When my sister and I were younger, my Dad would make us delicious simple doughnuts on the weekends which we LOVED. So, this past weekend, I introduced them to my husband for our Sunday morning breakfast.
These doughnuts are so simple but so tasty you will want to make them again and again!! They are romantic enough for two or fun for the kids and the whole family!
- 1 can of biscuits. (I prefer the non-flaky ones as they will hold together better.)
- Canola Oil or other baking oil. Quantity: Enough to fill your pan with 1'' of oil.
- 4 Tablespoons of Powdered Sugar
- 2-3 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup
- 1 teaspoon of milk
To Make Doughnuts:
- Add oil to a large sauce pan or deep skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Not too hot to create smoking or popping, just to get the oil hot.
- Simply open the package of biscuits and separate out on a flat surface. Take a small circular object, I used the large end of a piping tip. Anything to create that hole in the middle of your doughnuts.
- Pierce a hole through each biscuit saving the round hole part as well.
- Test the oil temp by dropping in a doughnut hole. If it starts to sizzle and bake, the oil is ready. If not, may need to turn up the heat a little.
- Next, drop a few doughnuts in at a time into the oil but allow space for them to move around. Fry on each side, flipping half way through for 2-3 minutes each side until a golden color is achieved.
- Remove from oil and place doughnuts on paper towels to cool slightly.
- Continue until all doughnuts and doughnut holes are cooked.
- For the glaze: In a bowl combine, Powdered Sugar, Maple Syrup, and milk until creamy smooth glaze is achieved. If needed, add more maple syrup and milk for thinner texture OR more powdered sugar for a thicker texture.
- Lastly, glaze each doughnut and set on a wire rack to cool and for glaze to set up. Serve immediately.
Alas! Enjoy a deliciously sweet simple doughnut! Mmmmmm
