Warm Jam Donuts

COOK: 35min




  • 300g Self raising flour
  • 2/3 cup caster sugar, plus ½ cup to coat
  • 80ml (1/3 cup vegetable oil)
  • 1 large egg
  • 175ml buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tsp of one of our delicious YVH Fruit Jams of your choice, this time we’re going with traditional Strawberry Jam
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 180C, and lightly grease 6 hole muffin pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift the flour, caster sugar, and pinch of salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the vegetable oil, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla extract. Add this to the dry mixture and stir to combine.
  4. Using a spoon, place a spoonful of mixture to each muffin hole and make a small well in the centre of each one. Fill each well with ½ tsp of your selected fruit jam, then cover the jam with the remaining donut mixture.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, remove from oven and set aside.
  6. In a small bowl combine the remaining sugar and cinnamon. Melt butter in a separate bowl. Once the muffins have cooled slightly, brush each one with butter and roll in the sugar mix.
