This recipe was given to me by my grandmother. It is a great way to use up day old white bread and the other ingredients are most always on hand. My kids love them!

Directions

  1. In a bowl, stir together eggs, milk, vanilla, and sugar until well blended and sugar is dissolved. In a separate bowl, mix flour with baking powder and salt. Gradually stir flour mixture into egg mixture until no lumps remain. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Make sandwiches with the bread, spreading jam evenly in the center. Trim away crusts, and cut each sandwich into quarters, wiping away any excess jam. Dip each quarter into batter, coating completely.
  4. Working in batches to avoid overcrowding, fry sandwiches for 1 to 3 minutes, or until puffy and golden brown. Drain and cool on a paper towel-lined wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

OK...these were kinda amazing!! I was home alone this evening...craving donuts...but it was too late to make them. I stumbled upon this recipe and I must admit, I was skeptical when I read it. Then, after reading the first few reviews I decided to give it a try. wow!! am I glad I did! They are AWESOME! they really taste like donuts. I did stray from the recipe slightly, cooking mine between 325 & 350 as they seemed to be cooking too fast on the outside at 375. I then put some white sugar in a bag and gave them a shake when they were done. Of course I couldn't stop at one...I've already eaten 3 and poured a big glass of milk. If you follow the directions, you will not be disappointed with this recipe!

These were good, and they were pretty easy. I'm not sure why the recipe calls for cutting the bread into fourths. Each "doughnut" was so small and didn't provide much jelly. I'll try these again but I will, as a previous reviewer suggested, use a thicker bread, and I will leave them in bigger portions with a generous amount of jelly in the center. Thanks for the fun recipe!
