Life Love Larson: Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

These are NOT healthy, but you will have fun making and eating them with your kids! 

Drew has afternoon preschool a few days a week, so most mornings we lay low and hang out.  I am trying to enjoy these quiet mornings while both kids are at home.  I am also trying to sprinkle in some fun breakfasts here and there.


You will need butter, refrigerated biscuits, cinnamon, sugar, and oil.


Hollow the center and shape each biscuit until it starts to look like a donut (ours were far from perfect)!


Heat your oil and brown on both sides.


Place on plate with paper towel.  Melt butter, dip donut in butter, cover with cinnamon/sugar mixture.  Besides eating, this is the most fun for the kids!


These were really tasty (obviously) and really easy.  The kids loved them and we will be making them again soon!


You can find the original pin and inspiration for these at

Linking up with:


  1. I love love love these. We made them with our kids and then our grands. We make the donuts, get out 3 or 4 bowls..powdered sugar in one, chocolate syrup in one, chopped nuts in one and cinnamon/sugar in one.
    They can choose their toppings and it's so fun and soooo good.

  2. Those do look really fun AND easy! Great idea! I'd love for you to add it on my link party at: Thanks!

  3. Ahhh! You found my weakness! I cannot stop myself when there are sugar doughnuts!

  6. i am guessing you did not plan for a few of those donuts to have the magical heart in the middle! they are sooooo imperfectly perfect!


    1. Michele-I went back and looked and you are right! Love it! Thanks for pointing it out!

  7. We are donut lovers!! This looks delicious! We are so happy that you linked up to our "Strut Your Stuff Saturday" and we hope you see you back next week!! -The Sisters

  8. My boys would LOVE these! We tend to bake when the afternoons get long because we decided to stay home rather than get out. Probably not the healthiest of activities to do frequently, but at least we're making memories!
