The important thing with these biscuits is to keep them to a 1/2″ high and to keep your oil at a steady 350F


Units Scale



  1. Heat the oil to 350F
  2. Prepare the biscuit recipe and the lemon curd recipe.
  3. Cut the biscuit dough into rounds that are 1/2″ thick.
  4. Drop into the oil and fry until golden brown.
  5. Place the doughnuts on a baking tray lined with paper towel, let cool for a few moments.
  6. Poke a hole in the side of the doughnut and gently twist to open up a cavity in the center ( we used a chopstick).
  7. Place the cooled curd into either a piping bag or a squeeze bottle and fill the doughnut.
  8. Place the sugar in a paper bag and add the filled doughnut, gently shake to coast the doughnut with sugar.
