Bacon & Marmalade Doughnuts

It was my little sister’s 18th birthday weekend past and I wanted to come up with something different for the treats!

 

Although they sound very weird, and a little wrong – A-MA-ZIIIIING! 🙂

I N G R E D I E N T S

For the doughnuts:

  • 500g (1lb) self-raising flour
  • 1 level tsp baking powder
  • 90g (3oz) caster sugar
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2tbsp sunflower oil
  • 200ml (7fl oz) Whole milk

Topping:

  • Marmalade
  • Streaky Bacon, roughly chopped

M E T H O D

For the Doughnuts:

  1. Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer to 170ºC (335F). Meanwhile, sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and stir in the sugar.
  2. Beat the eggs and oil into the milk.
  3. Add to the dry ingredients, mixing with a spoon to bind them together.
  4. Work the ingredients together into a smooth ball and then turn out on to a floured work surface.
  5. Roll the dough out to a thickness of just over 1cm (1/2in).
  6. Flour the cutters and use the larger one to cut out rounds of dough, then cut out the centres using the smaller cutter.
  7. Re-roll the trimmings to make more doughnuts <3<3<3
  8. Now cook the doughnut rings 2 or 3 at a time.
  9. Place the rings carefully into the hot oil and cook for 3-4 mins, until golden on the bottom, then turn them over and cook for a further 2-3 mins, until they are  an even golden colour and cooked through.
  10. Lift on to kitchen paper to drain briefly. Shake off any excess.

For the topping:

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the marmalade for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Stir in half the bacon, and continue to heat for 1 minute.
  3. Allow the mixture to cool slightly, before covering each doughnut using a silicon brush.
  4. Top with additional bacon.

Enjoy!

Love
