Later today, I am meeting a fellow writer friend for lunch at Smokey Bones. If you are not familiar, Smokey Bones is a chain that features lots of barbecue. http://www.smokeybones.com/ I love their brisket, yet I am conptemplating a salad.
Why is that? Glad you asked. No, I an not on a diet. Yes, I still eat meat. I want a salad so that I can save room to have an order donuts for dessert. You see, Smokey Bones has these amazing donuts. They come to your table hot, in a brown paper bag. The cake donuts are generously coated in cinnamon and sugar. If that is not enough, you also get a strawberry dipping sauce.
For days I have been dreaming of these donuts with a cup of coffee! Sometimes when I crave hot donuts at home, I do the recipe that follows. I learned it in middle school Home-Ec, the place where I was taught life's most practical knowledge.
Canned Biscuit Donuts
Poke holes in indidual canned biscuits using a soda bottle top, or something of similar size. Fry in hot oil that has been heated in a large skillet or deep fryer. When golden brown, remove donuts from oil. You can shake them in powdered sugar, cinnamon and sugar; or frost them with chocolate or vanilla icing. Sprinkles are also fun!
