52 Breads in 2013 – #14 Doughnuts

lease join me in giving a warm Canadian welcome to “Life without Lemons”.  Originally hailing from the UK and now living in Canada, we are very excited to announce that, Elyse with her fabulous “52  Breads in 2013″ will be our weekly guest blogger.  If you are looking for some fabulous bread recipes, drop by each week and see what delicious bread Elyse has baked in her kitchen.

A life without lemons is like swimming in the nude. You can do it, but it just feels wrong.

A Life Without Lemons is my little blog about food, family and an ongoing love affair with gin and tonic.I am a wife, mother of two lovely (loud, messy, crazy) boys, trained butcher and passionate cook of all things tasty. I moved from rainy England to snowy Canada in 2011 and planned to make friends and influence people with food and gin.

In 2013 I have embarked on a baking mission to make 52 different breads. All of the recipes are from one book- Women’s Institute: Bread. I have no special tools or fancy equipment. Just me, my kitchen and a pre heated oven.

Why not come along for the ride and make some bread……….

#14 Doughnuts {RECIPE}

The recipe on my blog is not the exact recipe I made. I decided that rather than make a full batch of jam filled donuts I would also make some traditional donut shapes with a hole in the middle and a generous dusting of cinnamon sugar. The recipe I used filled the donuts with jam before the rise and then cooked them with the jam already inside.  Unfortunately the jam escaped from some and there were raw bits of dough close to the jammy inside when the outside was a perfect golden brown, so I decided that a recipe that cooked the donut first and then filled them with jam afterwards would be far more consistent.

So you are welcome to cook little donut balls and fill them with sticky jam afterwards as per the recipe on my blog, or use a circle cutter and then a smaller cutter to make a hole in the middle.  Dust the hole donuts with cinnamon and sugar mixed together and sprinkle
the jam donuts with icing sugar – delicious!


TASTE: I don’t think I need to tell you, but they tasted amazing! Soft
and light on the inside and crisp and sugary on the outside!
