Time To Make The Donuts
Donuts are a favorite breakfast food; but I love homemade breakfast.
Glazed Donuts from Canned Biscuits
What ya gonna need:
The amounts depend upon how many donuts you desire, the following is for 10 Donuts and 10 holes.
1 can biscuits ~ the Cheap kind work the best (Always Save or Pillsbury or Best Choice)
You don't want the flaky kind--they come apart.
3-4 cups oil for frying
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 TBSP +/- water to make glaze
Here is what ya do:
Put oil in pan you will use to fry and heat until a single drop of water bubbles
Gently pull biscuits to stretch, you don't want them to separate but you want them thinner then they start. Using a soda bottle cap or a small shot glass cut a circle out of the center. Save this it makes the Donut hole. Drop biscuits into hot oil, frying until brown, flip and do the other side. This takes about 3 minutes each side.
While frying you can make the Glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar mixed with 1/4 TBSP of water +/-
You are wanting to have it easily drizzly, not to liquid or too stiff. It is a judgement call.
When Donuts are cooked, place them on a paper or clean dish towel to drain excess oil. Pour glaze over them while they are still warm.
ENJOY! Don't forget to fry the cutouts too!!
Chocolate Glaze: add dash of CoCoa Powder
Use food coloring to make festive colors (pink pleases granddaughters)
Cinnamon Sugar: add pinch of Cinnamon to glaze
Iced: Put different cake icings in small bowls and set on table with unglazed donuts. Let everyone choose their own. Also can add candies for cookies.
You are only limited by your taste and imagination!!
