what i made for monday-naughty donuts

I apologize for what I am about to tell you and encourage you to do.
I made Doug naughty, naughty donuts to take to work today.  
Why are they naughty?  Because they are WAY too easy for the amount of amazing that they taste.
Talk about melt in your mouth amazing and buttery and oh so sweet, sweet, heavenly goodness.
They ARE GOOD. 
Want to make some?
You need canned biscuits (anything BUT the flakey layer kind).
Melted butter in a shallow bowl(4 tbls per 8 biscuits give or take) 
Sugar & Cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
Mixed together in your favorite proportions...I like a nice medium brown mixture.

Veggie oil to fill your pan up to about 1/2in or so. 
Heat up oil for a few minutes on medium heat.
While it is heating up, cut holes in the donuts with a cookie cutter or some other circular object
(stars would be cute too!)
When one side is golden brown, flip with tongs.  When that side is golden remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined pan or plate.
When the donuts have cooled enough to handle...using your fingers dip one side in the melted butter, let the excess drip off, dip in cinnamon and sugar mixture.  Get it nice and coated.  Flip over and repeat for the other side.  
Done.
I ate all of these.


Just kidding.  I sent them to work with Doug.  But I made a practice batch on Saturday to see if they would still be amazing a day later...and they were. :)  And I had more of those than I should.

You are welcome.  Or I'm sorry.
Pin It!

Keri Fabin said...

Oh, wow. My taste buds thank you for sharing, my hips do not. I have to try these babies!

April b said...

Amazed.

Diana said...

Canned biscuits are an amazing thing!

Beth at Odd Girl Out said...

my dad used to make these for us growing up. i loved when he'd let us shake them in a brown paper bag to get the cinammon and sugar all over nice and good. so yummy!

cbryan said...

yum! I've made donuts that way but I haven't tried dipping them in butter with cinnamon sugar. That sounds so good! I usually either spread some cinnamon sugar honey on one side, or I make glaze with powdered sugar, vanilla, and a little lemon juice.

I LOVE making Pioneer Woman's French Breakfast Puffs and there are never any leftovers. But this looks so much quicker when you dont have a ton of time. Less mess too. Thanks for sharing!
One of the only sweets my husband likes are donuts. I'll have to make these for him:)

BeccaMarie Designs said...

THANK YOU for sharing how you made them!

Amy Bell said...

i think i am literally gaining weight reading your posts this month!!! the kids saw this on the computer and wanted some for tomorrow....oh. no.

love love all your wonderful ideas!!!!

Kristi said...

Thanks for visiting my poor neglected blog. I'm tickled that you still have me on your radar. :-) For some reason, my blog is not letting me post comments (on my OWN blog).

Lipstick Momma said...

Those look delicious! I think I slobbered a little bit on my chin. You know, these would be a nice treat for Christmas morning! Thanks for sharing!

LibraryGirl62 said...

We make these too, but OMG...I never thought about dipping these in butter...oh yeah...

Lacey Jane said...

I am pregnant and I lovehate you SO MUCH RIGHT NOW ZOMG.

Retro Redux Furniture Gallery said...

Totally making this! And by the way, you are the inspiration behind me making my husband weekly treats to take to work. It seems like such a nice way to give back to him for all his hard work at the hangar every day. ~Heather

Amy said...

I love that you send treats with him to work on Mondays. Such a sweet blessing to him and his co-workers.

debi9kids said...

I make these all the time! SO easy and yummy :)

ps Came over from my BlogHer ads. You're featured :)

Lea said...

Wow! Such an awesome idea. I am totally doing this for my family over Christmas! Love you blog by the way!

Kelli @ RTSM said...

We made these a while back minus the butter...and now I think we need to have them again with the butter! Butter makes everything better:)

Faith said...

I just made these. SO glad that after making chicken and dumplings last night I saved the leftover biscuits rather than throwing them out.
These were amazing and so easy to make. I used the centers to make doughnut holes for my 4 year old, and while the holes were cooling off I stuffed in some chocolate chips. I'm making more tomorrow, thanks!

RebeccaBrophy said...

My husband had friends over last night to watch the game and I whipped these up in 10 minutes - they were a huge hit! What a good idea :)

Dane said...

I just made these! They were terrific, and the first donuts I've ever made. Thank you so much! I blogged them here, if you'd like to see.

Marcia Wilwerding said...

Aw, haven't seen these in years! My sweet mama used to make these for breakfast when we had our birthday sleepovers. She frosted some with chocolate icing, some with vanilla icing, and some rolled in cinnamon sugar. I think she just stuck her thumb through the middle and made a hole, though. Thanks for the memories.

