  • 8-10 teaspoons mincemeat
  • 8 slices of thick sliced white bread (crusts removed)
  • A little spreading butter
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 100g self raising flour (sifted)
  • 150ml ale
  • Vegetable oil for deep fat frying


1 Spread one side of bread with a fine layer of butter. Spoon one teaspoon mincemeat into the centre of the buttered bread.

2 Take a second buttered slice, press and seal the two slices together. Cut the bread with a star or round cutter and chill for 30 minutes.

3 Make the batter by mixing the sugar and flour together. Whisk in the ale until the batter becomes thick.

4 Heat the vegetable oil (5 cm deep) to 180°C (350°F).

5 Dip the chilled bread shapes into the batter and fry until golden brown on both sides.

6 Once cooked, drain the doughnuts on crumpled kitchen roll. Dust with sugar before serving.
