Grey day today - so a bit of easy good cheer was in order. These donuts are easy - easy enough that I had the idea and made them all in the span of time Deanna was in the shower. All it takes is a can of biscuits - I used the Buttermilk Grands (I am told to avoid the extra buttery flaky styles for this)
I have an electric deep fryer, but it felt like too much hassle to pull it out, so I just used my wok and poured enough oil in it to give me 2" worth. I heated that up (I know there are ways to be sure of the exact temperature - I just waited for that point where water droplets tossed on the oil sizzles good but doesn't explode into oily shrapnel all over the place).
The standard rule for deep frying applies here - don't crowd them! It lowers the temperature of the oil, makes things stick together and otherwise just is a bad idea. And this is so fast, there's no need to get impatient about it.
You can see in this picture that there were a couple that got a bit too brown - fortunately, they still tasted fine, but its only a matter of seconds between perfectly golden and very dark.
The frosted ones are good - but the cinnamon sugar donuts were our favorite, and I'll probably just do all cinnamon sugar next time. Well...unless next time I try filling them with jelly or custard...
There will be a next time - these were awesome!
