Recipe Share: Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

8:57 PM

A little something to get your week going, homemade cinnamon sugar donuts. These will maybe take you 15 minutes to make, start to finish. Yep, that's it!

I wish I could take full credit for these scrumptious "cheater donuts", however this one goes out to a Pinterest find. I told you I'm addicted. You can find the original post on my food inspiration board here, along with a whole lot of other delicious recipes waiting for me to make. I call these "cheater donuts" well because the dough is nothing more than Grands! Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits. In fact, any canned Grands! Biscuits will do as long as they aren't the flaky pull apart ones. 

The recipe is as follows:

1-2 cans Grands! Biscuits
veggie oil
1 stick melted butter

All you do is veggie oil up your pan, filling it up about a 1/2 inch or so.  

Heat your oil for a few minutes on medium heat.

While heating up, cut holes in the "donuts" with a cookie cutter or some other circular object. I actually used a small ice cream scooper and it worked great.

Next throw your biscuits into your pan filled with hot oil. Flip when golden brown (this doesn't take long, maybe 2 minutes tops). Let other side brown. 

Transfer to baking sheet lined with paper towels.

When cool enough to touch, dip each side of your biscuit into melted butter. 

Next dip into cinnamon sugar mixture (the cinnamon sugar ratio is up to you)…and that's it, you have scrumptious delicious biscuits..err donuts!

Don't forget about your donut holes though! We also fried these up. I think I liked them more than the larger donuts. They make for a good bite or two if you aren't up to a whole donut. ;) Maybe because you've already had one, or two…or three.

Are you convinced yet?
