Donuts At Home
These are delicious and easy to make! My kids love to dip and decorate them.
I fondly remember making these when I was a little girl with my older brother and sister — my mom always had the biscuits on hand so if we weren’t baking them for dinner with warm butter and honey we were making these donuts!
Store bought biscuits
1/2 Cup unsalted butter
1 Cup powdered sugar
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon hot water
In a small bowl, melt butter in the microwave, add sugar and vanilla mixing with a fork then add water and stir until smooth, set aside.
Cinnamon & Sugar
1/2 Cup of sugar
2 Teaspoons of cinnamon
In a shallow bowl, stir together the sugar and ground cinnamon, set aside.
1/3 Cup unsalted butter
4 Ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
2 Cups powdered sugar
4 Tablespoons hot water
Chocolate sprinkles (optional)
In a medium bowl, melt butter and chocolate chips in the microwave (1 minute or until melted), add vanilla then sugar mixing with a fork, add water and stir until smooth, set aside.
Heat 2 inches of blended oil (I use Smart Balance) in a pot, to 350 degrees F.
Lay out the biscuits on a cutting board and with a 1-inch round cutter, cut out a hole from the middle of each biscuit or simply use a knife. Fry each biscuit and donut hole in the oil until golden and then flip with tongs to fry the other side (40-45 seconds total). Drain on paper towels then dip in desired topping. Serve immediately.
#1) Save unused cinnamon & sugar mixture to sprinkle on hot french toast or sprinkle on warm buttered toasted bread.
#2) Save chocolate icing, refrigerated, and spread between two graham crackers as a fun snack.
