    Rick B(2)'s Note:

    This recipe came from my son's Cub scout pack. These doughnuts are a favorite treat on camp outs, for both the kids and adults!

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (12 ounce) package refrigerated biscuits
    • 2 cups vegetable oil
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


    1. 1
      Separate biscuits and stretch slightly to enlarge them. Poke your finger through center of each one to form doughnut hole.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in small size skillet (you can also use a deep fryer) to about 350°F.
    3. 3
      There should be enough oil to float the doughnuts when cooking, so the amount of oil used will depend on the pan size.
    4. 4
      Place several doughnuts in the oil and fry until golden brown on first side then turn over to finish!
    5. 5
      Place cooked doughnuts on paper towel to drain slightly. In a bowl to which you have added a mixture of the sugar and cinnamon (you can vary this depending on your own taste), place one or two doughnuts at at a time and coat both sides.

      I have made this same recipe since the 70's. However, I no longer make these because my children are grown, and my grandchildren can't have a lot of sugar. A quick and easy donut recipe, as well as tasty.

      For a quick doughnut, this is great! I would have loved more flavor but for how easy it was, and no kneading or rolling or cutting, this was perfect for me! I will be making these again!

      What a treat! I hardly ever make fried food or crave doughnuts but, something came over me on Sunday morning and new I had to give your recipe a try. They turned out great and were on the table in a few minutes. DH couldn't believe his good fortune. Fresh doughnuts and football!! I know I'll be asked to make these again. Thanks for posting this Hubby pleasing recipe!
