My friend Nick showed me this recipe a few years ago, and everyone should know it, so here it goes!
-Oil (vegetable or canola)
-One package Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits
-1/2 c. cinnamon sugar
Optional: jelly, Nutella to fill doughnuts with
If you aren’t going to fill the donuts, just follow the following instructions:
Take a medium or large sized skillet (the larger the skillet the more oil you will have to use) and heat up about an inch worth of oil on medium-high heat. While the oil is heating, break open the biscuits and seperate them. Take a small knife and cut out a doughnut hole, about one-inch wide (keep this part for doughnut holes!). Take a paper bag and pour the cinnamon sugar inside. By now the oil should be ready. Place a few doughnuts inside the skillet (about 2-4 depending on how big your skillet is) and let them fry 4-7 minutes, until they are a nice golden brown color. Flip them, and fry the other side. The same is done for doughnut holes. Take fried doughnuts and place them in the cinnamon sugar bag, then shake until fully coated. Place on a plate and eat! These are definitely best warm.
If you want to fill the donuts:
My favorite things to fill the doughnuts with are raspberry jelly and nutella, but you can fill them with frosting or whatever you’d like. Instead of cutting a doughnut hole, take the doughnut and split it 3/4 apart (the buttermilk biscuits are meant to be flaky so they will easily rip open). Fill it with your filling and seal the donut back up. The only other change is that they will take a couple extra minutes to fry.
PS- I’m working on getting pic’s up…I broke my camera a couple months ago si it’s a little harder than usual.
