Jam Fan Tans

This recipe is fantastic they taste like very yummy and moreish jam donuts but are baked and not fried. Best eaten straight from the oven! This recipe belongs to Marg & Maree's Bread Making and uses their Soft Bun Mix and their Jam filling, you can by these on line directly from them.

Ingredients

600gm Soft Bun Mix
2 tsp Dry yeast
2 Tbsp of Vanilla Sugar (just stick a vanilla bean in some caster sugar for a few days and you have Vanilla Sugar and you can just leave it there are keep topping it up!)
300ml warm water
30gm melted butter
Raspberry filling (or jam)
Extra Vanilla sugar

Method
  • Place water and melted butter in the machine then flour, sugar and lastly yeast
  • Set it on your dough cycle
  • Tip dough from pan when finished onto lightly floured surface and roll into a rectangle 30cm x 40cm
  • Cut the dough into eight even strips and brush 6 strips with raspberry filling.
  • Cut each strip into 6 even pieces (you should have 48 pieces of dough)
  • Each fan tan is made from 4 pieces of dough 3 x raspberry filling and a plain one on top
  • Then turn your stack on it's side and place in a greased muffin tin. Continue til you have 12 in the tin
  • Set in a warm place to double in size
  • Bake 180 degrees for 20 -25 mins
  • Cool slightly so you don't burn your tongue on the jam and sprinkle with Vanilla sugar

Now watch them disappear in minutes! Be careful they are addictive so buy the 1kg soft bun mix!
