White Chocolate and Raspberry Baked Doughnuts
Blue Ribbon Recipe
A terrifically clever doughnut recipe. Using frozen puff pastry means these can be made in no time when a doughnut urge hits. The puff pastry crisps up when baked. We opted for raspberry jam filling. The jam and melted white chocolate chips just ooze out when you bite into the baked doughnut. Once baked, top with a little powdered sugar or frosting for added sweetness and style. This is a simple doughnut recipe that'll make people think you've been in the kitchen for hours. Mornings just got a little sweeter! The Test Kitchen
How to Make White Chocolate and Raspberry Baked Doughnuts
- You can use really any jam or preserves you would like. I have not yet tried this piping in a custard or lemon curd after baked. The basic technique lends itself to all sorts of variations.
Peanut Butter and Jelly: For filling use 1/2 cup peanut butter, 3 Tbsp whipping cream, 2 Tbsp powdered sugar, and 1 Tbsp honey mixed together and 1 tsp of your favorite jam. Then use 1 tsp peanut butter mixture and one of jam using the same method above.
- Blueberry Variation: Use 1 tsp blueberry jam, 2-3 fresh blueberries for the center. Use an icing of powdered sugar and lemon juice. After baking dip top of the doughnut into the icing. Sprinkle or zest a bit of lemon rind on top of icing for additional flavor.
- Orange Variation: Using homemade orange marmalade, place 1 tsp for each doughnut. Top with powdered sugar or icing of powdered sugar/orange juice and a bit of the orange rind.
