(Note: I Am Not Responsible For Any Injuries Caused By The Oil)
(Another Note: I Have Never Made These Myself, I Just Watched And Helped. So I Don't Know EVERYTHING About It.)
Step 1: Gather Materials
You Will Need:
Empty Coffee Can (With Lid)
The Canned Biscuits You Have To Twist To Open
2 Dinner Plates
Rag Or Paper Towels
A Coke Cap (Or Any Other, It Dosen't Matter. It Just Has To Round)
If You Want A Child To Be Involved, You Should Only Let Them Do The Parts That They Can Handle And The Parts That Won't Injure Them.
Step 2: Prep
Clear The Kitchen Table Off. Wipe It With A Moist Towel Or Rag, As You Will Need It To Be Clean. Pour The Vegetable Oil In The Pan About 1/2 Full. Depending On The Size Of The Pan, You May Want Less. Put As Much Powdered Sugar You Want In The Coffee Can. Heat The Oil Up To Where It's Hot, And Barely Bubbling. Have One Of The Dinner Plates On The Counter Near You So You Can Put The Donuts On Them After They Come Out Of The Grease. I Don't Know the Exact Degrees. Like I Said, I Don't Know Everything About Making These.
The pics are the items you will need for this step.
Step 3: While the Oil Heats
Open The Biscuits, Set One Of The Dinner Plates On The Table. Flatten The Biscuits Down, But Not To Much, They Need To Puff Up When You Put Them In Oil. Use The Cap To Twist A Hole In The Middle. Now Put The Donut And Donut Holes On The Plate. This Is A Great Part For Kids To Help With.
Have The Powdered Sugar In the Coffee Can on the table.
Step 4: When the Oil Is Ready
Most Likely, The Oil Will Heat Up Before You Can Put A Hole In All The Biscuits. That's Okay. Just Grab Some Donuts And Donut Holes And Put Them In The Grease. They Will Cook Very Quickly, So Have Your Tongs Ready. Keep Putting The Donuts And Donut Holes In The Grease And Setting Them On The Plate Until They Are All Cooked.
Step 5: The Finished Product
This Is Another Fun Part The Kids Can Help On. Put Some Donuts And Some Of The Holes In The Coffee Can. Then You Can Shake Shake Shake It Up (If The Kid's Are Helping, Let Them Do This). Put Them On The Plate That's On The Kitchen Table. Then Keep Doing That Until There All Done And Voila, Donuts!
