Yummy baked doughnuts! Soft inside filled with raspberry jam or topped with chocolate!
So doughnuts have to be one of my favourite snacks! Who can resist the soft sweet dough filled with gooey (technical term!) fillings. I've wanted to try making my own doughnuts for ages but didn't want to invest in a deep fat fryer. That's when I tried experimenting with a sweet baked dough instead. You don't get the traditional 'ring' that you get from the frying method but you do still get a super yummy treat which can be enjoyed any day of the week!

Recipe inspired by baked doughnut recipe on www.bakingmad.com
500g Strong white bread flour
1 Egg beaten
75g Caster Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Salt
100g Melted Butter
100g Caster Sugar
300g Raspberry Jam
Step 1. Add to a large bowl the flour, yeast, caster sugar and salt.
Step 2. Heat the milk in a saucepan until boiling. Remove from the heat and add in the butter. Stir until melted and leave until the milk has cooled slightly.
Step 3. Once the milk/melted butter has reached hand temperature add to the dry ingredients with the beaten egg. Mix together and then knead for around 10 minutes either by hand or with the dough attachment on your stand mixer.
Step 4. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased large bowl and leave to prove for roughly 2 hours.
Step 5. Once proven, split the dough into roughly 16 balls and place on baking sheets for the second prove. (Make sure you leave space in between them!) Leave for around an hour.
Step 6. Preheat your oven to 190°C (170°C fan) and place a roasting tin in the bottom of your oven filled with water. This creates steam in your oven which will help make fluffy doughnuts! Pop the doughnuts in to bake for around 14-16 minutes, until golden.
Step 7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Brush each doughnut with the melted butter and roll in the caster sugar.
Step 8. Add the raspberry jam to a piping bag and make a small hole in each doughnut. Fill the doughnuts with your jam (or other filling) or dunk them in melted milk chocolate if you prefer!
