About this recipe: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!
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons sugar
125g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 slices white bread
strawberry (or any flavour) jam

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.
Heat oil in deep-fryer to 190 C / Gas 5.
Make sandwiches with the bread, spreading jam evenly in the centre. Trim away crusts, and cut each sandwich into quarters, wiping away any excess jam. Dip each quarter into batter, coating completely.
Working in batches to avoid overcrowding, fry sandwiches for 1 to 3 minutes, or until puffy and golden brown. Drain and cool on a kitchen roll-lined wire rack. Sprinkle with icing sugar. Serve warm.
Tried this recipe out today. Mine didn't look as good as the picture but still very tasty! Will definitely use again.
I think I needed to keep them in the oil a little bit longer as they came out a little soggy but I was worried about burning them but I know for next time!
All in all, fab recipe, thank you! - 15 May 2014
