Who doesn’t love a yummy sugary doughnut? I must let you in on a secret, I’ve never made doughnuts! So, when Marci told me about these seriously easy doughnuts that she made, I immediately thought we needed to share them with you! If you are like me, your days are pretty busy with family and kids, so finding a short cut that saves time and fun is always a good thing in my world.
I like the donut holes better than the whole donut. :o)
So, do you know the history of the doughnut? I guess there are few theories in regards to the origin. Some suggest that it was invented by Dutch settlers in North America. But, Hanson Gregory, and American claims he invented the ring shaped doughnut in 1847. He was aboard a ship and was not happy with the raw center. He claimed that he punched hole in the middle and the first doughnut with a hole was created.
Let’s get started making these easy donuts.
One package of Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuit
Sugar and cinnamon or topping of choice. Mix in a medium size bowl.
Marci, let me know that the Flaky Layers Buttermilk package is not the one that you want but rather the Buttermilk Biscuit ones. I’ll replace this photo in a bit.
As funny as it is, this is seriously the hardest part of making the donuts. I ended up having my son pop the container of biscuits. So, you take off the outer label and then the seam is exposed. At the seam place, your spoon up against it and the cardboard will give, and the dent will cause the container to have a little explosion, and the biscuits will pop out. It is magical!
Next, you’ll want just to lay them flat and place your bottle top in the middle of the dough and cut a hole in the middle. At this point place about 3 inches of oil in a small pan. Heat the oil on a medium to low flame.
Ah, you can’t forget the donut holes! I just rolled them in a ball and fried them up too. They are so delicious and small that you can eat a few and not feel too guilty!
