Easy jelly donut recipe is on the menu today, some people write it as “donut” while others write it as “doughnut” hence the title. I’ve seen some of my readers searching for a donut/doughnut recipe on the blog, here you have it! This is very easy to make and you’re going to love it, but you need to be careful when you want to fry the donut so you don’t deflate it.
You can fill your donuts with your favorite jelly, it doesn’t have to be the strawberry flavor I used. Below you have my easy jelly doughnut “donuts recipe. I’ll also link some other snack recipes you might want to try.
You might want to try;
- 5 Cups All-purpose flour plus more for dusting.
- 1.5 Cups Warm milk (110-115 degrees)
- 4.5 Teaspoons Yeast (2 packets)
- 1 Stick Butter (1/2 cup); melted
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 Cup Sugar (adjust to your preference) plus more for coating
- Strawberry jam or jelly of your choice
- Oil for frying
Proof yeast: In a small bowl, add milk, stir in yeast and sprinkle some sugar over it. Set aside until it's foamy.
In another bowl, add flour, sugar, salt, and stir.
Add the melted butter, egg, and mix. You can do this process with your standing mixer or hand.
Add the yeast mixture and combine until it is smooth. Sprinkle some flour if it's too sticky, I added about one tablespoon.
Grease a bowl, and add the dough. Cover and place in a warm place to rise (double in size).
After it has risen, place the dough on a floured surface and punch down. Divide the dough into two and work with one at a time.
Roll the dough to about 1/4''-1/2'' thickness.
Place parchment on baking sheets sprinkle flour over the baking sheet and set aside.
Dip a cutter into a flour (to avoid sticking) and cut out the dough.
Place the cut-out dough on the baking sheet leaving some space apart in between the doughs. Cover and let the dough rises (doubled) again.
Heat oil in a fryer or dutch, let the oil heat to about 350-375 degrees F. Fry the dough (don't overcrowd the oil) for about 2 minutes on each side.
Be careful when picking the dough up in other not to deflate.
Drain on the paper towel tray. Squeeze in some jelly into the donut (one at a time) you can use a piping tip and bag.
Coat the donut with sugar (as much as you want it), let it cool down and enjoy!
