  • 1 can biscuits you can use any kind as long as they are not the Flaky Kind!
  • cooking oil

For the Topping:

  • butter
  • cinnamon, sugar, powdered sugar whichever you prefer


Whip it up:

  • Simply cut a hole out of the middle of each biscuit (I used a water bottle lid because I did not have anything laying around that would center out the inside of the small canned biscuits)
  • Keep the holes to the side you can always make Mini Donut holes 😉
  • Fry them in a skillet on med/low heat until they get golden brown.
  • Lay Biscuits on a paper towel to drain oil & cool!Melt your butter in a separate shallow bowl & in another shallow bowl you can create your own mix (sugar, cinnamon, powdered sugar)
  • Dip one side of biscuit into butter then sprinkle your topping on each side I like a very light amount of sugar but of course it is to your liking!


You can also make your own glaze by using Powdered Sugar + Milk the measurements depend on how thick you like your glaze. I have also seen people use melted chocolate icing as well!

  1. I used to make these, but instead of cutting the hole out, I would just stretch them out a bit and poke a hole with my fingers. They taste awesome!

  2. I am super excited to try these out! It couldn’t be easier and has to be much healthier then buying store made donuts. Thank you for sharing. I will be sharing this one with everyone!
