Possibly the best donut ever! Smoky mezcal meets sweet peaches and spicy jalapeño on a savory donut you won’t soon forget. We’ve created a donut hack that makes this an insanely fast and easy recipe. It requires no yeast, no rising or proofing and no baking skills.

The smokey sweet glaze and the spicy hot sauce are positively transformative on this so we use a ton of it. It’s messy in the absolute best way. Serve it on a plate with plenty of glaze and sauce and plus more on the side for dipping. Eat it with a fork and knife or just pull it apart and get your fingers messy. It’s beyond yummy.

Our Donut Hack

As much as I love sweets, I’m not a fan of sweets for breakfast. I’m just more of a savory girl. Enter the bisc-nut. This crazy hack on donuts makes them fast, easy and less sweet than traditional donuts. Traditional donuts require yeast and proofing. OMG really? I’m a cook, not a baker, and the thought of using yeast gives me hives. Plus I’m a bit ADD in the kitchen, I like the recipes that don’t require a lot of waiting for things. So I started using this genius hack years ago. Ready? You use those biscuits that come in a can from the grocery store, cut a hole in them and deep fry them. That’s it.

Making It Healthyish

We’re all about slow food so it certainly seems a contradiction to be advocating for a ready made biscuit from the grocery store. There are some better for you biscuit brands that you can find in the store like the ones from Immaculate Baking Company, but this is a processed food. It contains organic palm oil which is not horrible but certainly not something grandma would cook with. If you want to avoid processed foods completely, make a southern biscuit recipe and deep fry after shaping. You’ll get the same taste with only slightly more effort and still no yeast or proofing.

Smoky, Sweet and Spicy Donuts are as fast and easy as they are delicious.

  5. Deep fry just a few minutes per side until golden brown, turning to brown evenly.
