With my thesis submission date looming combined with holiday planning - I've hardly had the time to cook or bake, let alone update my lovely blogspace.
I stumbled upon this recipe whilst browsing lazily in Waterstones one afternoon and its been stuck in my head since. Jam doughnuts disguised as a cupcake? How very intriguing.
I had a friend over for Saturday lunch and this was the perfect opportunity to try this recipe. It was a breeze to put together as its one of those, one bowl type of recipes. Just bung everything into a bowl, mix and voila - perfect cupcake batter!
This resulted in a fabulously soft, moist, delicious doughnut-like texture filled with a huge dollop of strawberry jam. The sugar coating just added a touch of brilliance to this perfect piece of cake. It really felt as though you were eating a freshly baked doughnut in the form of a cupcake!
If you don't like jam, I'm sure you could easily substitute it for melted chocolate, peanut butter or perhaps lemon curd. Oh the possibilities are endless!
