Jalapeno cheese

Jalapeno cheese Donut, served with honey and crispy bacon is my contribution to National Donut Day that is celebrated in The States every year on 5 June.

Yes, yes, I know we are not in The States, but hey any excuse is good enough to have donuts, at least for me! I am not a big sweet tooth, especially with donuts. Not sure what it is about the donut that does not agree with me, but the sweet, deep-fried dough brings on a heartburn of epic proportions. Most probably the carbs and the sugar, I get it!

Jalapeno cheese

Jalapeno and Cheese is a killer combination, on pizza by far my favorite topping and any sandwich can only be better with the addition of jalapeno and cheese. So think……. jalapeno cheese donuts, drenched in honey and topped with crispy fried bacon. How can anybody practice any will power? It is the easiest thing to make and funky take on the traditional sweet, chocolate dipped donut. You can, if you must try these baked donuts, because they are not deep-fried and slightly healthier, but hey, once a year it is ok to yield to temptation.

You don’t even have to knead your own dough, just pop in at your nearest bakery and ask for 1 kg bread dough. So, let’s bake shall we?

Jalapeno cheese

On a floured surface, flatten the dough and place the chopped jalapenos on the dough. fold the dough over and start kneading the cheese and chillies into the dough.

Heat the oil in a deep pan and fry the donuts until golden in color.  Serve with lots of honey or maple syrup and the crispy bacon. These Jalapeno Cheese Donuts are Perfect for a lazy Saturday brunch so order your dough for tomorrow morning.

    Die dounuts lyk heerlik maar ek het nou onlangs by n markie Jalapeno Poppers raak geloop en heeltemal my hart verloor. Kan jy nie vir ons die resep laat kry nie?
