Doughnut French Toast

My weaknesses are mainly savoury - think salt and vinegar crisps/potato chips or cheese and biscuits/crackers - but there are times when[ only a doughnut will do. This can get desperate late at night when the shops are shut, and even if they weren't, none of them sell the kind of doughnuts I dream of. This is my way of assuaging my appetite, appeasing my need or, perhaps more accurately, feeding my addiction. Hot chocolate on the side is always worth considering, but just - just! - by itself this is sublime succour.]
