Time To Make The Donuts

No, literally its time to make the donuts! 🙂 I know everyone loves a donut every now and again, right? I do! I had the craving this morning and made cinnamon & sugar donut holes. All you need is a can of biscuits (I keep extra in fridge because they come in handy) and pull them apart into three’s and role into balls. You could also make regular size donuts by placing a hole in the center of the biscuit. Heat your peanut oil on the stovetop until its nice and warm then reduce the heat to a medium-low or low. You may want to test a few before hand to make sure your oil is the right temperature before you toss them all in. You will continuously flip with your tongs until golden brown on all sides and cooked all the way through. Place the cooked donuts onto a plate covered with paper towels to absorb any extra oil and then toss in your cinnamon & sugar mixture. You will need 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1/4 cup of sugar to coat. Bam~you have donuts! Tasty little weekend treat 😉

Coffee Cake

Good Morning! I wanted to indulge this morning and treat myself to something sweet so I decided to make a coffee cake and its absolutely positively Delicious! Oh, and simple to prepare which is the best part 🙂 Make it for your guest and they will swear it took hours or came from the bakery! Although, I’m not really sure why its called coffee cake other than the fact you may drink a cup of coffee with it because there is no coffee in the recipe.
Recipe as Follows:
1/2 cup of pecans
1/2 cup of parkay
1/2 cup of brown sugar / splenda blend OR you can do 1 cup of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of water
2 cans of biscuits (10 in a can)
Heat oven to 375 degrees
Open biscuits and pull apart each biscuit and roll into balls. There should be 20 balls per can (40 total when done rolling into balls). Melt a tiny bit of parkay and pour into bundt pan, sprinkle with some nuts. Continue to melt and stir the remaining ingredients in a sauce pot. Take 20 of the biscuit balls and place in bundt pan. Pour over melted mixture. Layer the next 20 biscuit balls and pour remaining mixture. Pop in the oven and cook for 20 to 25 minutes. Have a little cup of coffee and a slice of heaven! 🙂
