Baked: Doffins with Raspberry Jam


It's been a while since I've baked, mostly because it's winter and Callum's conservatory-style kitchen is freezing and no delicious treats are worth the red nose and blue hands. But since the weather is strangely mild, we braved the kitchen and made some doffins! They're a mix between doughnuts and muffins and they are amazing. I took one bite, looked at Callum and said 'these are the best things we've ever baked.'
You can find the recipe on the asda website here. It's a really simple recipe, you can't really go wrong. It's pretty quick too so it's perfect from whipping up a last minute treat. It says to bake for 25 minutes but ours came out looking a little bit dark so you might just want to check yours at the 20 minute mark. Dipping the doffins in the butter was the bit I hated. It was so messy! You're supposed to brush the butter on but we were lacking in tools so we pretty much just dropped it in the bowl of butter and then rolled it in the icing. The good thing about it is it doesn't have to be perfect!
Next time I think we're going to try a bit of cinnamon mixed in with the granulated sugar. I love cinnamon. We've done this with doughnuts in the past and they turned out really well. Believe me, it won't be long until we're making more of these!
