My friends, have I not stuck to my new year’s resolution and bring you healthier dishes so far this year?
Today I am proud to present you with this fabulous recipe of baked jam filled donuts. I know what you’re thinking, and I won’t lie to you. Yes the fried version is way better, but this version is way healthier. Seriously! With this version you can have your cake, ahem, donut and eat it too. Of course if you were born one of those lucky people that never have to watch their calories, you could always go for the not so healthy version here.
Now I want to ask you a serious question? Look at these donuts. Don’t they look spectacular?
OK, so you’re probably wondering what the texture is like and what they taste like. They are very light and the dough is quite fluffy, not quite the same as my jam filled buns, this dough is a bit stickier which is what makes them so light. The dough is quite similar to the beignets, you’ll notice the ingredients are the same, just different quantities, so probably if you were to fry these donuts they would taste the same.
Now I understand these may not be for everyone, but these are perfect for when you have a sweet tooth but don’t want to kill your diet. So what have you got to lose?
