    Debbwl's Note:

    These were a rare and special treat my Mother would make for my brother and I when we were young. The topping I listed is sugar and cinnamon because that is what we always had as children. But these quick doughnuts can be topped with any number of things such as a chocolate glaze, powdered sugar or even a plain glaze sprinkled with nuts.

      I grew-up with my father cooking these and now cook them for my 4 children. They love the powerded sugar and the chocolate frosting.

      I learned how to do this in Economics when I was in Jr. Hi--I am now 60+ yrs old. I liked them then and I like them now :-) We used to cut them in fours so they would be like doughnut holes--best when warm.

      Just like Mom used to make. I remembered her using canned biscuits but not much else except that we kids loved them! Easy, yummy recipe!
