I am a donut-a-holic, if thats even a thing. Ever since I was a kid I have loved getting donuts on Saturday mornings with my family. Now its a tradition for my kids. Since living out here in Tennessee I have a new love for blueberry donuts. I have tried one from every donut shop in town that makes them!
So far my favorite is Donut Time on Hartman, if you are in the area, try their blueberry donut! Its seriously so good.
I was determined to create one comparable, but simple. I kept seeing all these ways of making easy donuts out of store bought biscuits and crescents and I just had to try this out. So to my surprise I found Blueberry Biscuit Dough!
To be honest, I didn’t even know they made Blueberry! You guys, this donut recipe is so easy! All you need are 4 ingredients!
Open up your biscuits and lay them out on a piece of foil or parchment paper.
While you are doing this you may want to start heating up your oil in a sauce pan on the stove over medium heat. Next, using a round cutter or in my case a shot glass because I didn’t have a cutter and cut out the middle of your biscuits.
Now you have both donuts and donut holes! Woohoo! Can you tell donuts get me excited? Yikes….
Once your oil has been heated to about 375, if you don’t have a temp gage just stick the end of one of your donuts in the oil and if it starts to sizzle around it then you know its ready, and depending on the size of your pot, place 2-4 donuts in at a time. Let them sizzle and fry for about 1 min per side or until golden, flip with tongs.
Once done, set on a plate with paper towels to soak excess oil. When they have fully cooled, dip in glaze and set on rack to dry. Then devour them!!! Or at least thats what I did.
