I make simple biscuit donuts. Meaning I took a can of biscuits punched out the middles with a medicine cup to make donuts and doughnut holes. Then I fried them and rolled them in sugar and cinnamon. They kids are able to help with all steps of this except the frying.
1 or 2 cans of small biscuits
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
Lay out a piece of wax paper or a cutting board. Spread the biscuits out on the paper. Using a medicine measuring cup as a cookie cutter, cut out the middles of the biscuits. Use the round biscuit dough you just cut out to make donut holes. The biscuits missing the middle will now make perfect donuts.
Mix up the sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside.
Heat vegetable oil on medium heat in a frying pan/skillet. Once the oil is hot enough place your dough pieces in the oil and fry them until golden brown.
