I'm a HUGE donut fan, I mean if there is one food out there that I have a major weakness for, it has to be donuts. Lordy do I have to watch my around them.
But when I have a craving for them, I just have to have one.
I'm going to pick up the kids from school in about 30 minutes, but I had promised Nicholas to make some donuts for them as an after school snack, so as a good mommy, I stuck to my part of the deal and I whipped these up in 20 minutes.
You want to make some too? I bet you have all the ingredients on hand!
2 small cans of buttermilk biscuits
oil for frying
2 cups powdered sugar
5 tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla or maple essence
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Open the can and pull out the biscuits, then using your fingers poke a hole in the middle and stretch it out until it resembles a donut. Repeat with remaining can.
In a small bowl mix 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla or maple essence and 2 tablespoons of milk. Mix well.....this is the maple glaze.
In a separate bowl, mix 1 cup powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons of milk and 1/4 cup of cocoa powder, mix well....this is the chocolate glaze.
Heat about 2 inches of oil to 350º. When the oil is ready, pop the biscuits in there, you have to watch them though cause they cook really fast.....
as soon as they start to brown, flip them over.
Drain them on paper towels
Let them cool down a bit and then dip them in the different glazes....I personally LOVE maple. YUM!
ENJOY! But make sure you control yourself, it's very easy to pop one or two, or three into your mouth before you realize what you've done. Don't say I didn't warn you LOL