Gayle said...

Oh my, my mother used to make a version of these. We just snpipped them with a scissors into 3rds and made doughnut holes!! These "look" much fancier!! lol will have to try your way!

Christine said...

WOWZA...Hubby THANKS you for these...they are delish!

mamawcindy said...

I can't wait to make these for little Grandchildren. Thanks for Sharing! Just became a follower of yours. :0)

Debbie said...

Found you on pinterest. Amazing, my mom made these for us when we were kids (probably more than 30 years ago). We were pretty poor back then so this was a huge treat for us. I think we just fried them in oil and dusted with powdered sugar. Thanks so much for the great memories this brings back. ;)

Mandy Meador said...

If I enjoy these donuts as much as I enjoyed reading about your experience making them, I am going to be HAPPY!

Soup-a-Woman said...

OMG. Made these this morning on a snowy day. Dangerously easy and unbelievably DELICIOUS!!

Sharing My Thoughts said...

Love these. Momma made them when I was a little girl but we always used powdered sugar and cinnamon. I'd like to try them this way. :-)

Jessie said...

I blogged about your donuts here:

Casey said...

These were AWESOME!! I was NOT expecting these to turn out as awesome as they did. I cut out a hole using a shot glass, then whipped them up and was a little hesitant since I couldn't find an oil temp to shoot for and I don't ever fry things, but I kept my cast iron set to "6" on my cooktop and started cooking with a donut hole until I saw some bubbles and it started to brown. Quickly got a feel for how to cook up the rest. As for dressing them up... Grabbed a paper bag and dumped in the cinnamon and sugar and shook away. These were so quick and easy I felt like I was cheating rather than making somehthing from scratch! Thanks so much for sharing!

claire said...

i have to make these next week- i mean HAVE TO!

THANKS FOR SHARING!

Kelly said...

We use to make these at my grandma's house 38 years ago!:). Sweet memories for sure!

Natalie said...

Just made these tonight for the hubby and kids and they are amazing! So quick! Thanks for posting~

Shasta said...

I found this via Pinterest and made them this morning, and they are AMAZING! What was even better was how easy they are to make, no bowls or mixing - it was an easy cleanup. :)

LaNae said...

Oh lordy, these look delicious! Can't wait to try them! Thanks for posting :)

juclucy said...

Thank you so very much for sharing this great recipe....when my kids were little and still home I use to make these, precious memories how they linger! My husband will be in hog heaven!

Mrs. P said...

WOW!!! this is awesomeness at its fineness!! I am sorry too becuase I am going to do this! thinking of different glazes I can do now... =)

Leah said...

As soon as I saw the recipe, I needed to try it--like, right then. About 15 minutes later, hubby & I were enjoying the donuts. It was easy, fast, and delicious--everything I look for in a great recipe. Thank you!

Kelly said...

AAAHHHH--mazing!! :)

Lisa Ferris said...

These are just as great glazed:

3 cups Powdered Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 cup Cold Water Or Milk

1. Mix all glaze ingredients in a bowl until completely smooth.
2. One by one, dip doughnuts into the glaze until halfway submerged. (Note: completely submerge doughnut holes, then remove with slotted spoon.)
4. Remove from glaze, then turn right side up on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet (to catch dripping glaze.)
5. Serve warm if possible, or room temperature.

Lesley at Fabulously Flawed said...

Wow! I actually have 2 cans if biscuits just waiting in my fridge to be made. I am all over this recipe! Thank you so very much!
I had a look around your blog and it's totally rad...so happy to have found it and am now following. Cheers!

Lisa said...

Found on Pinterest and had to try it. See how mine turned out http://lifeawayfromtheofficechair.blogspot.com/
Thanks for the help. Love your blog btw.

Rhonda said...

I made these for breakfast this morning. They.were.fantastic! I shook the donut holes in a paper bag with powdered sugar and the leftover cinnamon sugar mixture and they were super delicious. My kids said this was the best breakfast ever! And so easy. Thanks!!

Lesley at Fabulously Flawed said...

I made them!
I have never been so impressed with a donut recipe. They were melt in your mouth scrumptious!!

These are going to be a once a month indulgence around my house from now on. Thank you, doll!

Awesome Girl said...

Oh wow :) These look AMAZING!!! I am so trying these this weekend!

Lori said...

I loved this, thanks so much! I made these tonight, with a delicious nutella topping for the donuts, my family loved them, I call them my Oscar donuts, for celebrating the Academy Awards tonight!
see my pic on facebook...Lori Gray.

