They may be called different things in different places. Basically canned biscuit dough fried in hot oil and topped with sugar? I used to make them all the time for my kids when they were little. I recently made them for my new husband and he loves them, I usually coat them with powdered sugar or granulated sugar and cinammon mixed together. I'm seeking ideas for other toppings. I would especially like to know how to thicken chocolate syrup to make chocolate covered donuts. I have a recipe for bavarian creme, add the chocolate topping and yummy.
