A sweet version of eggy bread. This seems to work best with the cheapest white bread and the cheapest jam (jelly) you can buy. They aren't actually as complicated to make as my instructions probably make out! I think you can only make these over an open fire. Holding them over the hob just isn't going to be the same at all.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 slices bread
  • 8 teaspoons jam


  1. (It's probably best to make these one at a time).
  2. Cut bread into square quarters.
  3. Place about 3/4 tsp of jam in the centre of the quarter of bread and fold bread over.
  4. Seal the bread shut with a little beaten egg and coat the outside with a little egg as well.
  5. Make sure the bread stays folded over by poking a skewer through the top corner.
  6. Using the skewer, hold the doughnut over the embers of the fire until the egg is cooked and (hopefully) the bread stays stuck together.
  7. Eat - remembering that it's full of hot jam :-).
  8. Make as many as you have ingredients for.

I tried this while in desperate measures. Wow...I was really surprised! It was a quick treat. I made it on the stove and fried them in butter. I also added some vanilla extract to the egg-wash. It was a mix of french toast and dessert. I sprinkled them with cinnomon & suger before eating.Good,Quick,& Cheap!
