A quick and easy snack that kids will love, that isn't too messy and quick. Take a roll of pre-made biscuits and using a soda bottle cap take the middle of each one out, fry them for about 3-5 minutes, coat with light sugar and serve, hot fresh donuts. You can make donut holes out of the middle pieces.

I am a new subscriber and I'm looking for a fun, easy recipe for homemade doughnuts to try with my son. Some I have found are very involved and time consuming in the making.If anyone has a few good recipes, of different varieties, I would really appreciate it! Thanks
This is not a made-from-scratch recipe, but for children to help it is perfect. Start with a tube of biscuits. Pat them out just a bit, and cut a hole in the center...a bottle cap will work for this operation...the cap off a 2 liter soda bottle, for example. Heat the oil in a deep fryer, a Fry Daddy, or even in a skillet until a drop of water sizzles in the pan.Using a fork, carefully lower each donut into the hot grease (do the donut "holes" also).
I found an easy recipe here:
6 T shortening 2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar 3 t baking powder
2 eggs 3/4 t salt
1 c. mashed potatoes 1/2 t mace
1/4 c. milk 1/2 t nutmeg
cream shortening, add sugar and beaten eggs. Stir in freshly mashed potatoes and milk. Sift dry ingredients and add to first mixture.
super easy quick fry bread recipe tastes just like a doughnut
2 c flour,
3 teas bakin powder
1/2 tea salt
mix them all and let sit for 15 - 20 minutes,
pinch off golf balls sized portions and flatten to about 1/4 inch some tribes put a hole in the middle for religious significants. i do because it is easier to get them out of the oil. and just deep fry for a few seconds on each side, pat off oil and put on some cimmamon and sugar. they are just like a doughnut but so so easy. hope u enjoy.
Does anyone have a recipe for baked doughnuts similar to Krispy Kremes?
Here's a recipe for Krispie Kreme like donuts:
I got this receipe from the internet:
Krispy Kreme Inspired Baked Doughnuts
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
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.
There used to be a local bakery that made fasnacht. They are doughnuts that are eaten on Shrove Tuesday. They do not have holes in them. The ones I had were made out of some sort of potato dough. They came out light and fluffy and were sprinkled with powdered sugar. You could get them with or without some sort of filling. The filling was this lightly sweet cream. I am trying to find the recipe to see if we can duplicate it.
