Homemade Donut Recipe

What you need:

  • Can of biscuits (the terribly simple kind from the store that no one really likes),
  • Powdered sugar,
  • Small saucepan,
  • Oil,
  • Large zip-lock bag,
  • Plate with paper towels,

What to do:

1. Pour 2-3 inches of oil in your saucepan and put it on the stove on medium/low.

2. Once the oil is hot enough, open the can of biscuits and shape the dough into any shape you want. We like to shape them into circles, figure eights, and small round balls. Drop the dough into the hot oil (be careful because the oil will splatter) and wait. The dough should rise in a few seconds, and then slowly turn brown. Once one side is brown, flip the donut over and let the other side brown.

3. When both sides are browned, take them out of the oil and place them on a plate filled with paper towels to let them cool. (The paper towels will soak up excess grease while they are cooling.)

4. Once they are cooled enough to touch (but still warm enough to eat), it’s time to give them a powdered sugar bath! Fill a large bag with two inches of powdered sugar, place the cooled donuts in the bag, zip it up, and shake well! Enjoy hot and eat right away!

My family LOVE these donuts and it is a family tradition to make them on birthdays (mine especially). I hope that y’all like this recipe and feel free to make it your own! Let me know in the comments if you make homemade donuts as well, and if so, is it different than this? What do you put on your homemade donuts if not powdered sugar? (Chocolate? Sprinkles? Frosting? Etc.?)

As always, smile, have an amazing day, and enjoy the donuts!
