Jam Doughnuts

Delicious, fresh doughnuts pipe filled with your favourite Barker’s jam or curd. For best results make sure your yeast is fresh and you use high grade flour.


500g high grade flour
50g caster sugar
40g unsalted butter, softened
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
2 x 7g sachets instant yeast
10g salt
150ml warm milk
130ml water
2L vegetable oil for deep frying
250g sugar, for rolling
1 pot Barker's Raspberry Jam (or Lemon Curd)
1 lemon rind, to serve (optional)


To make dough, place all the dough ingredients in a large bowl, holding back about 40ml of water. Combine with your hands until the dough has come together and formed
Slowly add remaining 40ml of water to the dough and knead in bowl, or using a stand mixer with dough hook attachment for about 10 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic
Place dough into a lightly greased bowl, cover with a damp cotton tea towel, leave in a warm place and leave to double in size for an hour
Tip dough out onto a very lightly floured surface, and knock it back by kneading it a few times
Divide the dough into 12 equal portions and roll each portion into a ball
Place all balls onto a lined baking tray and allow to rise for an hour
Preheat a deep fryer, filled with vegetable oil, to 180°C
Gently lower each doughnut into the oil, cooking each side for about five minutes or until golden brown. Remove the doughnuts from the oil with a slotted spoon and immediately roll in sugar. Set aside and leave to cool
When doughnuts are completely cool, using a small, sharp, knife make a cut into the top of doughnut, making sure you reach the centre
Spoon some of the Raspberry Jam into a piping bag, and pipe the filling generously into the doughnut. Top with lemon rind if desired
