Homemade Glazed & Sugar Doughnuts

We’re finally having our first snow day here in Seattle… and I’m makin’ doughnuts!

I’m making them just like my mom used to make when I was a kid.  Fried biscuit dough covered in granulated sugar (my fave) and also glazed (my husband’s fave)

My daughter loved them too, but doesn’t like to get messy, so she tackled her doughnut like this:

There’s nothing better than a messy, warm doughnut and a cold glass of milk on a cozy snow day.


1 can of refrigerated biscuit dough
oil for frying

1/2 cup powdered sugar
3 T milk


Plain old granulated or powdered sugar

Heat your oil to 365°.

Open your biscuit dough and roll each biscuit into a disk. Poke a nice sized hole in the center of each disk.

Pop them into your deep fryer (or big pot of oil) and cook them on each side until they are golden brown (about 20-30 seconds per side)

If you are using sugar, powdered sugar, or cinnamon/sugar, have it ready in a paper bag, and take the doughnuts directly from the oil and place them into the bag and give them a good shake. If you are going to glaze them, place them on a cooling rack covered in paper towels to drain the oil.

While doughnuts are cooling, working quickly, mix your powdered sugar and milk. Dip warm doughnuts about half way into the glaze.

Enjoy warm.
