Doughnuts are without a doubt one of the best desserts on the planet. After all, what could be better than a sweet pastry fried in oil and butter! If you’ve ever considered making doughnuts but thought it would be too much effort, I have good news for you. You can make your own homemade doughnuts using only two ingredients.
All you need to make your own donuts is:
A tube of prepared cookie dough
And that’s it! Simply heat the oil in a cast iron skillet, drop in the dough and let it fry until puffed and golden brown (about 30 seconds per side). When they’re done frying, transfer them to a cooling rack and let the excess oil drip off.
You can sprinkle them with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar, and you can even make filled donuts! Simply use a paring knife to cut a small hole in the side of the doughnut, then use a piping bag and the filling of your choice to fill it.
And there you have it! If you want to whip up a quick dessert with virtually no effort or ingredients, this recipe has got your back.
