Picture of Jelly Doughnut Recipe
After making apple cider donuts, I was left to wonder exactly how jelly doughnuts were made. This problem started to eat away at me, leaving me with a large empty feeling inside. I needed to figure this out and be whole again. So, I set out to fill my spiritual cavity with the sweet gelatinous knowledge of jelly doughnut making. In the process, I learned a thing or two about the process. For one, jelly doughnuts are a total mess to make and secondly, jelly donuts are even more delicious when you make them yourself. I would even hypothesize that an individual hasn't fully lived until they have fully made jelly donuts.

Step 1: Ingredients

These look amazeballz! I will attempt these on Wednesday (my day off) and am very very excited. I want to create these on a regular basis and give/sell(depending on how good they turn out) to the other students in my neighbourhood till I am legend and then I will be known as the Doughnut Dealer. 8)

OMG these look delicious!!! ;-P~
It makes me drool.
Did you mean let milk warm to room temp or did you heat it then let it cool. Scalding does make a difference, (could make them better, dunno)
thanks, I do fried dough enough during th eyear , but never tried to fill them, but mine are never made this puffy. I am using plain old pizza dough. I will give these a whirl in the fall, when times are cooler.


about how long does it take to deep fry the donuts so we know when to think they are done? Of course keep oil at the proscrined 350 degrees is helpful! nice instructable

I am not really sure. Once they started to golden I took them out. Perhaps they were in for a minute or two.

ON step 7 you might want to specify each side should be lightly oiled or have a cloth put over it so it doesn't dry out. other wise i just made these and they were great!

I've wanted to try to make donuts for awhile now. Instead of filling with jelly I guess a person could cut out the rounds and use a pill bottle to cut out the holes. Have you ever tried that? Except for the eggs, this recipe looks like my bread recipe.

 I like it when you mess around with donuts (especially when they are minty and chocolatey).
