Making Doughnut Holes at Home

doughnut holes

Doughnut holes are one of my kids’ favorite treats.  They love the bite sized bits of crispy, doughy, sugary goodness and I, well, I just love them, too.

There are so many recipes for doughnut holes but this is one of my favorites for weekday  mornings because it’s quick and easy.  This is one of those great kid friendly recipes, easy to make, fun to make and BEST OF ALL.. delicious to eat!

i had a horrible time with lighting this week so the few pics are meh

You need a can of biscuits, 1 can of 10 count buttermilk makes 40 doughnut holes!!  Cut each biscuit into quarters.

Drop into 375 F hot oil

It takes about 3 minutes to turn the dough into these delicious hot golden bites of  crispy, doughy deliciousness.

Remove them from the oil and place them on a paper towel for a moment to allow the oil to drain.

Toss in cinnamon sugar mixture and serve.

Making Doughnut Holes at Home

Delicious, crispy, puffy, light golden balls of dough - fried to perfection and served with cinnamon sugar topping.

Ingredients

  • 1 C sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 (10 ct) can buttermilk biscuits
  • 375 F hot oil

Instructions

  1. Begin by heating oil in skillet or fryer (cast-iron, if you’re lucky)
  2. Using scissors, cut each biscuit into quarters, and roll into balls (they will look really tiny, but they puff up when they cook, trust me)
  3. When the oil is ready (375 F) gently drop about 6 doughnut holes at a time into it.
  4. Using a wooden spoon, slowly roll the dough in the oil until it’s golden all over, remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate while you drop in more dough
  5. Toss with sugar/cinnamon mixture

    These look both easy and delicious – my family will love them. What a great idea to use buttermilk biscuits! Thank you for sharing such a yummy idea and for hosting Mouthwatering Monday.

    This is a family tradition in my family! My mom made these (and regular donuts) for us as a treat when I was little and we got to shake them in the bags of powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, etc.

    Now it’s a great treat for our kids.

    One of our favorite variations? Key lime glaze. YUM!

    I will have to commit to making this just ONCE a month or I would be making them everyday. Can’t wait to try.

    I would get major mom points for making these. With cinnamon sugar is my favorite way to eat donuts.

    Rachel!! This is TOO FUNNY. I had never made donuts in my life and then we did it on Saturday night (we’re still celebrating our new-ish deep fryer), from canned biscuits, with cinnamon sugar. We looked through a zillion recipes and ideas before my husband insisted that good ol’ canned biscuits were the way to go.

    (We also found through trial and error that putting the cinnamon sugar — and some extra sugar — in a paper lunch sack and tossing them with the donuts was the best way to get them fully coated. Is that how you do it? Do you know of a better way than what we figured out?)

    My sister would make these for her girls. I lived there for a semester when I was in college and enjoyed them many times. I haven’t thought about them in years though! I think it’s time for my kids to experience them too! :)

    Yeah I have been doing this for year. but I flatten out the biscuits and take my cookie cutter and cut out the center, so we have funnuts and holes. I always do a powdered sugar and cream cheese glaze, and a chocolate glaze, for the fun nuts, and toss the holes in the sugar or cinnamon. Being a southern girl myself you know these are good.

  14. says

    This is how my mom has made them since i can remember! You can also do glaze or powder sugar! Makes me want some and if you have an aldi nearby the cans of biscuits are 39 cents! (Something like that!)
