Super Simple 2 Ingredient Donuts [RECIPE]
Good Morning Everyone!
Let’s talk donuts. I had a thought this morning, and maybe my international/non-American followers out there can help me with this question: Are donuts a breakfast food in other countries of the world? I was reflecting on donuts and what to write to you when this question came up in my mind. For me, growing up in America donuts have always been a staple breakfast item. It’s like the American excuse to eat cake for breakfast. I’m not exactly sure why… it just is. So I grew up eating a ton of donuts. In fact, my very first job was at a Dunkin Donuts! Needless to say, I know a thing or two about donuts and how they’re made.
Coincidentally, of all the baking recipes I’ve tried, the one recipe that I seem to fail over and over at is… you guessed it, donuts. Let me pause here and explain my love for donuts. When I think of donuts, I think of that perfect little pastry piping hot out of the oven. If it’s a glazed donut, then the sugary glaze is nearly transparent because it’s still warm. (Check out a Krispy Kreme near you and go when the “hot” light in the store is on!). I think about Dunkin Donuts and their nearly 20+ options you have to choose from. My favorite is blueberry cake. Oh how I love blueberry cake donuts. It’s like a blueberry muffin… but in the shape of a donut with glaze on top. Now pair that with a cup of tea and you’re in heaven.
But anyways, back to this recipe. 🙂
Doughnuts. I’ve tried making them but somehow or another they don’t come out just right… until I found this foolproof donut recipe courtesy of Buzzfeed. It’s two ingredients. Just two. And yes, it really does taste like a donut! Crazy, I know! I was skeptical at first. How could a can of biscuit dough taste anything like a donut? But my friends, it truly does. I dipped my doughnuts in cinnamon-sugar, but you can easily dip them in powdered sugar, or make a simple doughnut glaze to go on top. Not feeling like a sweet donut? Try a savory one! Yes, some people love peanut butter and bacon on top! The combinations are never ending, but it’s a great little recipe to have on hand as a “once in a while” treat. I hope you all love this recipe as much as I do!
Before I forget, let’s do today’s game fact for Guild Wars 2:
Game Fact: Each player class is getting a new specialization. This will include new legendary weapons and player mechanics to learn. So if you’re like me and you’re totally psyched to be a sniper/thief… well… get ready to head into Elona and grab some hero points!
That’s it for today 🙂 Stay tuned for tomorrow’s “5 ingredients or less” recipe and until then, keep on cooking ❤
Super Simple 2 Ingredient Donuts
Serves: 8 doughnuts
- 1 (8 count) can buttermilk biscuit dough
- Vegetable oil for frying
- Any toppings you desire!
- Begin by placing a skillet on medium heat to warm with enough vegetable oil to fry your donuts.
- While the skillet is warming, open the can of biscuit dough. Use a donut cutter, or a shot glass, to cut out a hole in your donuts. Save the holes to make doughnut holes! 🙂
- Once the oil is hot, gently place your donuts in 3-4 at a time. Fry on each side for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Flip and fry on the other side for the same amount of time. Continue frying until all of your donuts and donut holes are cooked.
- Remove from the pan onto a towel-lined plate. Then dip your donuts into your preferred topping.
- Serve hot and enjoy!