FortuitousHousewife said...

L-O-V-E doughnuts! So when I spotted the pin of yours I had to give 'em a try...success!

My guys were so thrilled to have fresh doughnuts for Sunday breakfast I had to blog about it! - http://www.fortuitoushousewife.com/2012/02/doughnut-fix-pin-accomplished.html

Amanda said...

OMG!!!! SO GOOD!!!! Thank you so much for posting this! I will be doing some extra workouts after these donuts- but SO worth it!!! Thanks!

Silverfaerie said...

Oh Em Gee!!!!! I'm on a total sugar high right now, but in <3 with these! It only took about 20 minutes total to make them, 1 can of biscuits made more than my family of 3 could eat for dessert and now, my boyfriend might decide he wants to get married (we are both anti-marriage, that's how much he loved them).

The only unfortunate thing about this is that now, I wonder if I'll ever get my son to move out when he graduates haha.

Mind if I link up to this post when I post about it on my blog?

Kamiah said...

Going to have to try these soon..Last week used a roll of the Pillsbury Orange flavored cinnamon rolls and cooked them in the waffle maker. Kids LOVED them..but probably not as much as they will love these biscuit donuts!

Mamakaye123 said...

I can't wait to try these..They look yummy and may have to double or triple for my crew.Thank You

New Girl on Post said...

I found this recipe on Pinterest and I must say, these are AMAZING!!!! Love that they are so easy too!

Idolmonster said...

You are an evil evil person. Some of us are on a diet... well, maybe I can start on Monday. hehehe

vickid said...

my friends and i use to make these when we were kids. i'm 55 now so thats a long time ago, but they are still just as good now as they were then!

TheJerseyShoreMom said...

These were VERY VERY GOOD. I had family over & we made them together & everyone loved them! Will make again, maybe with a chocolate frosting.

Nicole said...

I made these tonight for the first time, and they turned out perfect (not as pretty as yours) but they tasted wonderful! Thanks for the great recipe!

bo-peepz said...

Just as a lot of other folks had said i read this recipe and 15 minutes later i was in the kitchen making these, lucky i had a can in the fridge it was only a few days old and they were flaky but i didnt notice anything negative, I will def be making these in the future with frosting or glaze haha

Shannon said...

Wow....just made these. SO dangerous. So very, very dangerous =D

Megan Mayfield said...

I am making these as I type. I've tried one already, and I AM IN LOVE!! I'm glad/mad I discovered this. Now I'm gonna be buying biscuits like crazy! The only thing different that I did was make a homemade glaze. We'll see how they taste with the glaze. Thanks for sharing this with us! :)

I tried these today on med heat, high heat, in donut and ball shapes and my middles were still gooey :(

L.A.D.Y said...

WOWZERS! These were amazing! I used about half the oil, and I was surprised at how quickly (a minute or two) these browned! I thought the middles might be gooey, but I turned heat to low and let them set a few more minutes and they were perfection after the cinnammon sugar! Next time, I may inject some Nutella! I even saved the "holes" for little munchkins for me (these aren't diet appropriate) but my hubby is heading for 3rds on the actual donuts. Thanks for posting!

Anonymous said...

Fixed these for breakfast this morning and they were amazing!!!!! Made half with butter and cinnamon/sugar and half with powdered sugar...can't decide which is my favorite! :)

Anonymous said...

Amazing hands down! I did like u said but than I dusted some with powered sugar and mmmmmmm they were super yummy too!!!

Anonymous said...

Amazing hands down!!! I made them the way u had said than I dusted some with powered sugar yummy there too!! Thanks!

Michelle J. said...

I think my oil was too hot or something. I took a delicious bite but quickly realized they were super doughy. I am going to try them again because I know they would have been delicious.

Lori said...

Saw a pin and came over. I know I could do this! Pinned another copy to have a quick link to the recipe forever!

angie said...

my hubby's mom made these for him when he was a kid, so I'm glad u put recipe up :) I will do this for my kids tomorrow...:) yay for fun treats!!

SandraD said...

This recipe brings back so many warm memories for so many people. My Aunt and I used to make these while waiting for my Uncle to get home from his night shift. We used a paper bag as well to shake the sugar, BUT we used confectioners sugar and a few pinches of cinnamon. If you put the donuts in the bag while their still warm, shake and they just melt in your mouth. Thanks to much for some of the other ideas! I will make these for my husband soon!

Hi I'm from Rep.of South Africa and looked everywhere for canned biscuits in our retail stores.NO LUCK..
I really want to cook this the pic's looks sooo yummy.

Thank you.

Jody said...

