Easy Bush Donuts

Are you planning a camping trip and looking for a unique and sweet treat that goes beyond the usual cake or damper? Look no further than these easy-to-cook bush donuts, made by simply transforming jam sandwiches into a delectable delight.

To make these mouthwatering treats, you’ll need 6 slices of bread (crusts removed), your choice of jam for filling, oil for shallow frying, and some pancake batter (either homemade or from a shaker pancake mix).

While we’re using jam today, don’t hesitate to experiment with other fillings like Nutella or bananas to cater to your preferences.

Before you embark on the journey of making your bush donuts, it’s essential to get your heat source ready. Today, I’m utilizing a camp oven on my Ozpig to ensure the perfect cooking environment.

Ozpig Cooker

  • The Ozpig is a versatile cooking and heating device that is ideal for camping. It offers a wide range of functionalities, making it a fantastic all-round companion for outdoor adventures.

Now, let’s dive into the donut-making process. Start by cutting off all the crusts from your bread slices. Then, in a separate bowl, combine the egg and sugar, followed by gradually adding flour and milk to create a smooth and luscious batter.

The next step is incredibly simple—just create jam sandwich triangles, without the need for butter.

Now comes the slightly messy part. Dip the sandwich triangles into the batter and carefully place them into the hot oil. Exercise caution while doing so.

Now, it’s time to play the waiting game. Allow the donuts to cook until they turn a delicious golden brown on both sides. Once they are perfectly cooked, use a spoon or tongs to carefully remove them from the hot oil and let them drain on a sheet of paper towel.

Wait for them to cool for a few mins and then coat in cinnamon sugar.

And eat them while they are still warm…yum!
