Donuts - Sandcastle Momma Style

The other day one of the Island Girl’s friends mentioned that she wanted some donuts and that she was going home to make some. I asked how she made them and she said she’d never done it before but that she was going to look for a recipe.

From a cobweb covered corner of my mind, I suddenly remembered making donuts as a teenager. I have no idea where the recipe came from so I can’t give proper credit but I do remember making them and decided to try it again. They turned out great and were really easy to make so I thought I'd share with you.

Here's what you need


Start by mixing 1/2 cup of Confectioner's Sugar with 2 Tablespoons of water until sugar disolves


Then take each biscuit and using a small cookie cutter cut a whole out of the middle


Fill a pot with about 3 inches of cooking oil. Make sure you have enough oil so that the donuts float and don't touch the bottom of the pan. Heat to 350


Add biscuits and fry for about 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning half way through cook time


Follow the same steps with the holes - except that they won't flip so you have to use a spoon and turn/stir them while they cook


As soon as donuts and holes are golden brown remove to a drip pan and then add glaze

Be sure to apply glaze as soon as donuts and holes come out of the oil. The glaze won't stick as well if you wait until they cool.

Once you're done, sit back and enjoy!




These donuts are best eaten hot. They tend to get a little dense after they've cooled but you can put them in the microwave for about 5 to 8 seconds and they lighten up again.