These were WAY too easy. And WAY too good. Since I'm home alone, I'm now trying to find a place to hide them so the kids & hubby can have one before they're gone.

Thanks a lot for giving me another thing that I'll probably stay up some late night to make for myself. (geesh) ;)

Anonymous said...

i accept your apology for making me want to try these so much :)

Molly from LifesLemons said...

You inspired my post tonight...thank you. ps....they were sooo delicious!! and crazy easy.

signingcharity said...

so easy and wonderful. Made them with my older girls and a friend of theirs. I did the frying and they decorated with cookie sprinkles. Next time will do with frosting too.

Thank you for my best pin yet on pinterest and a great girl time activity. Takes just the right amount of time for little hands.

Tina said...

Oh.My.Gosh. These are amazing. And Amazingly Easy! I'll have to spend an extra hour at the gym tonight, but it was SO worth it!

Terra D.G. said...

Thank you for this recipe...my kindergarten teacher showed me how to make these 25 years ago!! The only difference is we used a pop bottle top to make the hole and we shook the fried donuts in powdered sugar while they were still hot (no butter) the p.sugar melts perfectly into the dough...so delicious!

Anonymous said...

Okay so I am dieting so probably not a good thing I came across this, yet, it was a good thing I came across this! i do think the temp of the oil is crucial in getting the doughnut cooked throughout, but for a first time they didn't turn out half bad! So quick and easy! I had 2 and threw the rest out. Yes I know :( Gonna make these again this weekend and impress the hubby!

Anonymous said...

I've never tasted such glory... I had these and beer for dinner. Now I need to go run a marathon.. So apology accepted! :)

Claudine from CondensedLoveHome said...

Thanks a lot!

Kellie said...

I made these on Mother's Day for my kids. THEY LOVED THEM!!!!!! So delicious!! TFS!

D. said...

I tried making these with some Cheap Aldi's Buttermilk Biscuts. The doughnut holes I got perfect, some of the doughnuts though, my oil was too hot. they browned, but the center was abit doughy.

One thing I do notice missing. Nutmeg. I did the cinimon and sugar, but also added nutmeg. That didn't work, the nutmeg was sharp - it needs a little cooking to mellow out. So the next time I do this, I'm going to try dusting lightly, the dough before cooking, or I may actually kneed in some nutmeg and flatten it back out on was paper, then cook em.

Great idea though!!

Omg.....WHYYYY I really did eat like 10.......n it was night time!!!!!!!!

So fast and easy, I made between phone calls!
Thanks for this awesome recipe!

Meg said...

These are stupid good! I am going to try to make them and frost them with a chocolate glaze :)

heyarnoahld said...

is there a particular temperature the oil should be? i attempted to make these and the outsides got dark while the inside was still gooey

Our happy poor life said...

I know this post is old but I had to tell you that these donuts are out of this world good!! I can't believe I never knew of this technique before. I made these for dessert last night (don't judge) and my husband took one bite and just shook his head as if I had done something really evil. lol. They were even good for breakfast the next morning! Two meals for only $1.50!!

Home for Morris said...

OMG!!! I saw this recipe on pinterest and decided to try it for dessert tonight (after having salad for dinner) and these were AMAZING!!!! I did half of them w/ cinn-sugar and the other half w/ a lemon glaze sssssooooooo good (I did the butter step for both) Thanks so much for the recipe

Hello Crystal! I made these ridiculously good donuts a total of THREE times now. I can't keep them around long enough.

Thanks for sharing this recipe! I made them for my husband the other week and they were a hit! Next time I make them, I'll be sure to have non-flaky layer biscuits in the fridge.

I blogged about my experience with them here: http://bibliobleez.blogspot.com/2012/09/early-breakfast-indulgences.html

Thanks again!

Do you fry up the doughnut holes you cut out too then?

Jackie W said...

I have been making these for years. But I like to use chocolate icing on mine. Cinnamon and sugar for the donut hole. Yum!!

Jackie W said...

My mom used to make these when we were kids. I have been making them for years and use chocolate icing. I also use cinnamon and sugar for the donut holes. So very yummy!!

Kiara Jefferson said...

They're great! But once I open inside, the dough is a bit uncooked. any tips?

Kate said...

I don't know if I should hate you or love you. And I don't know if I should keep the biscuit cutters I got for a gift or give them back. These were AH-MAH-ZING! And sooooo easy! I think I might try a glaze next time (since my hubby asked for it) but the C&S was perfect for me. Thank you (and SHAME ON YOU) for sharing! Found you on Pinterest.

Joann Ibarra said...
