Donuts with jam

Do you remember what Homer Simpson from the cartoon The Simpsons liked the most? It’s donuts – fluffy, warm and sweet. I like this easy recipe with currant or guava jam. The only condition is: jam shouldn’t be too fluid, it must be more like a jelly.

Donuts with jam6 oz flour
1/3 oz (8 g) fresh yeast
4 egg yolks, whisked
3 ½ oz jam
2 tbsp orange juice
2 tbsp warm cream
1 tbsp rum
2 tbsp water
powdered sugar
sugar
salt
oil

1. Dissolve yeast in water and add a pinch of sugar. Stir, cover and leave for 10 minutes in a warm place.
2. Sift flour with a pinch of salt. Make a hump with a hollow in the middle of it and pour in yeast, 1 tbsp sugar, egg yolks, cream, orange juice and rum. Add some water if needed. Knead dough until very soft and elastic.
3. Make a dough ball, cover with a towel and leave it in a warm place for an hour.
4. Roll out dough ½ inch thick and cut small pieces two inches in diameter using a glass. Divide dough circlets in two halves. Put 1spoon jam in the middle of each circlet and cover with another one. Leave for 20 minutes.
5. Heat oil in a deep pan and fry donuts two minutes on each side until golden. Put donuts on paper napkins and strew with powdered sugar.
