  • 1 can biscuits I use the jumbo flaky biscuits
  • 1/2 stick butter or 4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup melted
  • 1/2 to 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon more or less


  • Divide the biscuits and flatten out on counter top.  Make a hole in the center of each one either with the tip of a knife or a hole cutter.  Dip the donuts and the holes in melted butter and then in the sugar and cinnamon combined.  Place on sprayed baking sheet or on parchment paper and bake in preheated 375 degree oven for about 12 minutes. Makes 8 to 10 donuts and 8 to 10 holes depending on how many are in your can.

Fried Donuts Instructions

  • Heat cooking oil in skillet, cut hole in biscuits, drop biscuits and holes in hot oil.  Cook until brown on one side, turn and finish cooking.  This only takes a few seconds.  Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.  Sprinkle on or dip in powdered sugar or cinnamon and sugar combination.  Can melt chocolate chips and spread on donuts.  Use your imagination and add sprinkles. Makes the same amount as above.
