Shari's Donuts

This donut recipe was named so because it was my friend Shari who told me about it.The recipe was simple (if you know how to fry, you can do this!), and all I had to do was make the glaze. It was easy and delicious, but you have to eat them while they are still hot!

What you need:

For the donuts:
  • 1 can (17.3 oz) Homestyle biscuits
  • canola oil (enough for frying)
  • glaze (recipe below)
  • candy sprinkles
For the sugar glaze:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk
For the chocolate glaze:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons milk

What to do:

In a sauce pan or deep fryer, heat enough oil to fry the donuts. Meanwhile, separate the canned 
 biscuits and poke a hole in the middle using your fingers. 

When the oil is hot enough, add the biscuits and fry them until one side is golden, then flip to cook the other side. Make sure your oil is not very hot, as it will burn the dough immediately. Remove from oil and drain on cooling racks.

Make the glaze. For the sugar glaze, combine milk and vanilla in a bowl. Stir in the confectioners sugar while whisking until well combined. 

For the chocolate glaze, add the sugar and cocoa powder to the milk and whisk until well combined.

Dip the donuts in the glaze and top with candy sprinkles. Enjoy!

Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:

1. Don't throw away the donut holes! Fry and glaze them as well.
2. Keep an eye on your dough as it burns easily. 
3. Use regular-sized canned biscuits. Jumbo biscuits might not cook through when you fry it.
4. Wait a few minutes for the donuts to cool down a bit before glazing them. 
 5. Eat them fresh. The longer they sit out, the denser they get.
