Jelly Donut Holes with Canned Biscuits Dough

Canned Biscuits Jelly Donut Holes @diethood #doughnuts #recipe #breakfast #chocolate

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.

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

Instructions
  1. Separate dough into individual biscuits.
  2. Flatten each biscuit dough with the palm of your hands; Cut in half.
  3. Place 1/2 teaspoon of Jelly in the middle of each half.

  5. Fill a saucepan about a 1/3 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.

  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.

Recipe Notes

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

  1. How many days in advance can you make the dough & jelly and keep them in fridge before frying them?

    Or if you make in advance do you recommend freezing and then thawing out before frying?

    I need to make them on Wednesday, for a party on Saturday.

  2. 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!
