All you'll need are 3 things:
- a can of biscuits
- some hot cooking oil
- whatever you want to use for toppings. Canned icing rocks!
1) Open up your can of biscuits and separate them, poking a whole in each biscuit (I just use my finger) and stretch slightly. If they break, just make 1/2 rounds.
2) Heat cooking oil in pan till about 350 and drop biscuits in.
3) After about 30 seconds, you'll notice the bottoms are turning a golden color. Flip biscuits and turn off heat. Remove from oil once golden brown.
We like toppings so although they are optional I like to add them. I use pre-made cake frosting. I always have open cans in the fridge so I just scooped out some chocolate, vanilla and red colored vanilla frosting and iced the tops of the donuts while still warm. I also added colored sprinkles. Decorate them however you like.
Notice I didn't say what kind of cooking oil. I've used peanut, canola and corn oils and they all turned out great. Next up I'm trying coconut oil. I'll leave the oil type up to you, but remember when you use an oil with a lower smoke point you'll need to heat it to a lower temperature too.
Enjoy your breakfast!
