Easy "drop" Doughnuts

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mamas Kitchen Hope

My husband can remember standing on a chair at the table to be tall enough to watch his Grandma make doughnuts. Unfortunately I can't find her recipe but this one is from a different German Grandma and sounds much easier than what he describes to me!

I created an account just to say how amazing these doughnuts are! My two-year old son asked for doughnuts for breakfast this morning. I was just going to make simple doughnuts from canned biscuits but we didn't have any canned biscuits. I found this recipe, and it's incredibly easy and oh-so delicious! The only change I made was substituting cinnamon for nutmeg because I'm not a fan of nutmeg and I didn't have any on hand. So yummy! A definite hit in my house for sure!
