Easy Doughnuts II

Ingredients

  • 1 can of refrigerated plain buttermilk biscuits
  • Cinnamon and Sugar Mixture
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Directions

Separate biscuits-there should be about 10 in a can. Break each biscuit into fourths-so now you have 40 total pieces. Roll each piece into a ball in the palm of your hand.

Fry a few of these dough balls at a time in the hot oil. Turn over when golden brown and cook the other side. Remove from oil and drain on a cookie sheet covered with paper towel. Add more balls of biscuit dough to the oil to cook. While they are cooking, place the ones that are done into a brown lunch bag. Dump in some cinnamon and sugar, roll the top down a little, and shake to coat. Remove doughnuts from the bag and place onto serving plate.

Continue on cooking, draining, and shaking until all of the dough balls are used up.

These are so good you may want to have 2 or 3 cans of biscuits on hand to cook into doughnuts!

We used to call the Easy Doughnuts II, "Cheater's Doughnuts"! They really are good!

I have been asked to make doughnuts by my husband. I have made doughnuts in the past but he wants "beer" doughnuts this time. I have never heard of them. My mother-in-law used to have a recipe her mother had given her but can not find it. Can anyone help me with this special request?

Thanks,
Bonnie from Vermont

this is the only one that I have in my collection.

Beer Donuts

Adapted from King Arthur Flour, after a recipe by Jon Graber, Brewmaster, Mt. Hood Brewing Co.

prep time : 30 minutes to one hour

ingredients:

1 cup cake flour

1/2 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (fresh ground is best)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons dried buttermilk powder

2 large eggs

3 oz. amber ale

4 tablespoons melted butter, cooled

Preheat oven to 375 F. Melt butter and let cool. Sift all dry ingredients together into large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, melted butter and beer until well-blended. Grease the donut pan with a generous amount of butter or shortening (can also use mini bundt pan). Pour the liquid blend into the dry ingredients all at once, and mix just until blended (do not overmix, or the donuts will be tough). Fill each donut form half full. Bake in the preheated oven in the middle rack for 8-9 minutes for mini donuts, 9-12 minutes for regular size donuts. The donuts should not be browned on top. Remove pan from oven, let cool for a minute, remove from pan and roll in powdered sugar.

Yields 6 regular donuts, or 24 mini donuts.

Mix the first 6 ingredients with 7 tsp. baking powder and enough flour to make a safe dough. Roll to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a 3 inch doughnut cutter. Fry in deep hot fat (375 degrees).

I would like to make donuts baked in the oven using the food processor or bread machine for mixing the ingredients. I recently ordered a donut cutter online and it came with basic instructions for making regular donuts that are fried in grease. I would like to make them healthier by baking them in the oven, but can't seem to find any recipes online for this.

I have a food processor and bread machine and would like to use either of them just for mixing all the ingredients for the dough to make donuts you bake. Also, how do I bake the holes that are left over from making the donuts with the cutter? Any information would be helpful. If you have any links to sites that have the recipe, that would be great. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Use Pillsbury Grands refrigerated biscuit dough in the blue can. Use a plastic soda bottle cap to punch a hole in the center of each biscuit to make the donut shape. Fry in coconut oil, peanut oil, or canola oil until golden brown. Mix a couple of spoonfuls of powdered sugar and milk to make the icing. Enjoy!

I got this receipe from the internet:

Krispy Kreme Inspired Baked Doughnuts

1 cup white sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup buttermilk

3 eggs

1 tablespoon honey

1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet, or doughnut baking pan.

In a medium bowl, mix sugar, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and flour. Mix buttermilk, eggs, honey, and butter in a separate medium bowl, and stir into the dry ingredients. Then spoon the mixture onto the prepared pan in doughnut shapes.

Bake the doughnuts for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown.

You can sprinkle confectioners sugar on top of the doughnuts while they're warm or you can make your own glaze to dip them in. I had to have glazed doughnuts, so I boiled 1 cup of water and mixed in three cups of powdered sugar to make sure I'd have enough.

I was in the mood for doughnuts, and living in Hawaii I cannot get them except for the grocery store kind. So my brother found this recipe, and we thought we would try it. These are not what I had in mind at all as far as Krispy Kreme doughnuts go. They do taste ok, but they are not doughnuts. Thanks for the recipe anyway.

Wow, I think I will try your doughnut recipe but with brown sugar and whole wheat flour, it's healthier I think. Thanks!
