Total Time20 mins
Course: Breakfast
Servings: 8 -10 donuts


  • 1 Roll of Biscuits Homestyle or Buttermilk work best
  • 1 1/2 cups canola oil for frying
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  • Start heating the oil to a temperature between medium and medium-high in a medium pot. Make sure that the oil covers the bottom of the pan with about 1-2 inches of oil.
  • Open the can of biscuits. Watch out for that "pop!"
  • Separate the biscuits onto a flat surface, like a cutting board.
  • Using a donut hole cutter (or appropriately-sized syrup cap), punch a hole into the center of each biscuit.
  • Place the powdered sugar into a bowl that has a lid (tupperware works great!)
  • Mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon into a separate bowl or plate so that donuts can be dipped on each side.
  • Test the oil by placing one of the donut holes into the oil. If the hole does not start cooking right away, increase the temperature of the stove to medium-high.
  • Once the oil starts cooking the donuts quickly, start placing them in for about a 30 seconds to a minute per side, until browned and cooked.
  • As donuts come out of the oil, dry onto paper towels briefly before either shaking in the powdered sugar or covering with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  • Plate and enjoy! Best served fresh.
