Danger


I was cruisin' the blogs the other day and I found that one can make doughnuts at home using only a can of biscuits.

I cut the holes out with an old baby bottle (our last vestige of babydom) and after about 20 minutes we had 8 doughnuts and 8 doughnut holes.

I had to draw the line, and we are saving these for later.

Too tasty.

very dangerous.

Update: Yes indeed, anonymous, these are fried.

Heat up about an inch of oil in a heavy-bottom pan on medium heat until shimmering, but not smoking.

Here the doughnut holes serve a great purpose, you can use them to test the readiness of the oil.

Fry on one side for about 1 1/2 minutes, and then flip and fry for about as long.

Then you transfer the doughnuts to a paper-towel lined cooling rack and sprinkle cinnamon sugar over them.

These are still good when they are cool, but really good when hot and fresh.

Uh-oh. I will never try to make those for fear that I will make them every single day.
