I found a little secret today while stumbling through the internet and my jar dropped. I may be a little late to figure this out, but did you know that you can make doughnuts with just a can of Pillsbury Grand Biscuits? Say what girlfriend?! Yeah you heard me, simplest thing ever! So seeing as I had the whole afternoon off and a girls spa night planned tonight, I thought "why not make doughnuts to devour while i'm getting a facial?" Brilliant idea, I know, no applause needed. I thought I would share this brilliant idea with you lovely people, so here you go!
1 or more can of Pillsbury Biscuits (use anything other than the flaky layers)
1/2 inch of vegie oil in a pan for frying
Cinnamon and sugar mixed together in a bowl
4-5 Tbl. of melted butter in a bowl
1. Cut holes into the middle of the biscuits to make the doughnut shape. Save the middles to make doughnut holes later.
2. Wait for the oil to heat up. Helpful hint: flick some cold water onto the oil. If it starts to crack and bubble, it's ready! The more bubbles, the hotter the oil.
3. Place the doughnuts in the oil and wait for one side to get golden brown then flip over and do the same to the other side. Set aside and let cool. Repeat this step until all doughnuts are fried. Let the oil heat back up in between each refill.
4. Take the doughnuts and cover both sides with butter, drip off the excess and cover in the sugar mixture.
5. Eat and enjoy.
Happy weekend everyone!
