could having the olympic swimming trials last night be any better way to get this week started?? i mean… c’mon! ryan lochte in a speedo. and not one of those creepy speedos. he’s just beautiful.
and for the record… i’m not just jumping on the ryan lochte bandwagon now. i’ve been on the bandwagon since he competed in athens. him and aaron peirsol had this college (at the time) girl glued to the swimming competitions.
what does that have to do with biscuit donuts? absolutely nothing. unless you count that these donuts were something my mom made for me growing up and i called her to tell her to watch the trials because ryan lochte is hot.
so biscuit donuts. i’ve been seeing these float around pinterest and it kinda bums me out. i mean i can’t have expected no one else in the world to know about this but growing up, i felt like this was the coolest idea ever. i really don’t know where and when my mom discovered this but these donuts were a hit for me growing up… and to be honest still are. they are like the simplest breakfast EVER. like seriously. i don’t think anything is as simple as these are. and they’re super yummy.
- 1 can biscuits – you can use your favorite but just make sure they’re not the “flaky” kind
- 1/2 c powdered sugar
- 1/2 c sugar
- 1 tbs cinnamon
- oil, for frying – use a neutral oil like vegetable or canola
- 1″ round cookie cutter – yes i am well aware that this is not an ingredient but you need it
- preheat your oil in a large pan / skillet to 325F.
- mix together your sugar and cinnamon. put in a ziploc. put the powdered sugar in another ziploc.
- cut the center of each biscuit out with the cookie cutter. this will give you a donut and a donut hole.
- drop the biscuit dough into the hot oil and fry on each side until golden brown. this goes really quickly. remove the dough from the oil and let drain just a quick second. put in the ziploc of your choice of topping and shake well.
see. super super super easy. like you can have breakfast on the table in less than 10 min total. if you wanted to get really fancy you could make a glaze for some glazed donuts or even a chocolate ganache topping. but i like to keep things simple; the powdered sugar holes are my favs. and let’s be honest, when you’re making them for kid(s), like my mom did, the faster you can get these to the table, the better.
