Recipe: Canned Biscuit Donut Holes

Have you ever wanted something sweet late late at night and you have nothing but it's too late to find a donut shop open and all the stories are closed? Yeah? Me too. I saw this homemade donut hole recipe a few months back on Fb and so when I bought a can of biscuits, I thought I'd try it. 

You will need:
1 can of Grands Buttermilk biscuits. The smaller cheaper biscuits just won't work for this recipe. 
oil
sugar
cocoa powder
powdered sugar
cinnamon
vanilla extract

Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces and roll into balls. Fry in about 1 inch of oil. Turn so that all sides get golden brown. They fry fast so it only takes 2-3 minutes. Let cool and then dip into sauces. 


Dipping sauce recipes:

Cinnamon Sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar and a tsp. cinnamon. Mix thoroughly and roll donut holes into mixture. 


Glaze

1/2 cup Powdered sugar
1 Tbsp milk
1tsp vanilla extract
Mix thoroughly. If too thick add 1/2 tsp milk at a time until desired consistency. Roll donuts in mixture and set on plate to harden.


Cinnamon Powdered sugar

1/2 powdered sugar
1tsp ground cinnamon
Mix thoroughly. Roll donuts in mixture.


Chocolate Glaze

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. Cocoa powder
2 TBSP. milk
Mix thoroughly until cocoa powder is completely mixed in. Roll donuts into mixture. Put donuts on plate. 

Keep all donuts in refrigerator until eaten. 

They came out really good. 2 of Ken's friends came over right after they were done and Ken gave them a couple. They were a big hit. They sure didn't last long. lol 

Does this sound like something you would make?

    1. That's a good idea too. Probably a little less work too.

  3. I've seen this idea, but wondered if it seemed like a biscuit consistency?

    1. No, not really a biscuit consistency. That's why you have to use Homestyle or buttermilk style and not the flaky layers style biscuits. That way it just has a dough consistency and not a flaky biscuit consistency.

  6. My father used to make me these when I was a little girl, except a little different. I loved them, and I always wanted to make them. But I always get sidetracked and never looked up the recipe. So, now I know! Haha!

  8. These look so good! I can't wait to try them, even though I'm hopeless at baking. I'd probably burn water given half the chance.

  10. Looks good but I wouldn't make it because I'd be tempted to eat them all and that wouldn't be good....
