Fast and Easy Doughnuts

How cold is it at your house today?  It’s an unbelievable 5* this morning at my house.  The perfect morning to make doughnuts.  You’ll be so, so glad you did!

The first thing to remember about this recipe is to use cheap canned biscuits.

Pop them out of the can – try not have a heart attack waiting for the pop – and cut them into four pieces.

Deep fry them in hot oil until they are golden brown and drain on paper towels.

While they are frying, pour about 1/2 cup of sugar in to a gallon sized ziplock baggie and add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Close it up and shake it until it’s combined.

After you drain the doughnuts, while they are still warm, drop them into the sugar/cinnamon mixture and shake until they are covered. 

Then try not to eat them all before your family figures out what you’ve created!

One thing to note about these doughnuts is that they are absolutely divine – when they are warm and just made.  But, they do not keep well.  So, just keep in mind that you’ll have to eat them all when you make them.  It won’t be hard, I promise.

Here’s the handy dandy printable recipe.
