Family time is a very important thing. If you are a mother with a young child, then finding great at-home activities to do together is a major topic of interest. Teaching your child to cook is fun for you both. And you get to enjoy the results. Here’s a great recipe for how to make donuts at home with just biscuit dough.
When you are deciding how to make donuts, you will need a few items. First of all, you need a deep pan or fryer. It has to be deep, though. You will need oil as well. If possible, use Canola oil. Then you, of course, need donuts. Usually, a roll of biscuits will make about ten donuts or more donut holes. It’s up to you and your kids how many you want to make. The store brand of biscuits works just fine. Last, there are the toppings. You can let your kids pick whatever they want to go on top of the donuts. Don’t forget the sprinkles!
You and your kids can both do this. If you want donut holes, then you can simply cut the biscuits up and let your kids roll them into balls. If you want regular donuts, let them punch the centers out with their thumbs. It may not look perfect, but they will taste just the same in the end. And, of course, it will be fun.
Fry the donuts.
You should do this step instead of your children. Heat up the oil. Make sure it is not too hot and drop the donuts in, a few at a time, depending on the size. Make sure they have enough time to float around. Cook them until golden brown on each side. Flip them over to check this. When they are done, pull them out and lay them on a paper towel to let the grease run off.
Put on the toppings.
Now it is time for the toppings. There are so many toppings to choose from. If you went with powdered sugar, don’t let all the grease run off the donuts and roll them in the powdered sugar. When they are completely coated, you can let them cool off the rest of the way. Powdered sugar is a very popular donut topping.
If your children chose frosting, as many do, let them frost their own donuts however they like. Give them a butter knife and let them make a mess. They can put their own sprinkles on, too. Let them be creative; just don’t do this before bed time or naptime, because it can cause a sugar rush.
The last step is to eat the donuts. You will enjoy this delicious snack as much as your children will. And they will have enjoyed the time spent with you helping make them. This is probably the best of the entire process of learning how to make donuts at home.
Teaching your children how to make donuts at home out of biscuit dough is a simple, but great activity that you and your children will enjoy. And they taste great!
