Baked Jam Filled Donuts

Baked, not fried? You bet! If you have some extra time in hand make these donuts for your family. They are super easy as this donut’s dough requires neither kneading nor frying but it still turns out really light and spongy. All you have to do is filled it up with your favorite jam or custard and dust it with some confectioner sugar.



Ingredients:

¼ cup lukewarm water
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp dry yeast
2 ½ cups flour
½ tsp salt
¼ cup sugar
3 tbsp melted butter
1 egg
¾ cup lukewarm milk

• 2 tbsp melted butter – for brushing
• Some jam or custard for filling and sugar for dusting

1. In a small bowl, mix the yeast, 1 tsp sugar and 1/4 cup lukewarm water. Set it aside until foamy.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt and 1/4 cup sugar. Pour in the yeast mixture, melted butter, egg and the milk, use a mixing spoon and keep stirring until everything well-combines, for about 5 minutes. (The dough will be super sticky, pretty similar to cake batter)
3. Cover the bowl and let the dough proof until double its size. Prepare and line a baking pan with parchment paper.
4. Since the dough is super-sticky, make sure the work table is well-floured, pour the dough on the table; it would spread out by itself since it's very soft and lumpy. Do not knead or pat it too hard (as it will deflate the air bubbles and your donuts won't be that airy).
5. Pat the dough lightly to about 2 cm. Dip the round cookie cutter with flour first and cut the dough, use a spatula to help you transferring the round dough onto a large baking tray. Cover the dough and let it rest for 20 minutes.
6. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degree F. Brush the donuts with some melted butter and baked the donuts until lightly brown. It will take about 12 minutes (depend on your oven). Cool the donuts on a rack.
7. Prepare a pipping bag fitted with a long round cake decorating tip (I used Wilton No 402-23o round tip). Fill it up with your favorite jam or custard and pipe it into the donuts. Lightly dust it with some powder sugar before serving.

This looks good and oozing with jam. I've tried baked donuts before and they are really not too bad. Not as fluffy as the fried ones but then again they are so, so much healthier.

These baked donuts look scrumptious with that oozing out jam and dusting icing sugar. Refreshing. Perfect.

Sarah said...

Yummilicious donuts and such beautiful presentation. I'd love to sink my teeth into them.

wendyywy @ Table for 2 or more..... said...

The next time I get durians, I'm going to stuff them into these doughnuts!!!

Quinn said...

They look so beautifully presented...just like Christmas in July here in Australia! I love the idea of them being baked instead but on the contrast, fried donuts are a lot more lighter and fluffier. I once had donuts fried in solid fat (like lots of Crisco shortening!!!!) and they tasted awesome, not greasy at all!!!

Blessed Homemaker said...

Great! Another recipe in cups! I'm going to try baking this!

Jess @ Bakericious said...

Kitchen Corner said...

WOoohhh! I like your donuts! It's cute and lovely! I ate "mister donut" before, there is also a version quite similar to these you've made. I'm so curious how to pipe the jam into the donut? I think this is a healthier donut recipe which is not made from deep fry. I love this! Thanks!

Honey Bee Sweets said...

Yes, I have been searching for baked doughnut version for a long time, and yours look great! Thanks for this lovely recipe. :)

Wow! These look so yummy! Have you ever tried the recipe with starter instead? Was just wondering since I have some discarded starter around.
Happy baking!

MichelleK said...

Hi there,
I've been following your blog religiously daily to see what new food awaits me... love what you are doing. Thank you! As a fellow Malaysian neighbor (in MD), I love your Asian recipes - have tried some and they are wonderful. I'll have to try your baked popiah some day. Next week, we'll have the real thing in Penang... :-)

ajcabuang04 said...

noobcook said...

your donuts look really pretty with the jam filling and icing sugar :)

Shirley @ Kokken69 said...

Your donuts look really pretty! I have never made donuts before and am not a big fan of donuts. But recently, I have become quite fascinated by a chewy donut I ate from Mister Donut, a donut chain store from Japan. However, I am still not able to find a recipe for it...

Hi,

I am very keen to try this. May I know what flour did you use for the donut, the work table and the cutter?

Did you use bread flour or plain flour? Please advise.

Thanks.

Lynn

Anncoo said...

This looks so yummy! Want to open shop for donuts ;DD

ICook4Fun said...

Jo, thank you. The fried ones definitely taste better but this is the healthy version :)

Angie, thanks

Sarah, thanks you.

Wendy, great idea!! Too bad the durian here is not good and way too expensive :)

Quinn, thank you. The fried ones definitely taste so much better. Who doesn't like fried food, right :)

Blessed Homemaker, hope you like this.

Jess, try this our one. I am sure you are going to like it.

Kristy, thank you. Hope you will make this donuts for your kids.

Kitchen Corner, thank you. I already add in the way to do it in point no 7.

Bee Bee, do try this out as this give a very soft and spongy donuts. It will harden the next day but you can soften it up in the microwave and it is still as good.

ICook4Fun said...

Kaimono, Zurin & busygran, thank you.

Dawn & Elizabeth, thank you.

Anon, no I don't think I come across a recipe of donuts that uses starter. Maybe you can give me the link of recipe so I can check it out.

MC, do try this out as I am sure you cute daughter is going to like it.

MichelleK, thanks for your support. Have a wonderful trip home and enjoy all the yummy food :)

AJ, thanks.

Noobcook, thanks.

Shirley, I too prefer the chewy yeasty donuts thank the cakey ones.

Lynn, if the recipes in this blog said flour that means I used all purpose flour. If I used other type of flour I will indicate it in the recipe. Work table means the space you use to work the dough i.e kithchen couter or table. The cutter I used is just the regular round 2" dia cutter.

ICook4Fun said...

Anncoo, thanks you. Open a shop? I don't think I can compete with dunkin donuts or Krispy creme :) :)

ReeseKitchen said...

I'm making these donuts from your recipe next week! It does look easy, hopefully I get it right..haha! I'm always clumsy no matter how easy the recipe is..;p Thanks Gert..;)

Jane Ko said...

I love donuts. I know how to make fried ones but I've never tried baked. They look very yummy though, will try in the near future!

I just tried this donut recipe yesterday and had them for breakfast today.
It's very soft and fluffy! The only mistake I made was I only piped half of the donut, so the other half was "ko song". LOL.. nevertheless they were good to eat, esp when warm.
Thanks for this wonderful recipe dear!

WOOWWW... these are soo cool. I just baked them and had one just then, they are not like the ones u can buy at the shops full of preservatives and all that(which actually can make 'em yummy too)but in the end they are still quite great... only problem was that i think i overbaked them but other than that, they are the best homemade doughnuts ever... thanks for the recipe... its a keeper
