cast iron pan
biscuit doughPillsbury biscuits value pack is what we used.
Build a campfire and place a cast iron pan on the grate over the fire.
Fill cast iron pan 1/3 full with vegetable oil. Heat until the oil's surface is shimmery. Test oil temperature with a small piece of dough. If it starts to float and brown then the oil is hot enough. If it sinks and doesn't cook then the oil isn't hot enough yet. If it burns then your oil is too hot and you need to move the cast iron pan away from the direct flame a bit.
Shape each biscuit into a donut shape by poking a hole in the center and forming a ring. Once oil has reached the proper temperature add biscuit dough to the oil. Cook until bottom is browned then flip and cook until opposite side has browned. Once both sides have browned remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate to help soak up excess grease.
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (either in a brown paper bag or just sprinkle over the top of the donut). Serve immediately. Be careful they will be hot!
