How to win friends and influence people? Make them these doughnuts. It’s certainly done me well up until now. I serve these filled doughnuts with ever-changing flavours at my foodie Pop-Ups and they always go down an absolute treat. This here is for everybody who has eaten my doughnuts and asked for the recipe.
Enriched dough that has been deep-fried, rolled in sugar and then filled with deliciousness…that right there is a recipe for big grins. These are best served warm and I’d recommend making a double batch if you want to gain “top-neighbour-with-delicious-baked-goods” award. These doughnuts require time and patience, especially if you are making your fillings from scratch. I’ve included links to my favourite fillings which I’m sure will grow more expansive as I experiment with more and more flavours. You will certainly be rewarded and will probably come back to this recipe time and time again.
Fill Me In…
Experiment with new and different doughnut fillings. Here are some of my favourites.
Mango & Lime Curd
A tropical twist on the more traditional lemon curd – makes a good filling in a layer cake, in a pie or on toast.
Pistachio Crème Pâtissière
Pistachio ice cream is my favourite – it’s no surprise that is one of my filling flavours for my doughnuts.
Damson & Star Anise Jam
This is a great way to preserve the taste of early Autumn for months to come.
Apricot & Vanilla Bean Jam
This is everything that’s good about French jam – not too set, definitely not too sweet and the perfect accompaniment for good bread.
