Homemade Biscuit Donuts

Homemade Biscuit Donuts recipe on { lilluna.com } Delicious donuts made from Pillsbury Biscuits with a yummy glaze!

It’s still cold around these parts, which means it’s still Donut Season! I was really hoping things would warm up and the rain would stop by now, but this Houston weather is crazy. The second you think it’s warming up it’s back to freezing the next day. I just checked the forecast and it looks like it will continue to be cold for awhile. :/

In my mind there are only a few perks for when it’s cold and that includes cute Winter Clothes and warm foods like soups, breads and donuts!! This next recipe is one I’ve been wanting to try for awhile. They are Homemade Biscuit Donuts and let me tell ya- they are DELICIOUS!! Not only were they beyond easy to make but the whole family loved them, and they were perfect for a cold day here in TX. But, let’s face it – these donuts would be great ANY time of the year. 😉

Don’t they look yummy? I love how the glaze is oozing off the sides. Mmmmmmm!

The recipe was adapted a bit from the Pillsbury website and is one we’ll keep around for awhile. It’s just so easy and perfect for when you’re craving some homemade donuts. 🙂

I use a sprinkles cap to push out the centers.

Frying the donuts – A trick my mom always did was to use the other side of the wooden spoon to flip over the donuts and to take them out of the hot oil. 🙂

Delicious. Easy. Quick. Definitely my kind of dessert!!! 😀

You can change things up by using chocolate frosting or a cinnamon/sugar mixture, and you can always change it up with the sprinkles. We used Wilton Turtle Crunch sprinkles from Michael’s, which were perfect.

Good thing I started with the donut holes first – the oil was wayyyy to hot and totally burned them!! Make sure your oil is perfect by starting with a hole too. 😉

  1. I’ve made them this way for many, many years. And tstill love em this way. You can even use the cheapo biscuits. I don’t cut the holes though. I just poke my finger through and pull until I have a large hole. Then shape it and deep fry it. I don’t cool it either. It goes straight from the oil to the confectioner/milk .

  2. Wow, these look so delicious! I’m supposed to create an at home date tonight for my boyfriend and I was trying to figure out what I can do for dessert. These will be perfect and looks so simple to make! I’m thinking about making it a little more adult friendly by adding some kahlua somewhere in the mix. Thanks so much for the awesome idea!

  3. so good and I made them this morning. But I couldn’t seem to get any of them to look nice and golden brown like yours. The one that was cooked all the way through Burnt and ones that did look golden brown were still raw in the middle.
