Most Saturday mornings my children start pleading to go to the bakery. I, however, just want a relaxing Saturday morning at home, sipping coffee, and planning out the weekend. As I would sit trying to make up some excuse as to why we couldn't go, I remembered my mother would make homemade donuts for my siblings and me on cold Chicago mornings. In honor of a sweet childhood memory, I tried my hand at making my own ~ They were so simple and yummy!
2 cans of biscuits
2 C. confectioners sugar
3 Tbs. water
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
vegetable oil for frying
Heat skillet on medium and pour in oil. I pour in about 1/3" deep. You just kind of have to eyeball it...
Now open the biscuits and layout on wax paper. Cut out centers with a small round cookie cutter - or anything else you can find. I used the screw on cap to a Ginger Ale bottle. Keep the middles to make donut holes!
In a small bowl mix confection sugar, water, and vanilla. Set aside.
When oil is hot (I stick the end of a wooden spoon in the pan and if bubbles appear around the spoon, its ready) carefully drop in 2 - 3 donuts at a time.
Stand right by the donuts as they will cook quickly, when one side is golden brown, flip to the other side. Tongs are really useful for this.
Take out cooked donuts and place on a paper towel.
Finally, drizzle the donuts with your glaze and sprinkle with some extra confectioners sugar.
I'm more than happy to share this project with you and hope that you enjoy the process of creating! If you liked this project leave me a comment! Thanks so much~ Susannah
