Like so many others I loved these as a kid but nowadays I try to cut out the fat added by frying. Instead, roll the biscuits in sugar (with or without cinnamon), place in a lightly oiled pan, and bake them as directed on the biscuit tube. Yummy, yummy, yummy!!

OH MY GOD! These were so good. These doughnuts are my favorite part of a chinese buffet, I often get a few each time I go up to the buffet. Now I can have them in the comfort of my own home and they take about 10 minutes. It doesn't get any better.

Just made these for work. I used our buttermilk biscuit mix which we almost NEVER use except for VERY special occasions. I added some cinnamon and vanilla extract to give it a less "Just fried dough" taste. I also followed the frosting recipe listed on several other food.com donut recipes (essentially one part milk to eight parts sugar... I added nutmeg, vanilla extract, and honey to this as well). Everyone thought I was a nut until they tried them.
