Chinese Buffet Style Donuts

Many chinese buffets have donuts that you go to have a variety of fried foods.  One that I have seen over and over again, are these “donuts”.  You can make these home anytime you like.  Start with a can of refrigerated biscuit dough, and you will soon have some of these tasty treats.  We have all enjoyed these simple to make donuts. Now you can make them at home.

Chinese Buffet Style Donuts

These are so easy to make and everyone loves them!


  • 1 can refrigerated biscuits
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • oil to deep fry in


Use either a deep fryer, or a large deep skillet. Be sure to add enough of oil to line the bottom of the pan a couple of inches deep.

one side, turn over. When golden brown on both sides remove from oil, and drain on paper towels. Pour sugar into a small container, and once the donuts have cooled slightly toss the donut into the sugar, and coat on both sides. Be sure to fry only a couple at a time.

    Made these tonight but I used my frozen yeast pre-made rolls. Thawed and allowed them to proof. Flattened out to about 1 ” thickness, deep fried in 375 degree canola oil.Once golden brown on both sides, rolled them in white granulated sugar. So good!!!
    Next time I am going to fill all of them with jelly! Linda Winchell

    How do I cook.them using a skillet


      Yes you can they cook quickly. Have your eve’s on them at all times. Make sure there thoroughly cooked before you rook them in sugar. Pan frying doesn’t make a difference at all then deep frying! Have fun!

      If you want them to be that exact shape you can. Yes!

    I tried making them but the inside is not fully cooked yet When the outer is like almost burnt already. Am I doing something wrong?

      Try to make them smaller. A lot of the time they are just to big. Your dough maybe to cold also.

    • Mitch

      This always happens to me when the oil is too hot. Just turn down the burner and you will have much better results.


        Cook it on about 300 for 2 to 3 minutes
