Biscuit Doughnuts

by - October 21, 2011

During the week of Fall Break, my daughter requested a special breakfast each morning.  Homemade pancakes, cinnamon toast, and biscuit doughnuts were at the top of the list. 
We love making biscuit doughnuts.

You need canola oil or peanut oil
the cheapest canned biscuits you can buy.

Begin by cutting the center hole out of each biscuit.

I am very lucky to have my Mother's doughnut hole cutter.  If you do not have one of these, you can use a tylenol medicine cup.

Put enough oil in a skillet to come up half way on the doughnuts.  Heat the oil and then add doughnuts.
They will brown quickly on one side, turn and allow to brown on the other side.  Drain each one on a paper towel.

Now the fun begins.
We made a vanilla glaze with:
 1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons milk

We also made a chocolate glaze with:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons cocoa
3 Tablespoons milk

Dip both sides in the glaze and then add sprinkles immediately after dipping.
You can also drizzle the alternate icing or sprinkle powdered sugar.

These are actually very easy to make and very good to eat!!!
