When I was a kid, we used to visit my grandparent’s every other weekend. One of the things I remember about our time with her, we would make homemade donuts in her deep fryer. We don’t have a deep fryer, but I have started doing this on the stovetop and my boys love it! I used to watch a few neighbor kids before school, and it became our tradition to have homemade donuts on their late start days. The best part is that it’s SO easy!


  • 1 can Pillsbury Biscuits
  • vegetable oil
  • 1/2 stick margarine or butter
  • cinnamon
  • sugar
  • powdered sugar


  1. Fill a skillet about 1/3 full of vegetable oil on stovetop. Melt butter in microwave.homemade donuts in process
  2. As the oil is heating up, cut each biscuit into 4 pieces or use the Donut Cookie Cutter (This is what we used to use with my grandma!). I have also used a tall, skinny shot glass to make a whole in the center.  homemade donuts cut
  3. Once the oil is heated, drop biscuit pieces into it and watch. Once browned, flip over. When finished, place them on a paper towel covered plate. homemade donuts on the stove
