If you've never had one of those tasty little donuts from your local Chinese restaurant, you're really missing out. This Chinese donut recipe is a way to make a homemade version that is almost as good as the real thing! These little munchkin-type donuts are rolled in fried in a pan and dusted with sugar to create a hot and crispy, bite-sized snack with a slightly sweet finish. You'll crave the restaurant version, but at least you can come close with this copycat Chinese donut recipe that you can make whenever the mood strikes.

One of the best things about this recipe is that it's a snap to make. You might think that cooking homemade donuts is messy or difficult, but nothing could be further from the truth! All you have to do is cut up pieces of frozen dough, roll them in our tasty blend of sugar and spice, and pan fry away. They'll be done and ready to snack on in no time!

Easy

  4. Remove from oil and place on paper towel to drain extra oil.

  5. Coat with sugar and cinnamon.

Chinese donuts are my FAVORITE thing at buffets. I could eat twenty of these. Love that the biscuit dough is pre-made!

I love that you have a video tutorial for this recipe. It makes this so much easier!

YUM! I love the donuts Chinese restaurants. I love that this recipe uses store-bought biscuit dough - so easy!

I could not help but think of Homer Simpson when I read the title of Donuts - lol. I like all kinds of donuts but I seldom eat at any Chinese restaurants. I can appreciate the chef when she elected to use refrigerated biscuits. This will be a quick version of a sweet donuts, Chinese restaurant style.

The donuts at the Chinese Restaurant are one of my favorites. I will be happy if these turn out half as good as they are on the buffet.

Oh, my goodness...I've always wondered how those yummy donuts that I daydreamed about from the Chinese restaurants were made and I can't believe just how easy it really is even if it is a copycat recipe. But for some odd reason, I feel like after the biscuit donuts have fried in the oil they should be brushed with some coconut oil or butter then rolled in the cinnamon sugar.

These are my favorite things at any Chinese buffet! I can't wait to try these out. They look super simple!
