I had to wait for breakfast this morning as I was missing an essential part of my doughnuts….. the bread!
It was so worth the wait though as these are delicious! They’re definitely a healthier version of a doughnut but also a nicer way of doing French Toast! They’re also really simple to make.
Of course, mine are now made gluten free using gluten free bread. I found the best non-gluten free bread is the Crustless one by Kingsmill. This also removes the first step for you!
I have made chocolate Doughnuts but you can also do this with jam. They come out just as tasty!
Ingredients (Serves 1)
- 2 slices of bread from a 400g loaf
- 2 tsp of chocolate spread or jam
- 1 whisked egg
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Sprinkle of sweetener
Cut the crusts off the bread then take a rolling pin and roll them as flat as you can without tearing them.
Spread your chocolate spread (or jam) evenly over the flattened bread then roll them up. Cut each one in half.
Whisk the egg with a pinch of cinnamon and dip your bread rolls in before placing them in a hot frying pan coated with spray oil.
Keep turning the rolls to make sure they are cooked all over. Once browned and on the crisper side, serve with some fruit (if you fancy) and sprinkle with sweetener.
I cut mine up again again once cooked to make little bite size pieces.
