A few months ago I took my niece and nephew on a little food truck run. This trip was to Gourdough’s for donuts though. If you live in the Austin area, you have to try these. They put just about everything on their donuts.
I mentioned to three visiting aunts that I was going to make these donuts for my niece and I. Then I went on to explain the simple process that I learned about for the donuts and they all told me that’s how they used to make them! We are definitely going to have to start up our cooking classes with our aunts again soon – they need to share all this wisdom.
These donuts were truly simple to make and you can top them with almost anything. Of course, I had to add Nutella and Strawberries because that is what we always have in the house! Next up I’m thinking maple and bacon.
1 can Pillsbury Grand Biscuits
Lite Cool Whip
Add enough oil to a saucepan to be about 1 1/2 inches deep. Set heat to medium high. The oil is ready when it reaches 325 degrees or when you sprinkle a drop of water in the pan and it starts to sizzle.
Meanwhile, take the biscuits out of the can and separate. Take a small biscuit or cookie cutter (or like I did and use a medicine measuring cup) and make a hole in the center of the biscuit.
Once the oil is ready, add the biscuit dough one at a time (or more if you have room) and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Don’t forget to fry up those donut holes too!
Take donuts out of the saucepan and set on a paper towel covered plate to drain. Top with Nutella. Then add cool whip (or whipped cream) and sliced strawberries.
