Cinnamon Donuts


Hello!  Two donuts posts in one month...who am I? Oh yeah, someone that can wants needs to eat something sweet everyday.  I woke up before my alarm today and as I lay in bed donuts came to mind.  Totally normal.  I decided that I would make two different versions.  I gave y'all the full recipes but I did half fried and half baked this morning. 

Baked Cinnamon Donuts:
Ingredients

Pillsbury Home-style Biscuits
3/4 Cup Sugar
3/4 Tsp Cinnamon
6 TBSP Melted Butter  

1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Punch a whole in the middle of the biscuits with somethin' circular. {I used our garlic press}


2.  Mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a medium size bowl. 

3.  Drop the dough in the bowl of butter, roll it in the cinnamon sugar mixture, and place on a baking sheet.  



3.  Bake the donuts for 14-16 minutes.  



I recommend you eat these warm and with coffee! They are divine if you dip them in coffee.  Being honest I would not make these if you were not going to eat them right away.  They started to taste a little too biscuit-like when they cooled {I love biscuits so I am still eating them...}.

Fried Cinnamon Donuts
Ingredients

Pillsbury Home-style Biscuits
3/4 Cup Sugar
3/4 Tsp Cinnamon
Oil

1.   Begin to heat the oil in a large dutch oven to 350 degrees.  You want about 1-2 inches of oil.  Punch a whole in the middle of the biscuits with a circular object. {see picture above, I used our garlic press}

2.  Mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a medium bowl. 

3.  Carefully drop dough in the oil.  Allow dough to cook about for about 30 seconds on each side.  You want them to be a nice golden brown.  

4.  Using a slotted spatula to remove the donut from the oil and place in the cinnamon sugar bowl.  Move the donut all around until fully covered {The end of a spoon through the middle works well}.   




5.  Enjoy with coffee!

I fried the donut holes and they were my favorite part.  Next time I might just make donut holes...



Someone on instagram asked which way turned out better and I couldn't pick.  If you are wanting a real donut texture and taste then fry them bad boys.



If you are wanting more of a cake/scone/biscuit-like texture then bake them.
