But I found out I can cope with soggy doughnuts. And how did I discover this amazing piece of information about myself? I found this recipe, which replaces bread and butter with doughnuts and jam. Excellent idea!! That Lorraine is a genius!! But, you ask, is it good?? Ummm, hell yeah!
And dead easy, too. You get yourself a dozen cinnamon doughnuts, slice them across, slather them with jam, slap them back together sandwich style and pop them in a greased casserole dish.
Then make up a custard, pour it over your doughnuts and bake it in a moderate oven for about an hour.
Dust it with icing sugar while still warm, and serve it up with ice cream. Do try your best not to have a coronary at the dinner table.
The sugar on the doughnuts caramelises and goes all chewy. I know mine sort of looks over-baked in places, but those were the best bits! Trust me!
*Just a quick edit to say it is awesome cold, too. Just so you know.
