Nothing too fancy today, just a recipe for some easy and delicious doughnuts. I have a couple recipes that I've used to make doughnuts from scratch. One of them is actually spudnuts, made from potatoes. Those recipes are good every now and then, but they just take a lot of time. So, when I ran across this recipe in a magazine I thought we'd give 'em a try. They are very good and perfect when you can't set aside the time to make them from scratch.
Trent was responsible for our family night treat on Monday, so he wanted to make these with a little help from me.
First, open one can of refrigerated biscuits and use your finger to make holes in the middle.
Next, pour 3 cups of vegetable oil into a large saucepan and warm to about 375 degrees. Carefully, drop in a couple doughnuts at a time and fry until golden brown on one side. Use tongs to turn them over and brown on the other side.
Carefully, remove doughnuts from pan with tongs and place on a paper towel lined plate.
Then, mix 1 c. sugar and 3 Tbsp. cinnamon together. Toss each doughnut in cinnamon sugar mixture. Trent was great at this. He made sure our doughnuts were extra cinnamony sugary!
You could make your own powdered sugar glaze and dip them in that, as well. Add sprinkles, etc. Go crazy with them if you like.
Ta Da! The finished product. They're no Krispy Kreme, but they were really yummy. Everyone liked them. I think this little recipe is a keeper. Enjoy!
