This quick and easy recipe for Sugared Doughnut Bites uses canned biscuit dough... they cook up in minutes for a quick treat. They're so yummy and easy to just pop in your mouth... one after the another. They will disappear in no time!
Use a frying thermometer... it is the best for helping to control the temperature... the right temperature when cooking means the difference between greasy foods and not.DO NOT leave the frying pot unattended for even a minute.. if you must leave the stove... turn the stove OFF... or you could easily burn your house down!
I used Honey Butter flavored Homestyle canned biscuits.. you can use the plain variety too.. but the Honey Butter ones are the best!
Make sure you use Homestyle Biscuits.. the flaky ones are not the ones to get.
I rolled them in cinnamon sugar.. but you can also use powdered sugar.. the only problems I see with powdered sugar are .... one .... they're messier... and two... the sugar tends to get sucked into the doughnut. The granulated sugar gives them a nice little crunchy texture.
To combine the sugar and cinnamon, use a wire whisk to mix it... a whisk is great for getting it evenly mixed. Just gently stir it with the whisk until evenly mixed together.
Try these.. you won't believe how easy they are to make!
