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.

Hi, this is my first visit and - look! We have the same theme and background in our blogs! Love your pictures. Also, I share your joy over the new elected president, he inspires us in my country too.

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