Homemade Donuts

I used to make these for my little brothers. Fun to make together, the kids can roll them or sprinkle them with sugar.

Supplies for Donuts:
biscuit dough - ready to use or from scratch
small circle cutter - I used a medicine cup that came from children’s Tylenol
1/4 - 1/2 cup cooking oil - vegetable or canola
paper towels
cinnamon and sugar mix

Open the biscuit can and spread all the rolls out. Then using a small circle cutter, press out a donut hole right in the middle.
Then get your pan on medium heat with 1/4 - 1/2 cup oil. Depending on how many you make, you will need more oil. You want enough oil to cover half of the donut when cooking. Place 3-4 doughy donuts into the pan and leave until the bottom is golden brown. Don’t do anything else but watch these, as they cook fast and don’t want them to burn. Then turn them over and cook another minute or so. Using tongs, place the cooked donut on paper towels to drain and cool slightly.
