Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 20 Small Donuts


  • 2 Packs Buttermilk Biscuits, Refrigerated
  • 2 Cups Canola or Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Cups Granulated White Sugar

You Will Need

  • Ingredients; oil, biscuits, Sugar
  • Supplies; bottle cap, pan or skillet, long tongs, plate(s)
  • Optionally; pudding filling


  1. Open and place Biscuits on a baking sheet, plate or clean flat surface
  2. With the oil already in the pan place it on a burner that is set to medium high heat and continue with step 3
  3. With a cap from a two liter bottle remove the center from each biscuit, set centers aside
  4. With a cooking thermometer or your method of choice, test the oils temperature to confirm it is ready.With the oil hot enough your biscuit dough once added to the pan will cook rapidly adopting a golden color almost immediately
  5. Using the tongs slowly place the biscuit dough in the pan for a few seconds & then carefully flip with the tongs and cook five to ten seconds before removing
  6. Let your fresh cooked donuts stand 5 minutes or until cool to the touch before you continue
  7. Sugar coat donuts to finish, serve and eat

If you prefer baked to fried just coat with butter while still hot from oven so that your sugar coat stays on the donuts.

Remember Those Pop Outs We Set Aside Eariler

Use To...

1) To test the temperature of the oil

2) To make donuts holes or more donuts

3) To show your love, be creative & make a heart for your mom, son, dad or daughter


How Many Calories are In a Teaspoon of Sugar

15 Calories per Teaspoon of sugar, which you can burn with 13 minuets of sleeping, 20 minuets of standing,7 minuets of typing, 9 minuets of reading sitting up or 13 laying down. Cut these times in half or double the burn count just by laughing while you do it.

Here Is What I Have Learned

  • Speed up the pop out process and ditch the bottle cap for a turkey baster, remove the suction cup end and with more room than a cap you can pop out the centers with no stopping
  • Try not to exceed three or four biscuit donuts in the pan at a time because they cook fast and unless you are using a deep fryer they may get to dark or burn if not removed once its time.
  • Save left over sugar for next time and coat all your donuts by adding the sugar to a lg zip lock bag or air tight container then seal and shake. After you remove your coated donuts just close or zip to store for next time.
  • Be mindful of your metal tongs when cooking with a non stick pan, if the tongs come in contact with the non stick lining they may scratch and cause damage.

      So just cut holes out of pre-made biscuits and fry 'em? Not a bad idea I have to admit. I suppose you could just as easily make them into jelly doughnuts too. Unfortunately the only pre-made biscuits my store carries is those awful Pilsbury rolls in a can, but I have made my own from scratch and froze them, so I guess that would work.

      Awesome TY, & just had a thought- maybe try some red & green [sugar crystal] sprinkles instead of plain white sugar, for added glee? If you do this let me no how it turns out and Thank You
