An Easy Way To Make Donut Holes

The family loves donuts. And when the family loves something, I have to learn how to make ‘em instead of buying boxes from Krispy Kreme or at the grocery stores. I haven’t really dedicated myself in learning how to make the donuts like how the latter stores make it. As a matter of fact, I just accidentally came upon the easiest way to make donuts one day. Mini Donuts or Donut Holes (however you call it) to be exact. When I told the husband and son not to grab another box of donuts a couple of weeks ago because I planned on making some their “really???” reactions were priceless. Talk about a “challenge.”

An Easy Way To Make Donut Holes


  • 1 tube buttermilk biscuits
  • oil for frying
  • sugar
  • ground cinnamon


  • Heat up oil in a deep pan. Combine 1/4 cup of sugar and 2 tbsp of ground cinnamon in a bowl. Set aside. In another bowl, add 1/4 cup of sugar and set aside as well.
  • Pop the tube of biscuits. Cut 1 biscuit in 4 quarters. Roll each quarter to form a ball.
  • Fry up the donut holes in the hot oil until golden brown. About 6-8 minutes or so. You’ll probably have to do this in batches. Drain the excess oil.

You can use powdered sugar too if you want.

I actually got this idea from watching Cooking for Real on Food TV. I made this from memory so my version is a little modified. The host added orange zest in her sugar & cinnamon mixture. These donut holes are better if served immediately. If you have leftovers, just warm them up in the microwave for a few seconds before serving again. There you go, I hope you get to make them and enjoy these donut holes/mini donuts with your family. Don’t you just love how easy it is?
