Gin and jam – not the most likely duo but some of the best food combinations are the most unlikely ones (chocolate in your chilli anyone?).
If you’re a regular reader of our blog, you’ll know that we like to share some deliciously intriguing gin and food pairings from time to time and recipes that are maybe a bit different to the norm (using Caorunn of course), and since it’s National Doughnut Day, we’ve created a recipe that will hit the sweet spot of any sugar (and gin) fan! Recently, we’ve had the rise of the Cronut (a cross between a croissant and a donut) and ‘The Crone’ (A baked croissant dough ice cream cone) thanks to London based Donuttery, Dum Dum.
We’ve been perfecting this recipe for a while (and may have snuck a few tastes) and we think that this Caorunn gin infused creation will inject delight into your National Doughnut Day.
Caorunn Doughnut Recipe
7g fast-action dried yeast
275g strong white bread flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp mixed spice
125g caster sugar
50g unsalted butter
1 medium egg
Sunflower oil, to grease and fry
For the jam
2 x 370 g bags frozen mixed berries
200g light brown soft sugar
However, if you’re more ‘cocktail shaker’ than ‘baker’, you can indulge your sweet tooth with these deliciously sweet inventions. Prepare for a sweet sensation!
Inspired by Scotland’s alternative to trifle with a classic flavour combination of apple and raspberry.
Practically a pudding in a glass!
A match made in heaven!
So go grab your apron (or your mixers and shakers), in fact, you might do both! However you choose to celebrate National Doughnut Day, we hope we’ve given you some food (and cocktails!) for thought.
Where to enjoy
A Truly Scottish Gin
