If you're craving donuts in the morning (or even at midnight), these are super simple and fast to make. They're also very yummy. You probably have the ingredients on hand right now... so go ahead... make some donuts (and eat them while they're still warm)!

1 package refrigerated biscuits (I used Pillsbury Grands Buttermilk)
vegetable oil
4 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons cinnamon

Remove biscuits from package and use a small circular cookie cutter to cut a hole in each biscuit. 
Add vegetable oil to a deep pan until it reaches about 1/2 inch from the bottom of the pan. Heat over medium-high until the oil glistens (should only take a few minutes).

Meanwhile, combine the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. I never exactly measure cinnamon and sugar. Just add as much cinnamon as you like to the sugar to fit your taste.

When the oil is hot, carefully drop a few of the "donuts" into the oil (I fit about 3 in my pan, but the number you can cook at one time will depend on the size of your pan). Fry on one side until golden brown. Then flip over using a pair of tongs, and fry until golden brown on the other side. The donuts will puff. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel lined plate. Continue cooking the remaining donuts in the oil. Don't forget the donut holes too!

When your donuts are cool enough to handle, dip each one in the melted butter and then in the cinnamon sugar to coat completely. 

If you're not a fan of the cinnamon sugar donut, you could always top them with a little chocolate frosting and sprinkles. Or you can coat them in powdered sugar.

These would be perfect with a cup of your favorite coffee.
I made this coffee mug for Katie

so fun!
