Blah, but wait! there are Kateena doughnuts!

I have been having a real case of BLAAAHS lately.  I don't know why.  I think I have a small underlying cold, that thankfully has not gotten ugly, but is just lightly lingering.  I think that is why I haven't posted really. That and the manlet is home for February vaca and underfoot ALWAYS.

Never the less, I made doughnuts for the men.  Proof positive I am just a bit off- I am not really wanting to eat them.  Kateena made these for the kids a few weeks ago and they were DEE LISH!!  So I re created them myself, manlet is completely sticky right now and I am certain the hubs will enjoy them as well.  This may be one of those well known things to do, but I was flabbergasted when I saw Kateena do it.

Easy PEASY to do.  Fill a pan with about and inch of cooking oil and heat over medium heat.  Take a can of biscuits, lay them out and cut holes out of each one.  I could not find a small enough cookie cutter ( shocking as there are more than 100 in this house) so I improvised and used the wrong end of my baster....that's right, it's not just for turkeys anymore.  ooohhhhh turkey. yum.

When I was finished cutting the holes, I took a small bit of dough and tossed it into pan to test the oil temp.  When it starts to sizzle you are good to go.
Carefully place ( I used my hands, but you could use a spatula or other utensil if you are more cautious) each doughnut and or whole into the oil.  Allow to cook in oil for about 45 -60 seconds, you want to make sure the dough cooks all the way thru.  Flip to cook other side using a bamboo skewer.

When the dough is cooked thru, remove from the oil and place on a paper toweled plate to drain off excess oil.

Glaze?  Too easy!  Milk, powdered sugar, and a teaspoon and a half of vanilla.  Mix till you have the thickened consistency you would like and BATHE, yea I said it BATHE the doughnuts in it.  

It's a good thing we are joining another gym- more on that later- because we are going to need it with these hanging around.


  1. Yummy, makes me crave doughnuts now! I've made them before in the deep fryer but it's been a while. I've used a soda bottle lid to cut out the middle and coat the doughnuts with sugar. I like the glaze topping you used. Will have to try that next time when we make ours.
