This doughnut recipe was in our morning email from Allrecipe. Since we had a tube of buttermilk biscuit dough on hand, we decided to try them.

"When you're hungry for doughnuts, but don't have the time to mix a dough, try this quick and tasty treat."
oil for deep frying
1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated buttermilk
1 cup confectioners' sugar
|1.||Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). I used a medium pot and my candy thermometer. I made three at a time.|
|2.||Separate out the biscuits and cut a hole in the middle of each one, like you would a doughnut. I used a length of 3/4" PVC pipe from the art room that I dipped into flour to press out the holes. It is now part of my kitchen gear.|
You can get creative on this part and make different shapes. Just be sure not to make them too thick in any places, or they will not cook all the way through.
|3.||Carefully slide doughnuts into hot oil. I made the holes first and they came out very round. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain briefly on wire racks placed over baking sheets.|
|4.||Place the confectioners' sugar in a bowl and roll the hot doughnuts in the sugar. You could also use sugar and cinnamon or melted chocolate, or just plain.|
They were really easy to make, and although not quite "Crispy Creams" they were quite good.
I have decided they would be great to make in the RV for my grandsons when we take them to the Rose Bowl parade in December. Boys love doughnuts, and so do Grandmas!
Good for us? NO! But sometimes a sugar doughnut or three is just what you want for breakfast, and these are so easy I had to share the recipe with you.
RV research: I had read somewhere that the shorter diesels had some problems with "popping" or "lurching." I read quite a few comments on the RV forums and the advice was to just be sure you did a good test drive on the highway with any rig before you decide to buy. Every comment from shorty owners was positive. This does not seem to be a really big problem.
The other issue I looked into was "salt air damage." Since the latest MH I've been looking into is in Monterey California, I wanted to know what kind of damage to look for. It seems body rust might be a problem. Also we should be sure to have the breaks and hydraulics carefully inspected for salt damage.
Good reasons to have a professional inspection done.
But first I will have to see the rig in person. Hope to make that happen this week.
