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

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.

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.

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.
