Jam doughnuts

About our jam doughnuts recipe

We bring you the ultimate family favourite: a jam doughnut. Of course, if you are not a jam doughnut lover, you can fill them with chocolate spread instead! Our method walks you through making the dough and filling with shop bought jam.

But if you're feeling super adventurous and have the time, we have a Strawberry Jam recipe which is ready in under half an hour. Our jam doughnuts are made in the traditional way by deep frying.

  1. Step 1:

    Place all the dough into a large bowl, mix and then knead for 10 minutes (or knead for 5 minutes in a machine with a dough hook attached).

  2. Step 2:

    Cut the dough into 8 and shape into balls. Leave to prove until double in size on a greased tray.

  3. Step 3:

    Heat the oil in a pan to a medium heat (140°C) and deep fry the donuts until golden brown, drain and toss in sugar.

  4. Step 4:

    When cool, place the jam in a piping bag. Make a small hole in the side of each doughnut, fill with jam then coat in caster sugar and serve.
