These are super easy to make as they are made from Jumbo Buttermilk Biscuits from a can.
These little buggers are so easy to make and oh so good. My favorite is the powdered sugar donut holes.
Super Easy Donuts
1 can Jumbo Buttermilk Biscuits (I used Meijer brand)
Oil for frying
Toppings of your choice
Heat oil or deep fryer until oil reaches 350 degrees (I used a skillet and a candy thermometer)
Take each biscuit and flatten slightly, cut hole in center of each biscuit. Save the center for donut holes.
After oil reaches 350 degrees. Carefully place the biscuits and donut holes in the oil and fry each side for about 30 seconds or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and then put toppings on warm donuts.
We used powdered sugar (these were my favorite) cinnamon sugar and glazed with sprinkles. For the glazed donuts I put about 1/2 C of Vanilla can frosting in microwave for 20 seconds, or until a little runny. Then dip your donuts in the glaze and sprinkle the tops.
