Serves: 8


  • 1 package (16 oz.) Buttermilk Jumbo Biscuits
  • Canola oil
  • 1 container (3.75 oz.) Cinnamon & Sugar
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne powder (optional)
  • Hot chocolate, to serve (optional)


  • Fill a heavy-duty 2½ quart medium pot with 1”-2” canola oil. Heat on medium until 350°F registers on a candy thermometer.
  • Remove biscuits from tube. Cut each biscuit into quarters. Tightly roll each piece into a ball. Add cinnamon, sugar and cayenne to a medium bowl. Stir together.
  • When oil is hot, carefully drop 4-5 dough pieces at a time. Turn the dough until all sides are golden, cooking about 2 minutes.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove donut holes to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Immediately add donut holes to the cinnamon mixture (within 30 seconds of frying) and toss to coat.
  • Repeat with remaining dough. Serve on their own or with hot chocolate to dip in.
