So Easy Homemade Donuts

Donuts? Homemade with canned biscuits? YES! I'm not sure I'll be going to the donut store anymore! These were so easy and yummy! It would've been more effort to get out of my jammies, put shoes on, and drive to the donut store and back! Partially because we live in the country and the closest donut store is 7 miles away! 

Homemade Biscuit Donuts

What you'll need: 
1-2 cans of Grands biscuits (I used the whole wheat, but any kind will do) 
Oil for frying (I used Canola Oil, but Peanut Oil would also do) 

Preheat oil to 350 in an electric skillet. 
Step 1: Open up the canned biscuits. Flatten each biscuit out and cut a small hole in the middle. I used a small shot glass. Make sure to save the middles for donut holes. 

Step 2: Fry the donuts in oil until golden brown, flip with tongs and fry other side. 

Step 3: Place fried donuts on paper towels. 

For cinnamon sugar donuts: 
Mix 1tsp cinnamon and 1/4c sugar in a small bowl. 
Melt 1/4c butter in another bowl. 
Dip donuts in butter and then cinnamon sugar. 

For Glazed Donuts: 
Mix 1c powdered sugar with 2tblsp of milk and 1/4tsp vanilla. Dip donuts in glaze. Also try adding 1/4c cocoa plus 1 additional tablespoon of milk for a chocolate glazed donut! Add sprinkles if desired.
