Homemade doughnuts are so easy with this quick recipe! Just a few ingredients and these Semi Homemade Cinnamon Sugar Doughnuts are ready for a sweet breakfast treat.

We only have a few days left of Christmas break around here. In a few days, the kids and Mr Plain will be back to work/school and it’s back to our regular daily routine. Kinda a bummer. 🙁

But, since the kids have been on break, breakfast is a bit easier. We haven’t needed to get everybody up, dressed, fed and out the door to the bus in a mere hour,so, I decided to make doughnuts over break.

These doughnut are very quick and very easy.  They vare also really easy to kids to help out with.  It’s just a little recipe of my own that I’ve been making since forever.

Just a few notes:

  • I use a standard buttermilk biscuit for these. You can use a “flaky” biscuit, but, baking time, plus, ingredients may differ.
  • The biscuits may unroll a bit while baking..this is fine. They will still taste amazing!  But, if you want them to stay perfect circles, freeze the dough for 15 minutes (approx) before baking. This will hold the shape a bit better, but, you may have to increase your baking time just a bit.

They are really good and it’s tough not to eat just one!
