    Serves: 20 

    • 3 eggs, beaten
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1 cup plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • canola oil
    • 10 slices white bread
    • strawberry (or any flavour) jam
    • icing sugar

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. In a bowl, stir together eggs, milk, vanilla and sugar until well blended and sugar is dissolved.
    2. In a separate bowl, mix flour with baking powder and salt. Gradually stir flour mixture into egg mixture until no lumps remain. Set aside.
    3. Heat oil in deep-fryer to190 degrees C.
    4. Make sandwiches with the bread, spreading jam evenly in the centre. Trim away crusts and cut each sandwich into quarters, wiping away any excess jam. Dip each quarter into batter, coating completely.
    5. Working in batches to avoid overcrowding, fry sandwiches for 1 to 3 minutes, or until puffy and golden brown. Drain and cool on a paper towel-lined wire rack.
    6. Sift over icing sugar. Serve warm.

    OK...these were kinda amazing!! I was home alone this evening...craving donuts...but it was too late to make them. I stumbled upon this recipe and I must admit, I was skeptical when I read it. Then, after reading the first few reviews I decided to give it a try. wow!! am I glad I did! They are AWESOME! they really taste like donuts. I did stray from the recipe slightly, cooking mine between 325 & 350 as they seemed to be cooking too fast on the outside at 375. I then put some white sugar in a bag and gave them a shake when they were done. Of course I couldn't stop at one...I've already eaten 3 and poured a big glass of milk. If you follow the directions, you will not be disappointed with this recipe!  -  12 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Easy Easy Easy! Such a fun take on doughnuts. Its like an awesome piece of french toast wrapped around strawbery jelly! My 3 and 5 year old loved them!  -  27 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were good, and they were pretty easy. I'm not sure why the recipe calls for cutting the bread into fourths. Each "doughnut" was so small and didn't provide much jelly. I'll try these again but I will, as a previous reviewer suggested, use a thicker bread, and I will leave them in bigger portions with a generous amount of jelly in the center. Thanks for the fun recipe!  -  19 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
