Give the classic jammy doughnut an American style twist with this recipe. Warm, soft baked doughnuts filled with peanut butter and raspberry jam, these are incredibly moreish. You could also try experimenting with fillings such as vanilla custard or chocolate ganache.

Method

  1. Bring the milk to the boil, then remove from the heat and add the  diced butter. Leave to cool until it reaches hand temperature. Mix the flour, yeast, 75g sugar and salt in a big bowl. Mix the milk and the beaten egg into the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon.

  2. Tip onto a lightly flour dusted surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer).

  3. Lightly grease the mixing bowl with some oil. Put the dough back in, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size – up to 2 hours depending on how warm your kitchen is.

  4. Knock back the dough by gently kneading just 5 times to get the air out. Cut the dough into 25 even pieces (use a weighing scales if you like). Roll each piece into a ball and sit on 2-3 lightly greased baking sheets – they’ll need room between them for growing.

  5. Cover the dough again with a clean tea towel and leave to prove until almost doubled in size again. Preheat your oven to 190°C (170°C fan, gas mark 5), with a roasting tin full of boiling water on the base of your oven.

  6. Bake the doughnuts for 12-15 minutes until risen and dark golden. Let the doughnuts cool for a few minutes, then brush with the melted butter and roll in sugar. Spoon a little raspberry jam into the piping bag and the peanut butter in to another piping bag. Poke a hole in each doughnut, then push in the nozzle and squeeze in a little jam, but do not fill the doughnut completely. Repeat this process with peanut butter until the doughnut is completely filled. Best served warm.

  7. For alternative fillings why not try lemon curd or even a smooth velvety chocolate ganache. For the ganache; melt together 100g of double cream and 100g dark chocolate until thick and glossy. Fill into a piping bag and insert into the doughnuts.
