Jelly Doughnuts (Donuts?)

November 6, 2009

If you haven’t made homemade donuts you’re seriously missing out!  I decided to use my basic donut recipe and try to create Jelly Donuts and they turned out awesome! 


  • 4 1/2 tsp quick rise yeast.
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg well beaten
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • freshly grated nutmeg (about 1/4 tsp)
  • 1/3 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups flour
  • Canola oil for frying

Mix yeast, water and sugar.

Let it hang out together for a few minutes until bubbles start to form.

Add the beaten egg, butter, vanilla, flour, cinnamon and salt.

Mix it together to form a sticky dough and knead for 1 minute.

Roll out on a floured surface to about 1/2″ thick.  Cut into donuts.

Cut round circles out of the dough and rise for 30 minutes.  Fry in hot oil for about 30 seconds/side, then drain on a wire racka nd let cool.

  The filling is ginger peach Jam (thinned down with some of the un set ginger peach jam) I slit a hole into the side of the donuts with a sharp knife and then  filled a piping bag with Jam and using a fairly large tip filled the centre of the donut.  I then put the donuts 3 at a time in a large resealable bag with 1/4 cup of sugar and shook them gently until they were covered.
