MMMM Doughnut Holes

 DSC_0360Does anybody else get the craving for fresh homemade doughnuts. Then once you have searched for your recipe and found the perfect one the prep time is an hour! Who wants to wait that long?! I want doughnuts and I want them NOW! SO here is the world EASIEST recipe (actually I don't think you can even call it that!) Here is the quickest homemade doughnuts with out a hard recipe to follow. In fact you can make these for the family and neighbors and take credit for slaving over these! 

Simply grab refrigerator rolls. I had some Pillsbury Grand's in my fridge so this is what I used. You can use any brand any style they all work great! DSC_0344Next you will need a doughnut hole cutter. Don't have one, Ill show you mine! DSC_0345 Yep it is the top of a water bottle! It works to get the perfect size doughnut hole!DSC_0346 DSC_0347       

If you want at this point you can punch a hole in the center of the biscuit and it will fry up a doughnut but I like the doughnut holes, you get more ;) Simply punch out all the dough and then fry up. I fried them at *350 in my deep fryer for about 5 minutesDSC_0349They will come out nice and golden!  DSC_0353next pick your topping. I usually do a batch of cinnamon & sugar and then one of Powdered sugar! DSC_0357 Then sit back and sample! Enjoy your homemade doughnut holes in less then 10 minutes! The best part is when friends ask for your recipe!
