These soft, moist cake donut muffins remind me of little jam filled round donut balls made by local bakeries years ago. They could be found at your local neighbourhood store or supermarket when I was growing up here in Newfoundland.

As a kid I remember thinking that I would make them with more jam inside and roll them in powdered sugar too. That memory of childhood inspired this variation of cake donut muffins.

Although these filled donut muffins are still an indulgence, they are at least baked, not fried like regular donuts. Now you can rationalize having two!

These are awesome as lunchbox surprises or as the highlight of your weekend brunch.

If you want to make a homemade compote to use as a filling in these filled donut muffins, I have a suggestion. The raspberry compote in our very popular Homemade Flakies recipe is perfect to use as a donut filling too.

If you still want to use a store bought jam in these filled donut muffins, try purchasing a more fruit/reduced sugar version. You may find some brands too sweet to use as a filling.

Raspberry Filled Donut Muffins. These powdered donut muffins with raspberry jam filling are a great brunch alternative to high fat fried donuts but with plenty of authentic donut flavour.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup cake and pastry flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground nutmeg
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup raspberry jam
  • melted butter
  • powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Sift together the flours, salt, baking powder and nutmeg. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg and sugar until very light in color.
  4. Add the oil and whisk in well, then add the whipping cream until well blended.
  5. Fold in the dry ingredients by hand just until the dry ingredients are incorporated into the batter. Do not over mix.
  6. Bake for about 13 minutes for mini muffins or 15-18 minutes for larger muffins. Watch them carefully and as soon as a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, take them out. It is very easy to over bake mini muffins especially.
  7. Let them cool for 10 minutes before removing them from the pan. Cool on a wire rack.
  8. When the muffins are cooled, fill a piping bag about ½ cup raspberry jam. Attach a star tip or other larger open tip to the piping bag.
  9. Push the piping bag tip into the center of the muffin. This can be done on the top or side of the muffin. Wiggle the piping bag tip around a little bit to create a cavity before squeezing the piping bag to fill the cavity.
  10. When all of your muffins are filled, brush the outsides of the muffins with a little melted butter and roll them in powdered sugar before serving.

Notes

If you want to make a homemade compote to use as a filling in these filled donut muffins, I have a suggestion. The raspberry compote in our very popular compote in our very popular Homemade Flakies recipe is perfect to use as a donut filling too.

If you still want to use a store bought jam in these filled donut muffins, try purchasing a more fruit/reduced sugar version. You may find some brands too sweet to use as a filling.

Made these in 12 smaller cupcake tins, used seedless blackberry jam. They are absolutely scrumptious. Very easy,a few dishes to wash but worth the time. Thank you I will be making these many more times.
