Jam Doughnuts

Jam Doughnuts are one of my absolute favourite comfort foods.

I remember going to the Moomba festival in Melbourne as a kid and this little mobile caravan stall made them hot and fresh with homemade raspberry jam – droooool…

Method

  1. In a large mixing bowl mix together the yeast, one tablespoon of the sugar and the warm water.
  2. Leave in a warm place for the yeast to activate and become foamy.
  3. Carefully add your milk and then the butter, sifted flour, egg and sugar and mix with a wooden spoon until a sticky dough forms.
  4. Knead lightly and place the dough in an oiled bowl in a warm place for 30 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.
  5. Remove the dough from the bowl and knead lightly until it becomes elastic (just a few minutes).
  6. Roll out the dough to just under 2cm thick and cut out rounds (5cm is perfect).
  7. Place the rounds on a lined baking tray in a warm place to rise again for approximately 3o minutes (make sure you space out the doughnuts on the tray).
  8. Heat the canola oil and cook the doughnuts two at a time until golden - turning half way.
  9. Drain on a paper towel.
  10. Using a piping set, insert the nozzle into the centre of the doughnut and squirt some jam into the middle.
  11. Dust with icing sugar and serve piping hot immediately!

Notes

Recipe Hints and Tips:
  • Jam Doughnuts are best eaten warm straight after cooking.
  • Finished doughnuts can be frozen, wrap individually in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for up to three weeks.  To serve, heat in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
