The first mistake was deep frying, the second was sugar dipping, but by the time we drizzled these gorgeous golden treats with the buttery, zesty curd we were powerless to exercise restraint.
A beautiful pile of these doughnuts are perfect for sharing with friends, after your dinner party has retreated to the comfort of the couches and a roaring fire. Helped along by one of Kurt’s delicious Espresso Martini’s (coming later this month) -the perfect finish to any midwinter feast!
Prepare the curd the day before (or at lease a few hours) in advance to allow it to cool and thicken. Mix the filling and fry the doughnuts as close to serving as possible.
