These Two Tricks Will Make Your Homemade Donuts Better Than Ever

If you are anything like me you grew up on homemade cinnamon sugar covered fried biscuit donuts.  Those things are amazing.  I even just did a recipe – if you could call it that – on them.   But now in part 2 I’m going to show you how to make them better than ever.

The first trick is so easy I don’t know why mom never thought of it.  Honestly I don’t know why I’m telling you because I’m sure you’ve already done this yourself.  It’s super easy.  Icing!  You can make an easy glaze with powdered sugar and water.  You can make it even better with powdered sugar and milk.  Powdered sugar and butter will make an amazing homemade icing.  But it’s hard to beat store bought icing.

Vanilla or Chocolate are my favorites but play around with this one.  Apply just like you would the cinnamon.  A hot donut will melt icing and create something your mouth will thank you for.

Wait, is that a long john?  You’re damn right it is!  You can shape biscuits into whatever you want.  Make some mickey mouse donuts for the kids.  Or make long johns, which for some inexplicable reason are amazing.

This brings me to my favorite. Filling donuts.  Flatten your donut out, put something in it, and fold it over to form a nice filled empanada type donut.  Now I’ve filled these with jelly before and they are to die for.  Jelly donut with cinnamon sugar, that’s good stuff.  But I came up with something last weekend that is pure fire.  I know a lot of people who recommend donuts as a camp desert and this is perfect for that too!  Marshmallows!

Marshmallow filling, chocolate icing, it’s the new smores!

I’m not even remotely kidding this was the best breakfast a kid could ask for.  Or a grown man.  It really changes the homemade donut scene and I hope you’ll give it a try.  Let me know how it turned out or if you have any other ideas I should try out in the comments.
