Homemade Donuts

Did you know that today is National Donut Day? Who knew they had such a wonderful day! I eat a donut every other Wednesday at 10;30 in the morning. We have a patient at the clinic who brings the Dr and I a donut from Tim Horton’s. A chocolate frosted bavarian creme filled donut. I love those Wednesdays. So in honor of the beloved donut the grand kids and I made our own homemade donuts. The kind you can make in a pinch. They aren’t healthy but that’s not what eating a donut is all about now is it?

You’ll need:

I can buttermilk type biscuits

1 cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoons cinnamon (more or less to your taste)

oil for frying ( I used expeller pressed coconut oil, shallow layer in a small skillet).

First gather up my little helpers. They are tasting the sugar to make sure it’s good. 🙂

Find something to make a hole in the center of your biscuit. I used a plastic salt shaker with the lid off upside down. Worked great.


Katie cuts the donuts, Tyler organizes the holes.

Mix together the cinnamon and sugar.

Heat up the oil over medium/high heat. I don’t let the kids near this part. Hot grease!

Ease your donut into the oil, careful not to splatter. Cook about a minute or until brow. Turn over and cook till both sides are golden brown. Don’t make the donuts to thick or the won’t cook all the way through.


Remove from the oil and coat with the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Be careful they are hot!


Cool and serve. The kids loved them! If you don’t feel like making your own donuts. Go here to check out who is offering FREE donuts today.

I share at these parties.
