Vintage Donuts

Growing up in rural Oklahoma during  the 60's and 70's I had never heard of Daylight Donuts, Winchells or Krispy Kreme. Whenever we had a craving for donuts this is how my Mom made them.
They were made from cheap store bought biscuits.
You want to have everything ready before you start frying your biscuits, I mean donuts. You need a plate with paper towels to drain your donuts and whatever your want to dip your donuts in. We always used a mix of sugar and cinnamon and a simple glaze made with powdered sugar, milk and vanilla.
 
Open your biscuits and cut out holes from the center. These will be your donut holes. 
Your oil should be very hot but not smoking. Carefully brown each side of your donut, drain and dip. These are best served warm and with a glass of cold milk.  
A lot like Krispy Kreme, don't you think?

  1. Yummy! The first time I ever made these was in junior high school, and they were delicious. :) I made them more recently and jazzed up the toppings and they were just as good as I remembered. Great for a special breakfast.

  13. How easy is that. Nothing beat freshly fried donuts! I bet they're 10000X better than store bought ones. :) Thank you for sharing.

  14. What do you use for a glaze?

  15. I'm wondering about the glaze, too? What are the measurements?

  16. I'm sorry I didn't put exact measurements for the glaze. Start with 1 cup of powdered sugar, add 1 tsp vanilla, add 1 tblsp of milk at a time to make it a thin glaze. It will probably take 2-3 tablespoons of milk.
