Easy Donuts for Breakfast

In the weeks leading up to  Valentine's weekend I've posted and planned different ideas for Valentine's breakfast. From heart shaped biscuits and bacon, egg and cheese heart shaped sandwiches to chocolate cardamom pancakes - I've kicked my ideas into overdrive. 

Then I went and made something really easy instead.

One of the best email's I've gotten lately was an issue of Serious Eats in which they offered a super easy way to make donuts. In fact the main ingredients is Pillsbury biscuits. 



Why didn't I think of that???
So I got up this morning with the idea in mind to make these super easy donuts. I got out the Valentine's sprinkles, powdered sugar and made chocolate ganache and by the time my husband was out of the shower, they were all done. I cannot tell you how easy these were. I highly recommend this recipe. 



We paired it with some Cafe DuMonde coffee and a side of bacon and eggs. It was a great start to this sweet weekend.  Get the recipe here and have a great Valentines.

  1. Yum! I used to make donuts like this with my mom when I was a kid. We would take them out of the oil, dip in melted butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar. Goodness.

  11. My grandmother used to make these out of the biscuits too! It was a real treat to go to her house and help her make these. We didn't get the fancy glazes, but enjoyed these with a coating of powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar.

    This was back in the 1960s!
