I love these doughnuts so much. They’re filled with jam from Sheridans, but you can use your favourite variety or even make your own if you prefer. I don’t have a deep fryer, so I made these using a pot filled with oil, which can be a bit tricky, so just make sure to be careful while you’re cooking them. Alternatively, making these doughnuts is a great excuse to buy a fryer if you’d like.
