Doughnut, donut, you say tomato, I say tomahto Let’s call the whole thing off! But I didn’t write this to promote Esther Armstrongs new Album, this post is all about the World of the doughnut. But this might not be what most people think, you see a round ring-style donut is an American doughnut called that by the chain Dunkin’ Donuts who made it ubiquitous, but the round “filled” doughnut is what we are looking at today…
Top 10 Amazing Recipes For Doughnuts
10 – Chocolate Cream
Everyone loves the classic chocolate filled doughnuts, but this has a slight twist in being gluten-free! Crispy outside and perfectly soft inside, they are the perfect way to start this list off.
9 – Jam Doughnut
In the UK, we call these Jam Doughnuts, and they are the classic kind, found all over the place and most probably one of the first things you will try and bake on your own. I have tried to make these and failed miserably, but I jotted down the recipe on a notepad from the TV.
8 – Bacon and Bourbon
Much like the Jam Doughnut above this one, I have no idea if anyone outside the UK knows about them, but I hope so. With a “subtly boozy” custard filling and caramelised salty-sweet, bacon bits over the top these are sure to make anyone an instant doughnut fan.
7 – Apple Crumb
With a savoury twist this cinnamon apple filled doughnuts are simple to make, and would go down rather nicely as an after tea snack.
6 – Puff Pastry
This is a fantastic spin on the basic strawberry filled doughnut, with a puff pastry shell, whole fruit inside and a mouth-watering Lemon glaze to finish it off these sound like they could well be the best tasting thing on earth!
5 – Oreo
No doughnut post would be complete without an Oreo filled doughnut, and so here it is.
4 – Peanut butter
I am not the biggest fan of peanut butter, but I do know a lot of people are, so these doughnuts filled with a peanut butter crème should go down rather nicely.
3 – Cider Yeast
Some things make your mouth water without seeing them, but just saying what they are! These homemade yeasted apple cider doughnuts that are filled with a creamy cinnamon flavoured caramel sauce do exactly that.
2 – Strawberry Margarita
Most of you know by now that I love all thing strawberry, so it will come as no surprise to see this in the number 2 spot.
1 – The Easter Filler
Those of you with a god memory might remember my post “Top 10 Cupcakes Made With Cadburys Creme Eggs” there was loads of great cake ideas to make with these tasty chocolate eggs, but this filled doughnut with one in the middle is too nice for words!
