Sometimes I tend to crave for doughnuts but I don’t feel like driving to the nearest Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme. I ended up going on Pinterest to see how to make my very own “Krispy Kreme” doughnut at home. I noticed that many people make their homemade doughnuts with biscuit dough. So I decided to go for it and make my doughnuts. I’ve notice that I would be saving money by making my own. Just think about $3.00 for a dozen of doughnuts! Crazy, I know!
- A can of refrigerated biscuits
- Canola or Vegetable oil
- A deep pan for frying *I used a “saucepan ” but just as long as it’s deep enough to fry your doughnuts*
For the glaze, I used:
- 1 cup Confectioners sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
- 1-2 tablespoon (s) Milk (dairy or non-dairy)
First things first, fill your pan with oil about 2-3 inches and set the stove to medium heat. A great tip to be certain that your oil is ready to fry is by putting a little drop of water to the oil? If it has a “pop” sound, it’s ready.
But while you are heating up your oil, use a cookie cutter . Don’t worry about the middle pieces, they are going to be the doughnut holes.
Now that your oil is fired up and ready to go, use one of the “doughnut holes” as a tester by placing it in the hot oil. Let it fry until golden brown on both sides. This would determine if the oil is too hot. You don’t want your doughnut holes to turn into edible charcoal, do ya? When the doughnut hole survives, then place at least two “doughnuts” in the fryer at a time for at least 3-5 mins at a time.
While the doughnuts are frying, it’s time to make the glaze for the doughnuts. Mix the confectioner’s sugar, vanilla extract, and milk in a separate bowl until blended. After the doughnuts are done, immediately dip them into the yummy glaze that you made.
Now the moment we’ve waited for, eat that doughnut with pride because you made it! Enjoy it!
*If you’re not about that vanilla glaze life, you could use cake frosting, caramel, or coat them with cinnamon and sugar, or confectioner’s sugar. Whatever makes you happy in doughnut land, go for it.
I hope it works out for you. Enjoy every moment!
