How to make CHINESE DONUTS with 2 ingredients!

I’m spilling the secret to how Chinese restaurants make Chinese donuts, and how you can make them with just 2 ingredients!

You’ll need:

Deep Fryer
1 Tube of Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits
Sugar (& Cinnamon if desired)


  • Open the tube of buttermilk biscuits.
  • Cut one biscuit into quarters and roll into a ball.
  • Place in deep fryer for about 3-4 minutes, until completely cooked inside
  • Take out of fryer and drain onto paper towels.
  • Dust with sugar and enjoy!
  • I made these and they taste EXACTLY like the ones you get in the restaurants. One tube can yield 40 of these chinese donuts! Around here the restaurants charge about 50¢ each. One tube costs about $2.29. Now that’s a savings! Next time you order chinese takeout, make the donuts yourself and save some cash! Tip: Since it’s unlikely you will want to make all 40 at once, cut up all the donuts into quarters (40 per tube), roll them into balls and freeze them. Then the next time you want a donut you can just toss a frozen one into the fryer.

    This is EXACTLY how they make them. I watched them do it at a Chinese restaurant just recently. I couldn’t believe it when I saw them opening the biscuits.

    I have so done this before! If you cut a hole in the middle of the biscuits, fry them and then roll them in powdered sugar (or add glaze) they are just like normal doughnuts but take a bit longer to cook. Thanks for sharing!
