Celebrate National Donut Day at Home

Filed under: News — Missy @ 8:48 pm

Looking for something fun to do on this rainy Friday afternoon? Try making your own donuts in honor of National Donut Day! The recipe can’t get any simpler…


1 roll of refrigerated biscuits (7.5 oz can)

3 cups Canola oil

Plain Icing

Mix together:

1 cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoon milk

Apple Glaze Icing

Mix together:

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

2 tablespoons apple juice

1) Slowly heat Canola oil in 1 quart saucepan.

2) While warming, remove biscuits from roll. Separate. Using a biscuit cutter, remove center of biscuit to make a “donut.” Let rise for several minutes.

3) Brown donuts in oil (2-3 minutes on each side).

4) Have fun with the toppings! Dip warm donuts in one of the glaze recipes above and then roll in nuts, chocolate chips or sprinkles! You can also roll them in plain powdered sugar or a cinnamon/sugar mixture. Don’t forget to cook the “holes” and dip those in toppings too.

5) Enjoy!

  1. I have never attempted a donut, but I do like them. I am passing this recipe on to the house’s resident baker…my girlfriend. I would use the donut centers to make donut holes as well; I like to think of them as bite sized bits of heaven.Thank you for the recipe, I am sure I’ll thoroughly enjoy them.
