Buttery, crumbly and melt in the mouth. The nearest English equivalent to the Jersey Wonder would be the doughnut, although Wonders are never coated in sugar, nor filled with jam. This recipe makes around 40 wonders
1 ½ Ib self-raising flour
4 oz butter
8 oz caster sugar
Sieve flour and sugar and rub in butter, chopped into small pieces. Add whisked eggs to make a light dough.
With floured hands make the dough into golf ball sized shapes. Place these on a lightly floured tray and cover with a damp cloth for two hours.
Then roll out each of the balls into oblongs two inches by four inches. With a sharp knife slit the centre of each oblong and twist the top end (of the oblong) through the slit.
Drop four to six Wonders at a time into a large pan of hot oil, cook for 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper.
