The World's Fastest (and easiest) Donuts!
Recipe type: dessert
Cuisine: American
  • I can Pillsbury Biscuits
  • ¼ c flour for your counter (to avoid sticking)
  • ⅓ c granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2-3 cups vegetable oil
  • Filling of your choice (Nutella, Cookie butter, jam, preserves, etc)
  1. Place the oil in a medium pot (it needs to be big enough to put 2-3 donuts in at the same time but not too big that the oil isn't deep enough).
  2. In a small dish, combine the sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  3. Heat it on high (if you have a thermometer, it should be around 375...if not, use the dough from one of the middles to test the oil).
  4. Sprinkle some flour on your counter or cutting board so the dough doesn't stick.
  5. Open the biscuit tube and separate the biscuits
  6. Cut a hole in the middle of each biscuit (I used a cannoli tube but you can even use a sharp knife to cut a small hole out of the middle).
  7. When the oil is hot enough, place one doughnut in and wait for about 1½ minutes; turn it over and cook until golden on the other side.
  8. Place on a paper towel for a minute (and put another donut in the oil); move the warm donut from the paper towel to the sugar bowl and coat with the sugar.
  9. Enjoy warm with some preserves, ice cream, etc. If you cook the donut holes (the middle), you can pipe something yummy into the middle (put some nutella into a piping bag and "poke" the tip into the hole and squeeze the nutella into the middle as you pull out).
