Today I executed a ridiculously easy recipe. I had heard about it from some friends and seen the suggestion floating around but today decided to give it a try! I'm sure you could find fancier recipes like this out there, but this is exactly how I got it done.
- 2 cans of large biscuits
- enough oil (I used Canola) to fill the bottom of a large pan roughly 1"
- powdered sugar
- vanilla extract
I began by heating the oil (I found that heating it at medium heat and reducing it to low made for quick heating and slow enough cooking for the insides to be properly baked) and cutting holes into the center of each biscuit. I suggest keeping one can in the fridge while you cut the other because the colder the biscuit, the easier the cut.
I then fried the donuts at roughly 1 minute (or a nice golden brown) per side before taking it out and letting them cool. I fried the donut holes similarly but obviously for less time.
For the glaze I placed 2 c. of powdered sugar, 2 tsp of vanilla, and 1/3 c. butter in a sauce pan all at once, stirring on low heat until butter was melted and a paste was formed. Then I added 1 tbs of water at a time until I reached a consistency I liked (think gravy not syrup). I dipped each donut and hole into the glaze and let them rest on a cookie sheet for a moment before serving them warm!
The ensuing delight...
