Day 346: Jam Doughnuts
Jam-filled doughnuts are the perfect way to start your day. They're a great baking project and taste amazing!
Making doughnuts are not hard! All you have to do is make and proof your dough, cut out little doughnut circles, fry, and decorate them!
If you're not a fan of jam, you can fill these doughnuts any way you want! I love custard and even whipped cream!
In fact, you don't even have to fill your doughnuts. Simply cut an inner ring inside one doughnut circle and dip them in a glaze once fried.
You can also make doughnut holes. Instead of cutting out doughnut circles, just roll them into small, bite-size balls.
|Level:👩🏽🍳👩🏽🍳|Time: 3 hours, 45 minutes|Serves: 8|
1/2 cup milk, warmed slightly
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 3/4 teaspoons instant yeast
2 cups all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup granulated sugar
Oil, for frying
Jam, for filling
In the bowl of your stand mixer, mix the milk, sugar, and yeast. Then, let it sit until the mixture foams up a bit. Add the melted butter, egg, and flour into the yeast mixture and mix until the dough pulls away from the bowl. Cover with a towel and proof for one hour in your fridge. Take out of the fridge once your timer is done and proof for another hour on your counter.
Roll your doughnut dough into a 1/2-inch thick circle. With a 3-inch cookie cutter, cut circles. Place all the doughnut circles on a plate and cover with a towel. Proof for 45 minutes - 1 hour until doubled in size.
In a large pot, heat your oil to 365 degrees F. Add in your doughnut gently and cook for about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. It should be dark brown. Brush on some extra melted butter and dip into the extra granulated sugar. Add jam to a piping bag and snip off the end. Fill your doughnuts with jam and serve!
