Homemade Glazed Donuts


We all dream of having a secret stash of our favorite cookies and the ability to make a batch of pancakes with a snap of the fingers. Alas, it’s hard to come by that sort of magic and most of us still have to get our hands dirty before the aforementioned cookies materialize in the kitchen.

Let’s make it easy, then.

Anyone for homemade donuts? They are super easy to make, chances are you already have most ingredients at home, and in about an hour you’ll have a fresh batch of donuts only for you.

This recipe is based on store-bought refrigerated biscuits and teaches you how to make your own milk and sugar glaze.

For the donuts you’ll need:

  • Refrigerated biscuit dough – large tube
  • Unscented coconut oil (or any other oil that’s good for frying – coconut oil has high thermal stability, meaning it doesn’t break down at high temperatures and is one of the healthiest options)

And for the glaze:

  • 1 fl oz milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • vanilla extract (optional)


  1. Melt coconut oil (a spoon or two) in a pan over medium heat. Make sure the bottom of the entire pan is evenly coated.
  2. Lay out the biscuit dough. Use something like a shot glass to punch holes and create your donut.
  3. When the oil is warm, place donuts in the pan and allow to cook for several minutes on each side, until the donuts are nice and brown. Remove donuts when done and put them on a plate to cool (you can also put a paper towel on the bottom of your plate, that will help soak up excess oil).
  4. Mix sugar, milk and vanilla extract in a bowl and then whisk until you get a smooth texture.
  5. You can pour the glaze over the donuts or dip each donut in the glaze. Dipping them will make them more evenly coated (just saying).
