- 2 qt frying oil
- 1 can buttermilk biscuit dough
- 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 4 Tbsp milk
- 1 tsp orange juice
- Zest of 1 orange
- 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 cup honey, room temperature
- To prepare for the donuts, start by preheating a 3 to 4-qt Dutch oven with the frying oil to 350°F.
- To prepare the glaze, whisk together all of the glaze ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside.
- To prepare the donuts, sprinkle flour over a cutting board or clean work surface and lay the biscuits on the floured surface. Using a 1/2" ring, punch out the center of each.
- Working in batches, add half of the donuts and half of the donut holes to the Dutch oven and fry until the bottoms turn golden brown, 1 to 1.5 minutes for small donuts and 2 to 2.5 minutes for large donuts. Turn the donuts and holes, then fry for 1 to 2 minutes longer until golden brown.
- Remove them to a paper towel-lined plate and allow to cool slightly. Repeat with remaining donuts and donut holes.
- To glaze and garnish, dip each donut, 1 at a time, in the prepared glaze and then in the graham cracker crumbs. Place it crumb-side up on a roasting rack over a baking sheet. After all of the donuts have been dipped, drizzle them with the honey and serve warm.
