We have all enjoyed these simple to make donuts. Now you can make them at home. From Copykat.com (http://www.copykat.com)
- 1 (10 count) can refrigerated biscuits
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- oil, to deep fry in
- Use either a deep fryer, or a large deep skillet.
- Be sure to add enough of oil to line the bottom of the pan a couple of inches deep.
- Heat oil to 350 degrees.
- Remove biscuits from can and fry a few at a time in the fryer.
- When browned on one side, turn over.
- When golden brown on both sides remove from oil, and drain on paper towels.
- Pour sugar into a small container, and once the doughnuts have cooled slightly toss the doughnut into the sugar, and coat on both sides.
- Be sure to fry only a couple at a time.
Like so many others I loved these as a kid but nowadays I try to cut out the fat added by frying. Instead, roll the biscuits in sugar (with or without cinnamon), place in a lightly oiled pan, and bake them as directed on the biscuit tube. Yummy, yummy, yummy!!
OH MY GOD! These were so good. These doughnuts are my favorite part of a chinese buffet, I often get a few each time I go up to the buffet. Now I can have them in the comfort of my own home and they take about 10 minutes. It doesn't get any better.
Just made these for work. I used our buttermilk biscuit mix which we almost NEVER use except for VERY special occasions. I added some cinnamon and vanilla extract to give it a less "Just fried dough" taste. I also followed the frosting recipe listed on several other food.com donut recipes (essentially one part milk to eight parts sugar... I added nutmeg, vanilla extract, and honey to this as well). Everyone thought I was a nut until they tried them.
