Happy Friday everyone!! Awhile ago my friend Petronie made me these doughnuts and they were so yummy I had to know her secret. I was shocked when she told me they came from a can of buscuits! Seriously! And one little can makes plenty! My talented friend can make them look like real doughnuts but I am not that good so I stuck to doughnut bites. They are seriously so easy to make and were the perfect antidote for my doughnut cravings.
For the small ones, you cut the busciut into fourths[halves for the jelly filled] and roll it into a flat circle. It will puff up when dropped into the oil. Heat a pan of oil on medium heat. I would do a test one before throwing in a whole batch. The doughnut bite should sink, then come to the surface and slowly start to turn golden. Flip it and when it is done, place it on a paper towel to drain excess oil. The process is very fast, only a few minutes. However, if you drop your doughnut bite in and it turns golden super fast, the dough inside is probably not cooked.
And like I said, be sure to do a test one to make sure it is cooked inside before doing an entire batch.
Now, there are these German doughnuts that I am obsessed with. They are jelly filled and sprinkled with sugar both powder and regular. When I made these, jelly was on my mind. I just put regular jelly inside but I think next time I am going to buy the special ones they sell at our German grocery store. I put it in a squeeze bottle and filled the doughnuts. Then rolled them in regular sugar and powdered sugar. Not as good as the ones at the bakery but they are pretty yummy!
