Sweet, flaky, and delicious copy cat Chinese Donuts Recipe
I love those little sugary donuts that you get at Chinese restaurants! They melt in your mouth with their warm, sweet, taste! So, is it donut or doughnuts??
This seems to be a pretty split decision….half the people I ask say donut while the other half say doughnut. I guess it’s like the whole potato potato thing….except you can’t really hear the inflection in written form.
Well, the hubs and I are trying to eat out less and one of my new year’s resolutions was to try at least 2 new recipes a week- so of course, I had to make these! And let me just say…they taste exactly like the delicious little donuts from the Chinese restaurant!!!
To make things even better- they are ridiculously easy to make and crazy cheap! Once I found out this secret I was floored and now we enjoy this Chinese restaurant donut recipe all the time!
Chinese Restaurant Donuts
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 7 minutes
These easy to make Chinese donuts taste just like the ones you get at the Chinese Restaurants! Make these Chinese Restaurant Donuts for dessert tonight.
Oil for Frying
Get a cheap can of biscuits.
Pinch the biscuits in half
Heat about 2 cups of vegetable oil in a pan(enough to come half way up the biscuits). It’s ready when you put a drop of water in the oil and it sizzle
Carefully drop your biscuit pieces in the oil and cook till golden brown (about 2 minutes on each side)
Remove from oil and place on paper towel to drain extra oil
Coat with regular granulated sugar.
Change it up by mixing cinnamon into your sugar before coating donuts. Some restaurants use sesame seeds instead of sugar for a more traditional, savory flavor.

My oil got a little too hot so they turned out a bit browner than I would have liked but still tasted yummy! My daughter wanted some sprinkles so I drizzed a bit of honey on them which helped the sprinkles stick! She loved them :)

I have been making these for years. If you take any flavor of pudding you like, I prefer vanilla and place it in a plastic squeeze container. Pipe the pudding into the hot doughnut and put in paper bag with the cinnamon and sugar. Now you have a Hawaiian Malasada, Yummm!
