If you’ve ever had difficulty with measuring and don’t want to deal with the tedious task of waiting for the dough to rise, you can go to the grocery store and pick up a can of biscuits and make your own donuts. For this, you won’t need much, but I’ll still put a list of things anyway (makes me feel like I’m actually telling you something important. . .):
2 cans of biscuits (preferably jumbo sized biscuits that are pillsbury brand)
a bottle cap
a cutting board
Your favorite flavor of frosting or powdered sugar if your not a frosting fan
Step #1: Get a large enough pot if you plan on making many and set the stove to the second hottest setting
Step #2: While the oil is getting hot, open your biscuit cans (do this with caution because you might scare the shit out of yourself. . .like me. . .) and set a few of your biscuits on your cutting board
Step #3: Take the bottle cap and press it in the middle of the biscuit to make a whole. My mom would just do it with a bottle, but the cap does the job just as well. If you would like to keep the middles after you’ve poked the hole instead of throwing the excess dough away, you can roll it up into a ball and have donut holes as well as donuts.
Step #4: Now that you’ve poked holes into all of the beautiful biscuits, if the oil is hot enough, you can begin putting the biscuits in the oil, flipping them once the side in the oil is golden brown. Repeat step 4 and 5 if you still have dough left
Step #5: Take out your frosting and get a glass bowl to put the frosting in. You’ll want to scoop out at least two or three large spoon fulls and put it in the microwave for a minute and half to two minutes
Step #6: Once you’ve done this, dip your biscuits in the frosting and . . .you have a beautiful, easy made donut
You don’t have to stop with frosting. You can add decorations like sprinkles and other things. You also, again, don’t have to use frosting and can just dust them with powdered sugar.
