Butter Fried Doughnut Skewers

As if eating yeasty, carbohydrate filled doughnuts weren’t bad enough on their own, you’d better sit down for this.

Butter Fried Doughnut Skewers.


When Jon and I first moved in together oh so many years ago, one night he pulled out a stick of butter and some day-old Krispy Kremes and set out to fry them.  And then top them with ice cream.  Heart attack on a plate, right?  May be, but they are some kind of delicious.  Just add a pat or two of butter to a fry pan over medium high heat and then fry the doughnuts on both sides until lightly browned. The outsides get all hot and crispy while the insides warm up and just ooze sweetness.

It really doesn’t get much better than that.


To jazz my version up a bit, I brought out the wooden skewers and alternated pieces of banana and strawberries with quarters of the doughnuts.  They would be perfect for a party tray, and really impress the kiddos. Seven couldn’t get enough of them!  For a little extra oh-my-god factor, coat the fruit in chocolate first.  Yumolicious.

Sure, it may be overkill, but look at it this way…  Doughnuts are expensive. Now you don’t have to eat those dried up leftovers as is.

You can thank me later.


Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. As if I could love a doughnut any more, and you go and fry them in butter! Holy cow.

  2. Yes please! Yummmmmyy!!

  3. Seriously, there is nothing better than a warm Krispy Kreme donut. At least the guilt of eating them (fried in butter!) is tempered by the fruit.

  4. Oh yah!! Love that they are on skewers….and bring on the buttah!

  5. Oh my gosh. What a great idea! Plus, I’m pretty sure that doughnuts become healthy when sandwiched between fruit. Right? :)

  6. Wow! LOVE this! :)

  7. Mom used to talk about a cafe in Bluefield that would have fried kk doughnuts with a scoop of ice cream. That and a coke would be lunch.

  8. Oh my goodness. I haven’t been to your site for a long time. A long time ago I was impressed – now, I’m REALLY IMPRESSED. Congratulations!!!

  9. Yesss! I’m so trying this next time I have day-old doughnuts.

  10. That really looks tasty! I would have never tried something like that, but now that I’ve seen it here I’m going to have to get my I-so-love-to-cook daughter to make it for me. :)

  11. Now I want doughnuts for dinner!

  12. Hey, heart attacks aside, thank you for a great idea to revive day-old doughnuts!! Seriously, nothing is sadder than a dried out doughnut.
