Fried Biscuit reminded of those sugar duster donuts we get in Malaysia.I was first introduced to this “donut” at a Chinese Buffet Restaurant about 8-9 years ago. I never knew how easy it was to make it until a friend of mine leaked the secret!. All you need is a can of plain biscuit, oil and granulated sugar for dusting! It was a easy, yummy treat which reminded me of home and my younger days chasing down the cake van that drives around the neighborhood to buy a sugary donut skewer and other baked goodies!
EASY FRIED BISCUIT / EASY DONUT RECIPE
- 1 Canned Biscuit (Regular Buttermilk)
- Oil (for deep frying)
- 1-2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar (pr more depending on preference)
Heat enough oil over medium low heat. Once oil is hot, drop in biscuits and deep fry them for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Be sure not to over crowd your pan with too many biscuits (they will also poof up a little) at one time. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle or coat the fried biscuit with some sugar. Serve warm! Now wasn’t that EASY??
You do have to make sure your oil is not overly hot. You will end up with a golden brown outside and a gooey uncook dough inside. Alternatively, you can cut the biscuits into half and roll it into smaller balls before deep frying them to ensure that the fried biscuit will cook thoroughly. Another way is to use a small round cookie cutter to stamp out the middle of the dough, and deep fry mini “donuts” and “donut-holes” you get from this method. Enjoy!
