I want to start out by saying that I don’t condone eating donuts or junk food all the time, but every now and then, or on special occasions, I do enjoy eating a donut. I especially love homemade donuts on a weekend morning. There is nothing better than a homemade donut and a tall cup of joe to start off a lazy Saturday. This recipe has got to be the easiest way to make homemade donuts ever.

Easiest Homemade Donuts Ever

1 bottle of vegetable oil

1-2 cans of biscuits (not the flakey kind)

3/4 cup sugar

3 tablespoons cinnamon

1 plastic pop bottle cap

Melt the butter in the microwave in a bowl. Pour cinnamon and sugar into another bowl and mix. Place both bowls next to the stove. Unwrap the biscuits and use a pop bottle cap to cut the center out of the biscuits.

Pour the oil into a skillet about a 1/2 inch deep then turn it on medium high. Allow the oil to warm up for a few minutes. To see if the oil is ready, place one of the donut holes into the oil. If it sizzles and bubbles around the edges, then the oil is ready. Now put as many of the donuts into the skillet as will fit. Be quick about it, as the first donuts may be ready to flip as soon as the last donut is put in the pan. They should cook for less than 1 minute on each side. Remove the donuts from the skillet and set on a paper towel. Do the same for the donut holes. Once donuts have cooled enough to touch, but are still warm, dip both sides in the butter and then the cinnamon and sugar mix.
