Ingredients

Sandwiches:

8 slices white bread (or your choice of cinnamon swirl, raisin, apple, etc.)

1/4 to 1/2 cup peanut butter

4 to 6 teaspoons grape jelly (or your choice of jelly, jam, or preserves)

Batter:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup cornstarch

41/2 teaspoons baking powder

12 ounces carbonated energy drink (recommended: Red Bull) or seltzer water, for carbonation

1 quart canola oil (approximately, as needed for deep-frying)

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons sugar

Directions

  1. Lay out the slices of bread and spread approximately 1 tablespoon peanut butter on each of 4 slices and approximately 1 teaspoon jelly on each of the other 4 slices. Pair them together to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
  2. Heat canola oil in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F. Mix flour, cornstarch, and baking powder and add energy drink in a stream while whisking constantly. Dip sandwiches into the batter or ladle batter over them.
  3. Deep-fry until golden brown. Drain on paper toweling. Mix cinnamon and sugar in a bowl and sift onto fried sandwiches while they are still hot. Slice the donut sandwiches into diagonal quarters while still warm, and serve.
