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 

Courtesy of: Buzzfeed 

Serves: 8 doughnuts

Ingredients: 

  • 1 (8 count) can buttermilk biscuit dough
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Any toppings you desire!

Instructions: 

  1. Begin by placing a skillet on medium heat to warm with enough vegetable oil to fry your donuts.
  2. 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! 🙂
  3. 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.
  4. Remove from the pan onto a towel-lined plate. Then dip your donuts into your preferred topping.
  5. Serve hot and enjoy!

  1. I’ve never had doughnuts for breakfast in Australia and never seen them in shops or in hotels here for breakfast. When I’ve been in Canada or the US, I’ve been offered doughnuts as soon as I arrive at a meeting in the morning along with coffee.
    If I ate doughnuts for breakfast, I’d be fatter than what I already am.

  2. Doughnuts are not a breakfast food!! They are a special, very fattening treat to only be eaten very occasionally! I could happily eat them several times a day, but so not good for you!!
    Oh, I do quite fancy one now I’ve thought about them so much!
