TEACH ME THURSDAY – Homemade Donuts

This is the easiest treat to make with kids.  They’re fun to make and so yummy!  I LOVE me some donuts in the fall (ok, any time really!) and these are fast and delicious!  All you need is refrigerated biscuits and some hot oil!

Step 1:IMG_9831 Open and separate biscuits.  Lay flat.

Step 2:
IMG_9835 Poke or cut a hole out of the center of each biscuit.  We used a medicine cup, because we wanted donut holds too!


Step 3:
IMG_9846 Heat vegetable oil to about 350 degrees.  I used an electric skillet with about 1/2 an  inch oil.  You could do it in any skillet on the stove.  You just need enough oil to cover the donuts half way.

Step 4:
IMG_9847 Flip the donuts when they are slightly browned (mind are a little over browned!  I should have flipped sooner!)

Step 5:
IMG_9849 Remove donuts and let cool on paper towels.

Step 6:
IMG_9858 IMG_9856 When the donuts have cooled a bit, choose your topping!  I used cinnamon and sugar for some and powdered sugar for the rest.  If you use powdered sugar, it works best if the donuts are completely cool, but with the cinnamon and sugar they can still be warm!  Cinnamon and sugar is my fave!

Step 7:
