Easy Homemade Doughnut Recipe & Other Tasty Treats

June 8, 2013

I love food. I also love doughnuts. Unfortunately, our local Krispy Kreme – who made the best donuts ever! – has shut down due a fire. They claim that they are planning to re-open in a new location – hopefully closer to downtown – fingers crossed – but have not yet found a new location.

In the meantime, folks in Roanoke are writing parody news articles as well as freaking out a little. Rather than succumb to the chaos of a doughnut-less society, however, you can make your own even if – like me – you aren’t the best cook. While they probably won’t compare to the glory that Krispy Kreme holds in most Roanokers’ hearts, they do make for a tasty and fun afternoon with the kids.

Easy Homemade Doughnut Recipe via Cake Spy - Make Donuts From Canned Biscuit Dough - Great Family Project

Cakespy.com, a deliciously tempting blog that covers everything cakes, cupcakes and pies galore as well as explains why cupcakes are nutritious – I mean the sugar gives you energy, right? – offers up an easy recipe and tutorial for how to make doughnuts using refrigerated biscuits in a can (pictured above.)

These fried delights are ready in 15 minutes or less and can be topped with any combination of icing, sugar or sprinkles you can imagine. Plus it’s the perfect project to do with stir crazy kids on an afternoon while they’re waiting for the rain to clear out. (Although the sugar could possible mean more chaos if the rain decides to hang on.)

Homemade Coconut Panna Cotta Recipe via Camille Styles

If you’re looking for a taste that’s still sweet but with a lot less sugar, then definitely try out Jess Simpson’s recipe for making Homemade Healthy Coconut Panna Cotta on Camille Styles Blog (pictured above.) It’s made with coconut milk, yogurt, honey and some delicious spices like nutmeg and ginger.

I’m also crushing over the Summer Crush Drink Recipe made with gin, peaches, fresh basil, lime, Lillet, club soda and agave syrup.

      You don’t have to make the dough. They’re made from pre-made biscuit dough you buy in the refrigerated section!
