Mini Jelly Donuts

Standard

Jelly Donuts…. Who does not love jelly donuts. Well I have good news for you about this recipe. They are not your normal jelly donut. Why you might ask? Because they are baked and not deep-fried. So this means they are just a wee bit healthier for you. I like that!

I used a raspberry jam for the filling but you can really use any type of jam. Strawberry, blackberry, blueberry, anything.

Some equipment/ utensils you will need for this recipe would be a mini cupcake pan and a small round pastry tip. If you do not have a pastry bag, no worries. You can use a Ziploc bag and attach your pastry tip to it. I normally use disposable pastry bags you can get at Wal-mart for a few bucks. I love them. Super easy clean up.

Ingredients: (24 mini donuts)

1 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 Cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 Cup vegetable oil
1 tsp Vanilla extract
3/4 Cup buttermilk

4 T butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar, for rolling
2/3 cup red jam

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease mini cupcake pan with cooking spray.

In a mixing bowl cream sugar and egg until smooth and light yellow.

Add in oil and vanilla.

In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add half of dry ingredients to mixer and then half of the buttermilk. Once combined add the rest of the dry ingredients and buttermilk. Mix together on medium speed until smooth.

Fill each cup almost to the rim. Make sure each cup has the same amount so they all cook evenly.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

While warm dip in butter and roll in sugar. Let cool. Once they are cool, insert round piping tip into the sides of the donuts. Gently squeeze jam into them. You will notice that they start to poof up and out a bit. Do not over stuff them to where they are exploding.

About kristinegough86

I have the passion to bake and love trying new recipes! I work at a school for children with disabilities as a manager of a cafe. This cafe allows the students learn the ability to work with the public and in the near future I am going to be able to bake with the students and let them learn about the love and passion there is to baking. :) I prefer baking over cooking although I do love to cook as well. I hardly ever repeat a recipe. I love my family, dogs, friends, and job. One day I will have my own bakery and I can not wait. Until then I am going to continue baking my little heart out.
