I have to warn you, these twisted donuts are dangerous! They’re yeast risen but they take hardly any time at all to make, you only need one 15 minute rise – something this delicious just shouldn’t be so easy to make, it’s not good for my waistline! These amazing fried treats were introduced to me by my good friend, Jhuls, who blogs over at The Not So Creative Cook. Don’t let the name fool you, she’s very creative and has some incredible recipes, make sure you check them out. When I saw her Shakoy recipe it went straight to the top of my “MUST make” list. This is Jhuls’ recipe that I have adapted, and I use the word “adapt” very loosely, the only real difference I made is I stuffed them with Nutella – because it’s been too long since I made anything with Nutella!

They always say that you should go grocery shopping with a list and stick to it (only deviating for a better deal on something you need), and for budget purposes that’s definitely a good idea! I don’t know who “they” are, but they’d probably be very disappointed with my shopping habits! I definitely go with a list in mind, but I usually get distracted by offers and random products, I usually end up coming home with a lot of things I never planned to buy. And while that may not be too kind of my bank balance, it does usually end up producing yummy recipes! This rice pudding is one of those times – I was shopping in Aldi and saw pudding rice and thought to myself “hmm I should make rice pudding soon” so I put a bag in my trolley! That pudding rice proceeded to sit in my cupboard for months, unopened – until it eventually met it’s destiny in the form of this delicious Spicy Mango Layered Rice Pudding!

There are a few things that Britain takes pride in, usually they are things most people might find odd – like our ability to queue for anything and everything, we take queuing etiquette very seriously. One thing we rightfully take pride in is our biscuits – nothing beats a British biscuit! From the tough cookie HobNob to the beloved Custard Cream, and everything in between – we love our biscuits! Of course, these are not to be confused with what American’s call biscuits, when a Brit says “biscuit” we mean a cookie. I’ve picked up many Americanisms over the last few years, having an American best friend will do that to a person,  and I’ll refer to lots of things as “cookies” – but the British classics? They will always be biscuits – a custard cream, a jammie dodger, a chocolate bourbon, a rich tea – always biscuits!
