World's quickest donuts

Make your own donuts with only a handful of ingredients.

I just love Pinterest. I was recently inspired by a tip I saw on Pinterest that showed me how to make donuts at home in only a few minutes. Since then, I've tried this tip and had tremendous success. If you and your family enjoy donuts, but don't want to pay store prices, give this a try.

First, purchase a package of refrigerated biscuits. Separate them on a sheet of wax paper. Now you need to cut a hole in the center. Most people use shot glasses, but since I don't drink I had to get a little more creative. I used my daughter's old pill bottle. Don't worry, I washed it first. Save the holes as they make great donuts as well.

Second, you need to heat up some vegetable oil in a frying pan. If you can afford to use coconut oil, use it. Coconut oil is extremely good for you, but I do understand that it is much more expensive.

Third, prepare your topping. There are several options where this is concerned. You can melt some cake icing in the microwave. You can also sift some powdered sugar, or create a cinnamon/sugar mixture to sprinkle over the completed donuts.

Fourth, place the donuts and donut holes in the oil a few at a time. Keep your eye on them. Mine cooked in record time. You'll need to flip them over once the bottoms become golden brown. Set the donuts on a plate that is covered with a paper towel.

Finally, while the donuts and donut holes are still hot, cover them with your toppings. Serve immediately, or store in plastic zipper bags for breakfast the following morning.
