Growing up my younger brother was the pickiest eater ever. He ate a small list of things consisting mainly of bologna, Cheetos, and sometimes hot dogs. Over the years he’s learned to eat a few more things, but he’s still fairly picky. So it’s hard for me to find recipes of food he’s willing to try.
I was recently looking for a new sweet treat when I found a recipe on Pinterest for homemade doughnuts. My younger brother will eat sugared doughnuts and cinnamon rolls, so I thought this was a perfect recipe to test on him.
The supplies you’ll need will a can of Pillsbury biscuits, NOT the flaky kind, 4 tablespoons of butter, vegetable oil, sugar, and cinnamon if you like.
Start by pouring vegetable oil in a skillet, fill it up to about a half an inch. Next begin warming it on medium heat.
While the oil warms cut holes in the biscuits with a cookie cutter or any thing you can find to remove the center. Next melt your 4 tablespoons of butter and mix in sugar and (optional) cinnamon. Add the sugar and cinnamon to taste, keeping the mixture fairly liquid mixture. I apologize for being unable to give measurements but I’m more of the class of cooking without exact measurements.
After 5-7 minutes place the doughnuts in the oil, I fit 3 in at a time in a 10 inch skillet. They cook quickly so you must pay attention, one doughnut can be cooked in 2 minutes or less. After one side browns use tongs to flip it over. Use tongs to remove from skillet and drop in butter/sugar mixture and set on plate to dry.
The whole project can be done in 20 minutes or less.
Now you can enjoy delicious warm doughnuts in your own home, and in case you’re wondering they were a hit with my brother!
