Can Biscuit Doughnuts

Growing up I have fond memories of my grandmother making these doughnuts
for my cousins and I. We always thought she knew everything to be able
to make us some yummy doughnuts out of a can of biscuits. I love this
recipe its easier and taste better then other homemade doughnuts. And
you can do whatever you would like as far as toppings go. And as if it
did not get any better these babies actually get softer the next day.
They remind me of Krispy Kreme, soft and delicious. They may look small
but when they start frying they get pretty big even the small holes as
well. I found the best thing that works for making the holes after
digging around my kitchen for awhile was the end of a cake decorating
tip.  I throw some sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag, add 4 of these and shake then do it until they are all done. But you can top them with whatever you like best.

2 (10 pack) canned biscuits
Sunflower oil for frying

sugar and cinnamon
powdered sugar
chocolate glaze
vanilla glaze

1. In a 8-quart saucepan on medium heat and about 3 inches of oil. Allow to candy thermometer to get to 300 before frying.

2. On a cutting board carefully lay biscuits out piece by piece. Cut a hole in the center of each biscuit and sit hole dough aside. Place each biscuit into oil, watching at all times. As soon as dough becomes golden flip it.

3.  Allow doughnuts to cool on a wire rack with paper towels below.

4. Have fun decorating anyway you like!

Yields:  20 doughnuts (plus holes)

    Samantha this must be a term us Americans use bc my friend from the UK asked the same thing :)

    Canned biscuits are the biscuit dough in a can that you bake to have ready made biscuits. So yes just the dough in a can :) .. Any type or size will work.
