The Most Delicious Donuts Ever

Just a quick Sunday post today because I HAD to share these donuts with you. 

The easiest and most delicious donuts ever!

Am I the last person on earth to discover these semi-home made donuts?  They rocked my world....seriously.  I am not even a donut person, I will usually pick a good soft cookie over a donut, but these guys will beat out cookies any day. 

Thursday was Mr. Swell's birthday (which also happened to be the day Edmonton received the most snowfall in one day in over 40 years!) and instead of making him a cake this year we broke tradition and made donuts.  (Last year I made him Chocoflan, which is still one seriously delicious cake if you are in need of a new cake recipe). 

On top of being delicious, they could not be easier.  Take a can of pre-made biscuits (we used Pillsbury Country Style).  Cut a hole in the middle of each biscuit (a tall shot glass works well).  Then fry them in vegetable oil that has been heated to 350 degrees until they are gold brown on each side.   When they are still nice and hot, shake them up in a bag filled with cinnamon and sugar.  Oh, and don't forget to fry the holes too!

They remind me of the little mini donuts at the fair.

The easiest and most delicious donuts ever!

This might just become a birthday tradition in our house!

Hope you are having a great Sunday!  I'll be back on Tuesday to show you how I re-did a vanity chair and fixed up our milk paint vanity.

  1. I just made these a couple of weeks ago and they are SO dangerously easy. Every time I pass the refrigerated biscuits in the grocery store, I have to have a serious inner conversation with myself to refrain from buying them. They literally melt in your mouth...your pictures are making me shake from withdrawal...(c'mon kids we are going to the grocery store!)

    1. I know, right? How could something so delicious be so easy? My husband totally thought they were just going to taste like biscuits...but they didn't! Something magical happens to them in that oil! You make me laugh....I'm sorry my pictures caused the shakes (I think that may just be the first time anyone has ever said those words to me!)

Your comments make my day. Seriously, they make me do little dances of joy (usually in my office chair - so it's a chair dance of joy). If your profile is connected to your email address then I will email you back, otherwise please check back for a reply.
