Doughnut Bread with Strawberry Jam
Sometimes you just whant a soft and greasy doughnut with a tall glass of cold milk. Why not make one at home that tastes just as good or even better and takes no time at all to make. I saw Nigella make this once on her show........(who else would think of something like this) and I just could not resist trying this right away. I kid you not, it tastes just like a fresh baked doughnut with jelly in the middle. It is best to make this with some 24 hour old bread so it will soak the milk better, if the bread is too fresh, it will just brake into bits. I can´t say that I would make this every day, or even not once a month but once in a while as I said earlier, you just whant a doughnut!!
4 thick slices white bread, cut in halves
2 tbsp full fat milk
2 tbsp vanilla extract
caster sugar to roll the bread in
4 tbsp icing sugar
squeeze of lemon juice
Whisk the egg, milk and vanilla together. Drench the white bread in the egg mixture and fry on a hot pan in some butter. Roll in sugar when done.
To make the strawberry jam, put the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a blender and pulse until jammy.
