PB & J Doughnuts

With me and my little family in the process of moving its really hard to do craft projects. Most of my stuff is packed up so that's why all my recent posts have been food. I will have an area all to my own for crafts but for now i wanted to share a treat i made for my man.
After reading Simple Sweetness and seeing her post on Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes it reminded me of an episode on The Best Thing I Ever Ate. They showed these doughnuts from The Doughnut Plant that were a PB & J doughnut. The owner said it was a top secret way to get the doughnut filled but i thought it cant be rocket science. I decided to make a treat for my husband and since he loves Peanut Butter i thought i would try to make my own PB & J doughnut. Do you want to see my top secret way to fill a homemade doughnut?

I used a recipe that my mother had for doughnuts. We tried both a cake doughnut and a yeast one but the yeast doughnuts were so much easier and they turned out so much better. Im sure most of you have a doughnut recipe any recipe will work. If anyone wants the one i used i will be more then happy to share just let me know.

We used her doughnut cutter but they puffed up on us so much you couldn't see the hole but this cutter saved us a lot of time.

After we cooked and let the doughnuts cool i used one of those frosting tubes but filled it with strawberry jelly and stuck it through the doughnut and injected it with the jelly. I used a longer skinny tip and inserted it twice just opposite from each other. In the same hole i ejected the jelly on two sides. I hope I'm explaining this right I basically made a v shape and then turned the doughnut to make another v shape so the whole doughnut had jelly running through the inside.

Now it was time for the fun part! We made a peanut butter icing. We just used a simple icing (powdered sugar and milk)recipe and added a lil bit of warmed peanut butter. We didn't measure that we just added according to taste. We dipped each doughnut in the warm icing.

They looked pretty good knowing the fact that i have never made a homemade doughnut before.

I grabbed one of the doughnut holes and quickly ejected it and dunked it in the icing so i could open it up to show you and to taste them. They tasted so good basically a sweeter PB and J sandwich

My husband was in heaven! He wants me to make them for his work so i will be making them again soon. I hope you enjoyed it and let me know what you think!

  8. It seems like it's been forever since I made doughnuts (probably because it has been!) I can't sleep and am up extra early this morning, so perhaps I'll surprise Sexy Nerd with some homemade doughnuts :)
