Easy and fast donut recipe

Top Review by Homeschool Mommy

Paula Dean made these and all she did was punch a hole in the biscuit with her thumb. I use a store brand biscuit (they have no butter) so that my dairy allergic son can have donuts. My variations: 1) melt chocolate and dip the donut (then cover with sprinkles); 2) dust with powdered sugar; and 3) fry without the hole and pipe in custard, jelly, or whipped cream. Dip in chocolate or dust with powdered sugar. YUMMY!
