Two Ingredient Doughnut

Doughnuts are a delicious way to start your day. Don't worry if you have a fear of baking with yeast or just don't have the time. This recipe will save you time but still give you decadent homemade flavor. We glazed our doughnuts, but they are perfect with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar as well.

  • Servings



  • Vegetable oil, for frying

  • 1

    (8-count) can jumbo buttermilk biscuits


  • 1

    cup powdered sugar

  • ½

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 to 3

    tablespoons heavy cream


To a medium pot, add about 3 to 4 inches of vegetable oil. Heat the oil to 360°F. While the oil is heating, open the biscuits, and cut out the middles using a small, 1-1/2-inch cookie cutter (or doughnut cutter). Fry the doughnuts and holes in the hot oil for about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown on each side. Fry the doughnuts in batches so you don't crowd the pan. Dip the doughnuts in glaze if desired. DOUGHNUT GLAZE: In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and heavy cream. If the mixture is too thick, add a little more heavy cream. If the mixture is too thin, add a little more powdered sugar.
