A while ago I ran across this recipe for doughnuts made using canned biscuit dough. E is allergic to dairy (among other things) but I found a type of dough that was dairy-free (although it contains beef tallow so sorry, vegans) and it was game-on.
It was only 15 minutes from E and I deciding some fresh doughnuts would be lovely to us holding these treats in our hot little hands.
All you do is
- Heat up some vegetable oil (about 1/2 inch) on med to med-high heat
- Pull apart the canned biscuits and cut out holes
- When the oil’s ready (I like to test it by dropping in a doughnut hole) add the doughnuts, getting each side golden brown.
- Pull them out and then dip each side in melted butter (vegan margarine for us) and then toss in cinnamon sugar.
Because of E’s food allergies it can be hard to find baked goods he can have, let alone ones that are delicious and quick to make. This is the most excited I’ve been about a recipe in a long time. They are sooo good when they’re fresh and hot.
