Easy Jelly Filled Donuts

I’m sure by now you know I love donuts and you know that I’ve fallen in love with making them at home – the easy way with canned biscuits. These easy jelly filled donuts are just as easy to make starting with canned biscuits again.

Instead of cutting out a donut hole you’re going to fry up the whole biscuit. Then you’re going to insert jelly into the middle with a pastry bag and tip. Then cover donuts with powdered sugar and enjoy.

Easy Jelly Filled Donuts
  • 1 can large biscuits (not flaky)
  • raspberry jelly
  • powdered sugar
  1. Heat a large bottomed pot over medium high heat filled with ½ inch of oil.
  2. Fry a few donuts at a time for about 1 to 2 minutes, then flip over to fry both sides till golden brown.
  3. Scoop your jelly into a pastry bag or baster. Insert baster end into the side of the donut and squeeze a small amount into the center of each.
  4. Pour powdered sugar into a medium sized bowl and dip all sides of each donut into the powdered sugar.
