Canned Biscuit Donuts are an easy way to get your doughnut fix! Make them for breakfast or weekend brunch, so yummy and delicious!These donuts are such a great treat for back to school or a birthday morning! They are so simple to make too, using just Pillsbury® Biscuits and your preferred vegetable oil.

A dear friend taught me how to make these at an early breakfast playdate a couple of years ago. I made a simple glaze and a cinnamon-sugar blend to top the donuts.

Canned Biscuit Donuts

Ingredients

  • Two cans 10 count of Pillsbury®Biscuits
  • 1 QT of cooking oil
  • For the Cinnamon-Sugar Topping
  • ¼ c powdered sugar
  • ¼ c granulated sugar
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • For the Glazed topping
  • ½ c powdered sugar
  • 1 T milk

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
  2. While the oil is heating I make the glaze and cinnamon-sugar.
  3. Add the cinnamon and sugars to a gallon-sized zipper storage bag, close and shake to mix.
  4. Add the sugar and milk to a bowl and mix. You can adjust sugar and milk if you prefer a thicker or thinner glaze.
  5. Open the biscuits and stretch a hole about 1½ inch across in the middle of each biscuit then gently place in oil.
  6. If oil is hot enough it will start to bubble around frying the dough and start to turn brown.
  7. Repeat with as many will fit in your pot.
  8. Turn over after about 2 minutes, may take longer or shorter depending on how hot your oil is.
  9. When your donuts are the color you prefer, a nice golden brown for me, remove from oil with a slotted spoon or tongs and let rest on paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
  10. Repeat as many times as you need to cook all the donuts.
  11. Next toss warm donuts in the cinnamon-sugar blend inside the bag to coat and then set on cooling rack.
  12. Dip each donut in the glaze and then let the glaze set on the cooling rack. i usually only dip one side because it is sweet enough for us and saves on it being too messy.
  13. Serve immediately.

  1. I like this! Looks good! I’ve been tempting to make donuts from scratch but I think this will be easier. Since, school has started back, I definitely need easier. Pinning for later use…

  3. What a fun way to use canned biscuits! I love how this cuts down the wait time for dough to rise. I will take one of each 🙂
