Homemade Donuts


Oil for frying
Canned buttermilk biscuits
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar


2 cups confectioners' sugar, divided
5 tablespoons milk, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder


Heat oil for frying. In a shallow bowl, stir together the ground cinnamon and sugar and set aside. In a small bowl, mix 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, mix together 1 cup of confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup of cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons of milk and set aside. This is the chocolate icing.

Lay out the biscuits on a cutting board and cut out a hole from the middle of each biscuit. I have found bottle caps to be the perfect size. 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 icing.

Note: We usually just make the vanilla icing because it is the best one, but you may want to try the others. Enjoy!
