These Campfire Doughnuts can be cooked on a skillet or cast iron pan over a fire or on your caravan/motorhome cooktop, so this is good for both campers and RV'ers alike.
The best thing about this recipe is you can change the toppings to what ever you like, so go nuts for doughnuts (sorry I had too) and go crazy with these sweet treats!
Peanut or vegetable oil
1 can of biscuit dough
Fun options: frosting, sprinkles, or powdered sugar for different twists on your doughnuts
1. Heat the Oil
Heat 2-3 inches of oil in a skillet, until “shimmering”. Test the heat of the oil with a small piece of biscuit dough. If the dough browns, and begins to fry, it’s ready! If the dough sinks to the bottom and does nothing, it’s not ready. Another trick to test the temperate of the oil is to use a wooden chopstick. If you stick the chopstick in and small bubbles come out- your oil is hot!
2. Make a Doughnut Shape
Remove the biscuits from their can, and poke a hole in each one making a doughnut shape. You may need to pull the hole open a bit to make it into a true O shape.
Drop your doughnuts very carefully into the oil. Fry on each side until brown. When finished frying, remove from the oil and let cool on a wire rack.
4. Coat the Doughnuts
While the doughnuts are still warm, either dip them in the cinnamon sugar, or toss them with the cinnamon sugar in a paper bag. You can also choose to frost your doughnuts or coat them in powdered sugar.
