Paula Dean Donuts

The Beehives wanted to learn how to make donuts for our activity last we made donuts.

I brought all 12 of them to my house for some donut making 101.  We had a blast.

Kyanne told me about this recipe from Paula Dean and how she makes them out of grand biscuits.  They were super easy and super good.  We fried them up and glazed them and decorated them. 
Each girl had a turn at the fry pan and also took a plate home to share.
Fun times!!!

Here is the recipe for those that of you that would like to try them.  Note: get the buttermilk buscuits...we tried the flaky ones too and they were a little different to use.

Canned Biscuit Dough Donuts and Holes

Recipe courtesy Paula Deen
16 to 20 serving
Peanut oil, for frying
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar

2 cups confectioners' sugar, divided
5 tablespoons milk, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 cans large buttermilk biscuits
Colored sprinkles
Chocolate sprinkles


Heat 2 inches peanut oil in a large pot or Dutch oven to 350 degrees F.

In a shallow bowl, stir together the ground cinnamon and sugar and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 cup of confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons of milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, set aside. This is the vanilla icing. In another bowl, whisk together 1 cup of confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup of cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons of milk and set aside. This is the chocolate icing.

Lay out the biscuits on a cutting board and with a 1 1/2-inch round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out a hole from the middle of each biscuit. Fry them in the oil until golden and then flip with tongs to fry the other side. You can even fry the donut holes. Drain on paper towels and then toss in the cinnamon-sugar or ice and decorate with sprinkles, as desired.
