Recipe ~ Day 1

The "experts" say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I am not one that eats a big breakfast every morning, but there are special occaisions where breakfast jump starts the day. I remember as a young girl that my mom would make "homemade donuts" for us on the first day of school, and sometimes on Christmas morning... I don't know if it is the nice memory that makes it my favorite, or if it's the melt-in-your-mouth flavor but one thing is for sure, this is not the breakfast the experts were talking about... this is a special occaison, no cares about calories breakfast!

Homemade Donuts (it's simple, but soooooo good!)

1 or 2 cans of buttermilk biscuits (depending on the number of people)
deep fryer or electric frying pan
vegetabl or canola oil for frying
small brown paper bag
1-2 cups sugar

Using a small cap (I use the cap off my vanilla extract) gently cut a hole in the middle of each biscuit (just like using a cookie cutter). Reserve the cut holes for donut holes. Heat oil to 325°F. Carefully drop in several donuts at a time. Cook until golden brown on each side (donuts will have to be flipped during the cooking process for even cooking). Once first batch of donuts are cooked, remove from hot oil and place immediately in brown paper bag filled with *2 cups of sugar. Shake bag to coat donuts, remove and place on platter. Continue with remaining donuts and eventually with the donut holes as well. Serve warm with a steaming cup of hot cocoa or coffee and enjoy~

*You can use confectioners sugar as well, but it tends not to coat as well as regular sugar!

This recipe sounds great! My grandma always makes homemade doughnuts when we go to visit her. I especially love eating the holes when they're hot. Yummmm...
