Canned Biscuits Donut Holes @diethood 682x1024 Jelly Donut Holes with Canned Biscuits Dough

Here we go again with the doughnuts! OR Donuts! What can I say…I love doughnuts! It’s a weekend thing around here. Maybe you can make it a weekend thing, too!

Coincidentally, just the other day my Mojito Doughnuts were picked as one of the World’s Best Doughnuts by BuzzFeed Food. Cool stuff, right?!

But, I bet you’ll be shocked to know that I’ve had a Krispy Kreme’s doughnut only once, and a Dunkin’ Donuts doughnut maybe 4 times, at the most.

I don’t go to fast food restaurants. If there’s something I like, I make it in my kitchen in whatever way I know how.

These  Canned-Biscuits Jelly Donut Holes came about because I wanted a fried doughnut without, a) going to Dunkin’ Donuts and b) without all the work; like yeast, rising time, rolling… too much work. I want these babies on the weekends and I want them fast.

Thus, enter Canned Biscuits Dough! The Buttermilk kind from Pillsbury. That’s the one I use.

This is going to be the easiest fried doughnut recipe you have ever seen. I wasn’t sure what filling I wanted to include in this recipe for you because I sometimes use jelly, other times nothing, and often times I use chocolate ganache.

My mother thinks that it is totally wrong to include chocolate ganache in a doughnut. It’s too classy of a filling to be used in a doughnut, she says. I think she is trying to tell me that doughnuts are not classy.

Jelly Donut Holes with Canned Biscuits Dough

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 20 Donut Holes

Ingredients

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Buttermilk Biscuits Dough
  • Your choice of Jelly
  • Canola Oil for Frying
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Separate dough into individual biscuits.
  • Flatten each biscuit dough with the palm of your hands; Cut in half.
  • Place 1/2 teaspoon of Jelly in the middle of each half.
  • Form each biscuit into a ball by pinching together the ends and then rolling the dough in between your palms.
  • Fill a saucepan about a 1/3 way up with oil; heat oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, lower the heat to medium-low. That's about a "3" on my gas stove.
  • Drop the doughnuts into the saucepan, 2 to 3 at a time.
  • Fry them in the oil until golden and then flip with tongs to fry the other side.
  • Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl; Toss the doughnuts in the cinnamon-sugar mixture while they're still warm.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

Make sure that you lower the heat so that the doughnuts cook evenly, inside and out.

  1. What a fantastic idea. Heck, I don’t need to fill it with anything. Just give me a blob of fried dough on a plate! I love them. Congrats on your other donuts making the FoodBuzz site.

    I had no idea donuts could be so easy to make! This could be very dangerous for me. ;)

    Hi Kate, I would never think to use canned biscuit dough but it makes perfect sense. Your photos are always so beautiful. Pinned it before it even appearing in my stream, into doughnuts! :)
