What can I say about this recipe? Nigella's Doughnut French Toast is a very naughty, very scrumptious little treat. It's the this type of gloriously comforting and lavishly sweet snack, that Nigella is known for and it really tastes like a warm sugary doughnut.
This recipe is really simple and great served with a big mug of hot chocolate, or you could warm a little strawberry jam and drizzle over your tower of french toast.
