The closest Shipley’s is in Hoover, AL 3 hours away (the best doughnuts in the world for you non-Texans). Krispy Kreme is too sweet, Dunkin Donuts is too cakey, not that it stops me from eating either one.
I made doughnuts last Saturday in hopes of having a hot and fresh doughnut (or is it donut? I don’t think so.) at home.
I didn’t feel like making the dough from scratch, and I had seen online people raving about using canned biscuits as the dough. Seemed easy enough. Plus, the recipe was a Paula Deen one and had 5 stars for 191 reviews, couldn’t be bad.
I cut the biscuits
and dropped them into the Fry Daddy
Then covered them in the glaze
and ate them.
And they weren’t that good. Super, super heavy. Like a very thick cake. Plus, let’s just say that these fried pastries did not agree with my stomach.
I’m glad I tried it. These were easy to make, but I think my stomach and waistline will be in favor of me not making these again. But there’s always the drive thru.
