This all started about 6 years ago when we did a big group camping trip with 5 families. That equates to 10 adults and 14 kids. Six years ago those kids were pretty little, like between 1 1/2 and 13. There's a story about that camping trip but it really isn't my story to tell. Maybe the owner of that story would share it with us sometime.
Anyway, it was on that outing that Katie exposed us to her donuts. (That almost sounds racy, doesn't it?)
Ingredients are simple ~ those inexpensive biscuits in a can and oil. You'll want powdered sugar and a mix of cinnamon sugar for dipping.
Katie cranks up the heat on the Coleman camp stove, puts the oil in her cast iron skillet and waits for it to get hot. Once the oil is good & ready she pokes a hole in the middle of each biscuit and places it in the oil. Cooking until a perfect golden brown then turning it over to do the same thing to the other side. Once they're done, remove them from the oil and place on paper towels to drain. Then dip them into either the powdered sugar or the cinnamon mixture, whatever is your preference. Mine happens to be powdered sugar. They're yummy. Not to mention healthy. Yea, right.
Turns out that Katie has taught her daughter, Maggie, how to create this culinary treat. Maggie makes a mean donut. If you try these, plan to make lots. It's easy to down these in multiples.
