The 5 Minute Doughnut

Five minutes. That's all it took. Pinky swear. Five minutes to make these delicious doughnuts. All you need is a tube of refrigerated Pillsbury Italian Bread Dough and about 1/4 cup of granulated sugar - maybe less.

1. Just take out the dough and chop them up into 2 inch cubes with a pizza cutter.
2. Heat up some oil (about 1 cup) - in a medium sauce pan. Once the oil is heated, lower the heat and drop in the cut up dough. Cook about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown (make sure that your heat is not too high otherwise you will burn them).
3. Place the fried dough on a piece of paper towel to soak up the extra oil. Then put them in a large bowl, toss in the sugar to coat and you're done! Instant doughnuts!

I didn't get to take a picture because we forgot about it but these doughnuts are also yummy with fruit preserves on top. I use these from Bonne Maman.

While I made the doughnuts, my three monkeys were busy monkeying around. Until Wendy the pup started peppering them with kisses.

Yum. Yum. Yum. These didn't last long. They aren't the best thing for breakfast. But they were fast, easy, and delicious. As you can see, the kids devoured them.

Try it - you won't be disappointed!


  1. Thanks (said in a sarcastic tone)...just what I need. More reasons to add to this baby bump ;)
    Mr.Wonderful brought my favorite chocolates home as a surprise treat today. Between the chocolate and the donuts I am gonna be in trouble.

  2. OH my goodness. These look delicious! Thanks for sharing.
