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.

Total time
 
Serves: 20 Donut Holes
Ingredients
  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Buttermilk Biscuits Dough
  • Your choice of Jelly
  • Canola Oil for Frying
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Separate dough into individual biscuits.
  2. Flatten each biscuit dough with the palm of your hands; Cut in half.
  3. Place ½ teaspoon of Jelly in the middle of each half.
  4. Form each biscuit into a ball by pinching together the ends and then rolling the dough in between your palms.
  5. Fill a saucepan about a ⅓ way up with oil; heat oil.
  6. Once the oil is hot, lower the heat to medium-low. That's about a "3" on my gas stove.
  7. Drop the doughnuts into the saucepan, 2 to 3 at a time.
  8. Fry them in the oil until golden and then flip with tongs to fry the other side.
  9. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl; Toss the doughnuts in the cinnamon-sugar mixture while they're still warm.
  10. Serve immediately.
Notes
Make sure that you lower the heat so that the doughnuts cook evenly, inside and out.

    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! :)

    I didn’t know something this delicious and pretty could come from a canned biscuit! I am going to keep some on hand for company who visit around the holidays. What a treat!
