Make donuts using canned biscuits! OMG they are addicting!

Making donuts using canned biscuits is a fun and easy way to enjoy homemade donuts without the need for a lot of ingredients or special equipment. This simple method yields deliciously light and fluffy donuts that are perfect for breakfast or a sweet treat any time of day.

To make donuts using canned biscuits, start by heating vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large, heavy-bottomed pot to 350°F (175°C). While the oil is heating, open a can of refrigerated biscuit dough. You can use any type of biscuit dough, such as flaky or buttermilk.

Carefully separate the biscuits and use a small round cookie cutter or the cap of a water bottle to cut a hole in the center of each biscuit to form the donut shape. Save the donut holes to fry separately, or fry them along with the donuts for bite-sized treats.

Once the oil is hot, carefully place a few donuts and donut holes in the oil using a slotted spoon or tongs. Be careful not to overcrowd the pot, as this can cause the temperature of the oil to drop. Fry the donuts for about 1-2 minutes per side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.

Remove the donuts from the oil using a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Allow them to cool slightly before glazing or coating them with your favorite toppings.

For a classic glaze, mix powdered sugar with a little milk and vanilla extract until smooth. Dip each donut into the glaze, allowing any excess to drip off, and place them on a wire rack to set. You can also coat the donuts in cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar for a delicious finish.

Serve the homemade donuts warm and enjoy them with a cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk. These homemade donuts are sure to be a hit with your family and friends, and you’ll love how easy they are to make!

  • 1 can refrigerated biscuit dough 8 biscuits
  • 2 cups vegetable oil or other neutral cooking oil

For the filling:

  • 1 package instant vanilla flavored pudding mix 3.4 oz
  • 2 cups heavy cream or half & half
For the glaze:
  • ½ cup Nutella or other chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3-4 tablespoons milk
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove and separate biscuits and place them an inch or two apart on the parchment.
Pour the cooking oil into a medium or large pot and heat over medium to medium high heat until the oil reaches a temperature of 350 degrees F.
Carefully lower one or two biscuits into the oil to begin frying. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until the underside of the donuts are golden brown. Flip donuts with a fork or pair of tongs and repeat cooking 1-2 minutes on the other side.
Remove donuts and place on a paper-towel lined plate to drain the oil. Repeat frying one-two donuts at a time until all donuts are cooked. While the donuts are cooling, make the filling:
In a mixing bowl, combine the pudding mix and heavy cream until smooth and set aside to thicken. It will become very thick!
make the glaze:
In a small, microwave safe bowl, heat the Nutella for about 20 seconds or until softened, but not hot. You should be able to stir it easily with a spoon.
Sift the powdered sugar into a mixing bowl, then add the Nutella, salt, and milk. Mix with a whisk until smooth and combined.
Fill and top the donuts:
Fit a piping bag with a Bismark tip or cream piping nozzle, and fill the bag with the pudding mixture.nsert the piping tip into one edge of each donut and squeeze gently to fill the donuts with the pudding.
After filling the donuts, gently dip each one into the Nutella glaze and allow the excess to run off.
Set the glazed donuts on your prepared baking sheet and serve immediately.
