Easy Four Ingredient Elephant Ears

Today we continue Fair Week with one of my fair favorites – Elephant Ears!  Does your local fair serve these fried dough treats from heaven?? 


Elephant ears are huge pieces of dough stretched thin {to look like an Elephant’s Ear} and fried.  They are served warm and covered in either cinnamon sugar or raspberry jam - cinnamon sugar is always my first choice!  At the fair these treats can easily be shared among a few people but for today I’m serving up mini-Elephant Ears so you don’t have to share with anybody!  And so easy to make with only 4 ingredients! 

Easy Elephant Ears
  • 1 tube Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layer Original Biscuits
  • Cinnamon Sugar Mixture - I always keep a container in the cupboard so I don’t have an exact recipe – this really depends on you so mix a little sugar and cinnamon together until you like it) – you will need about a cup
  • Oil for frying
In a frying pan, pour oil about 1 ½ inch high and turn burner on medium.
Using the layers, split the biscuits in half so you have 16 thinner biscuits

Stretch each biscuit as thin as it will go without tearing and carefully place it into the hot oil.

Depending on how big your frying pan is you can put more than one biscuit in at a time but just avoid over crowding the pan.

When the biscuits are golden brown on the bottom, flip over and fry the other side (I used two forks to help flip the biscuit without splashing).

When the biscuits are done on each side, carefully place them on to a paper towel and blot the excess oil.

Cover both sides with cinnamon sugar and serve warm


There ya go an easy way to enjoy a sweet fair treat any time!


Since you are at home you can top your elephant ears with whatever you want so get creative!  Tell me what wacky creations would you make?
