Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep


  • 1 can refrigerated flakey buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/4 cup dried blueberries
  • 3 cups canola oil


  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/6 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Zest of one lemon


  • 1-inch biscuit cutter
  • Slotted Spoon
  • Large Baking Tray
  • wire rack
  • Paper towels
  • Step 1

    Remove the biscuits from the can, separate them, and place them on a cutting board. Use a 1-inch round biscuit cutter to cut holes out of the center of each biscuit. Place dried blueberries in each biscuit, carefully cradling them in the dough so they are secure.

  • Step 2

    Add canola oil to the PossiblePot and place over medium-low heat, until oil reaches 375˚F. Carefully lower a few donuts at a time into the oil, blueberries facing up. Fry donuts on first side for 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden. Using slotted spoon, carefully flip the donuts and cook on the other side for 1 minute, or until golden.

  • Step 3

    When cooking is complete, transfer fried donuts to a wire rack set over a large tray or on paper towels to drain extra oil.

  • Step 4

    While donuts are cooling, prepare lemon glaze. In a large bowl, add confectioner’s sugar, whole milk, lemon juice, and whisk until smooth and creamy.

  • Step 5

    When donuts are completely cool, use a spoon to generously drizzle with lemon glaze. Sprinkle with lemon zest and allow to set for 5 minutes before serving.
