There is something wonderfully comforting and traditional about a soft and fluffy sweet jam doughnut. It is a delightful dessert or in-between treat, loved by grown-ups and children alike, and that conjures heart-warming images of barefooted children, on hot summer days, tucking into the soft and sticky honey-glow jam-filled oozing cake, and of cold but cosy wintery afternoons enjoying it with a warm cup of tea. Our Jam Doughnut recipe has no airs and graces, but when dressed up, even with just a light dusting of sugar, holds its own amongst the most lavish of treats on the dessert table.
Admittedly our Breakfast Crumpets recipe is a tiny bit of a cheat. Yes, it has all the goodness of cranberry health mix but it’s the drizzle of chocolate that will perk your morning right up.
