So a little while back, I came across this recipe for what looked like the Easiest Donuts Ever. Dubbed “Naughty Donuts”, they’re basically deep fried biscuits. Considering how amazing non deep-fried biscuits are, I had to try deep-fried ones.
So I got a roll of whatever the off-brand version of Pillsbury butter biscuits is. I needed to get those holes in there somehow, so I went with the only thing I could find in my kitchen that was close to a donut hole shape.
I don’t own a deep fryer, so I just filled a pot with a gratuitous amount of vegetable oil, and let these babies fry away, flipping them after a minute or so.
I made some vague attempts to blot the excess oil off, but let’s face it, if you’re already deep frying something, blotting extra oil really isn’t going to do that much. Besides, the coating’s gotta stick to something, right?
I mixed together some sugar and cinnamon in a bowl, and rolled the donuts and holes around until appropriately coated.
These things were pretty awesome, and I’d totally make them again. They’re best if they’re going to be eaten right away, though. Still good when room temperature, but reheating in the microwave makes you very aware of how much oil soaked into them when deep-fried.
Anyhow, I totally wanna try experimenting with this recipe. My current idea is to not strip the holes out of the middle, and to get some chocolate chips in there somehow. Deep fry that, and coat it with powdered sugar. Mmm magical!
