Store bought biscuit dough – 1 can

Canola oil – enough to fill ¾ inch up the pan

Sugar – ½ cup

Step 1

Get out all necessary ingredients.

Step 2

Heat the oil until you see small bubbles floating to the top.

Step 3

Cut the biscuit dough into ¼ or ⅛ pieces, depending on what size you prefer.

Step 4

While you’re waiting for the oil to heat up, set up your station:

  1. Your cut up dough;
  2. Your soon-to-be-sizzlin’ oil;
  3. Your paper towel plate (to cool down the dough after oil);
  4. Your bowl of sugar;
  5. Your final plate to hold your delicious donuts!

Step 5

Test one piece of dough to check your oil, you should hear a sizzle immediately.

Step 6

Fry until the side in the oil is golden brown, then flip to fry the other side. If you chose to cut the dough into ¼ pieces earlier, let them fry an extra 30 seconds on each side.

Step 7

Using a slotted spoon place donuts onto paper towels and dab off excess oil.

Step 8

Roll in sugar, and enjoy!
