Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Lightly grease a 12-hole muffin tin (or use a silicone one). Put 140g sugar, flour and bicarb in a bowl and mix to combine. In a jug, whisk together the yogurt, eggs and vanilla. Tip the jug contents and melted butter into the dry ingredients and quickly fold with a metal spoon to combine.
  2. Divide two-thirds of the mixture between the muffin holes. Carefully add 1 tsp jam into the centre of each, then cover with the remaining mixture. Bake for 16-18 mins until risen, golden and springy to touch.
  3. Leave the muffins to cool for 5 mins before lifting out of the tin and rolling in the extra sugar.

Loved these. Going to try filling them with nutella and rolling in caster sugar with some ground cinnamon. Agree that the amount of sugar to roll them in is a bit much.

Tasty but need to be eaten on day of baking. Otherwise heat in microwave to perk them up!

Really nice but my jam also sunk to the bottom, not sure why? Would probably just put sugar on top next time instead of rolling them in it.

Gorgeous and so incredibly easy to make. Agree with Claire, the amount of sugar used to roll them in is vastly over estimated.

This is a great recipe - very very fast to make. I used our muffin tray which only made 8 (and took another 8 minutes to cook). We skipped the rolling in sugar step and it was still fab.

These were delicious and really easy to make. Even with strawberry jam in the middle (we ran out of raspberry) they were still nice. The amount of sugar for rolling the doughnuts in is a huge over-estimate though. Use half the amount stated and you'll still have loads leftover.

Mine didn't really taste much like doughnuts, but were very nice muffins. I only used a small amount of sugar for rolling them in though.

These look amazing! Can't wait to try them. Would it be ok to use icing sugar for the dusting? Or maybe a mixture of icing and caster?

These are lovely, taste just like fairground doughnuts. Mine took the time stated in my fan oven. Will definately be making these again.

Does anyone know how well they keep or are they freezable only 2 of us?

To make Gluten Free, use Gf Self Raising flour and 1 tsp GF baking powder.

Yum! These are really easy to make and taste delicious. I made one batch with Nutella and they were gone in a flash!

These were gorgeous. I have made 2 batches now, and everyone has said that they are nicer than real doughnuts! Mine were perfect after 15 mins in a fan oven. The only issue I had with my 2nd batch was that the jam sank all the way to the bottom of the muffin and some was lost when I removed them from the tin. Any ideas why?

I adore doughnuts and this recipe seemed to cut out some calories by baking rather than frying. Very easy to make, came out lovely and golden. I used blueberry jam so I suppose you could use any flavour you fancied. Much lighter than a muffin but not quite a doughnut taste but very moreish anyway! Will definitely be making these again!!

Delicious! Amazingly doughnut-like but alot less naughty:-) Only took 15mins in fan oven. Used raspberry jam with seeds in worked just fine. Will definitely make again!

Easy to make, I doubled the mixture and they only took 15mins but I have a fan oven!

Look lovely!
