Okay, so I know this is two days late, but I’ve been crazy busy with the “Fifty Things” project.
June 3rd was National Donut Day and I was super excited because I’ve been staring at a can of biscuits debating if I’d ever do anything with them. Biscuit Donuts for the win!
My only problem was I didn’t have chocolate for a glaze. It was a sad five minutes, but after doing a little Pinterest hunting I found the perfect Maple Glaze recipe. So these taste like a waffle with the texture of a cake donut. Yay!!
For your biscuit donuts you’ll need
- A can of biscuits
- A circular item to cut out the center (I couldn’t find my cookie cutter, so I ended up using a flask funnel)
- Oil for frying
For your glaze you’ll need
- 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 8 tbsp maple syrup
- 1-2 tbsp milk
- The first thing you want to do is open your biscuits and separate them on whatever work surface you’re using. Mine was a baking sheet.
- Once you’ve divided up your biscuits, start hearing your oil. You want enough oil to just cover your biscuit when it’s in the pot.
- Turn your biscuits in the oil and remove once golden. I didn’t have any tongs or anything like that to remove my donuts, so I used the handle of a wooden spoon. Whatever works.
- While your donuts are cooling, combine and whisk all of your glaze ingredients together.
- Once the donuts are completely cooled, dunk them in your glaze and let harden. The glaze is very thin, I’m not sure what description to use. I suggest adding a little more powdered sugar for a thicker glaze.
Just delicious! I have no regrets!! Here’s a picture of the funnel I used to make the holes. Just in case some of you have no idea as to what I was talking about.
Happy Two Days Late Donut Day!! 🍩
