I cannot claim the glory for these donuts – they are a family recipe from a friend of mine. But we have made them many a time at the cottage. They are, in fact, PERFECT cottage food – and we TRY not to make them at home due to their serious sugar and fat content – but sometimes, we cannot resist!
1 jar raspberry jam (we have tried other flavours, but raspberry is, by far, the BEST!)
1 loaf white bread
Box of pancake mix (we have also made our own pancake mix, from scratch, which works equally well) – prepared as directed.
Vegetable oil for frying
Icing sugar for dusting
Make a jam sandwich & cut it into quarters.
Dip each quarter into pancake batter and fry in oil until golden (flipping once.)
Cool 15 mins on wire rack & dust with LOTS of icing sugar.
Make coffee and/or tea … and yumm!
