This Doughnut recipe is very very easy!
Very easy and with a few ingredients. You know, good things haven't got a long ingredients list ;-)
Just flour, water and yeast. Do not tell me you haven't got these things at home! It's just impossible! :-) Then a jar of your favourite jam and it's done!
Personally I have got many fruit preserves at home, such as the apricot jam, the plum one, the fig jam and much more. So I had a lot of fun while filling these doughnuts with different tastes. Also my children had a lot of fun! Even if they were fighting for the strawberry jam ones, the most wanted :-)
The recipe has been sent by Kerry Haines from Adelaide, Australia, a fan of Thermomix-Recipes Facebook page. In Australia these delicacies are famous all over the country and they are called jam doughnuts.
You may also like a very similar recipe I have in my archive too, which is the Sweet Bomboloni Italian Doughnuts with Limoncello but Kerry's recipe is so different as it does not contain any type of fat, oil or butter, neither sugar, nor milk, nor potatoes, nor eggs! :-)
A very light and neutral dough who is compensated by jam sweetness.
Kerry used 50 g of dry yeast but I thought it was a very big amount so I've decided to use fresh yeast. If you like you can also use dry yeast and just let me know about your result! Kerry told me "the mixture expanded to fill and overflow my bowl, and the bowl is large enough for the mixture to triple".
