Quick & Easy Apple Cider Glazed Donuts

A simple donut using a kitchen staple with a cinnamon sugar coating and a warm apple cider glaze.


  • 1 16.3 oz can refrigerated biscuit dough, NOT flaky or butter flavored
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp warm apple cider
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • canola oil, for frying


  • In a dutch oven, or cast iron skillet, heat the oil over medium heat until the oil reaches 350 degrees.
  • In a small, shallow bowl, use a fork to whisk together the regular sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk together the cider and powdered sugar until the glaze is smooth and completely incorporated.
  • Separate the dough into the 8 precut biscuits. Using a small cutter, like a large water bottle lid, cut out holes in the middle. Save the circles for donut holes.
  • Working in batches of 2-3, add the dough to the hot oil, frying each side until golden brown. Remove the cooked donuts to paper towels to drain excess oil.
  • Carefully transfer the warm donuts to the cinnamon sugar mixture and gently toss to coat evenly. Transfer the coated donuts to a cooling rack to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining biscuit dough until all the donuts are cooked, coated, and cooled.
  • Drizzle the warm apple cider glass out evenly over the donuts, and serve immediately.
