    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. [​IMG]

    Yup! We cut the hole out of the middle, and fry both in ot veggie oil. Then we make a glaze from sugar, a spot of milk, and some vanilla. Bring it to a boil and you have your glaze. Dunk em in the glaze and eat! Everyone loves them! [​IMG]

    I've made them alot, they are super simple and YUMMY!!! [​IMG]
    I've done them both ways with cutting out a hole or leaving them as is. I like them glazed the best but do love them with sugar or cinnamon/sugar too. I just [​IMG] DONUTS period!! [​IMG]
    (To make them with the hole in the middle I use a pop top, like a 2 liter screw top or off a regular soda/pop bottle, it's the perfect size!)

    What kind of biscuit dough do you all use? Buttermilk or just regular dough?

    Quote:I just use any brand of biscuit dough; whatever is cheapest. Right now walmart has their brand of canned biscuits (10 to a can) on sale for a $1. I like the buttermilk better.
    I cut mine in half before frying. Dunno why. Guess that's how I did it when the kids were little to make one can go further. Just get your oil good and hot in a skillet and drop the dough in. Let them get golden brown on one side (this only takes a few seconds), then flip them over and brown the other side. Drain on paper towels or a paper bag and cool slightly. I put the powdered sugar or the sugar/cinammon mixture in a ziplock bag and toss a few donuts in at a time. Shake to coat.
    Gocrow, thanks for the glaze recipe. [​IMG]
