  1. Sift the flour and salt together in a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and yeast. Make a well in the middle and add the beaten egg. Mix together the milk and water to give a warm liquid, then pour into the well. Mix to a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead the dough until smooth and elastic – about 6-8 minutes. Divide into 20 equal pieces and shape into rounds. Spray baking sheets with low fat cooking spray. Arrange the doughnuts on them, well-spaced apart to allow for rising. Cover with cling film or clean, damp tea towels until almost doubled in size. This will take about 40 minutes. Preheat the oven to 220°C / fan oven 200°C / Gas Mark 7. Bake for 12-15 minutes until risen and golden. Cool. Make a small incision into each doughnut and fill with 1 tsp of jam. Brush each doughnut with water and roll in caster sugar and cinnamon (if using).
