Canned Biscuit Doughnuts

We made these tonight for a quick family treat , I didn't make any icing this time , just tossed the dougnuts in cinnamon sugar. These are super easy. I cut a center hole with a knife and they turned out perfect. It is a great way to use up those biscuits when they are on sale.

Canned Biscuit Dough Donuts and Holes


For the doughnuts:

Peanut oil, for frying ( I used Canola Oil)
2 cans large buttermilk biscuits


CInnamon Sugar:
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder
5 tablespoon milk, divided
2 cup confectioners’ sugar, divided
Chocolate sprinkles
Colored sprinkles

Heat 2-inches peanut oil in a large pot or dutch oven to 350 degrees F.
In a shallow bowl, stir together the sugar and ground cinnamon, set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar, 2 tablespoons of milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, set aside. This is the vanilla icing.
In another bowl, whisk together 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar, 1/4 cup of cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons of milk, set aside. This is the chocolate icing.

Lay out the biscuits on a cutting board and with a 1-1/2-inch round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out a hole from the middle of each biscuit.( I used a knife ) Fry them in the oil until golden and then flip with tongs to fry the other side. You can even fry the donut holes. Drain on paper towels and then toss in the cinnamon-sugar or glaze and sprinkle as desired.
Yield: 16-20 servings Prep time: 30 minutes Cooking Time: 2 minutes
Happy Monday Night!

Ease of preparation: Easy

Anissa- Do you mind if I link to this. I still have lots of biscuit dough from the Albies sale and maybe others could benefit from your recipe.
