Next time you have leftover or day old white bread, try this recipe which is just like jam doughnuts. Bread is dipped in egg batter and fried.
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)
