Raspberry Jam Donuts


There’s nothing more delicious than taking the first bite into a warm, sugar-coated jam donut. As your teeth bite into the soft centre, your tongue is delighted with a sweet, berry taste and suddenly the donut becomes a whole lot better.

I mean really, who doesn’t love donuts?! So many of my childhood memories are eating mini cinnamon donuts at Donut King; although I have barely touched them through my adulthood.

The thought of eating a donut that tastes like a donut, has the same texture as a donut, and is much healthier than a donut makes me very excited. There’s two ways you can make these gorgeous creations; you can buy a cake pop maker ($2 from Kmart) which gives them that fluffy round shape, or you can bake them in the oven in a muffin pan – the choice is yours. Either way, you won’t be able to stop eating these, trust me!






2 cups wholemeal flour

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 eggs

2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 tablespoons coconut oil

3/4 cup rice malt syrup

2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk

For decoration: Natvia Natural Sweetener


Raspberry Jam:

1 packet frozen raspberries

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons rice malt syrup

1 tablespoon coconut oil



For donuts:

  • Preheat oven to 190°C if using oven.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the rest of your ingredients and mix well.
  • Pour the liquid into the flour, and mix until just combined well.
  • Spoon the batter into your cake top maker or spray a muffin pan and bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool while you prepare the jam.

For raspberry jam:

  • In a small pot on low heat, add all ingredients and stir through slowly. You may also let simmer for 5 – 10 minutes.
  • When the raspberries have cooked and jam is hot, turn of the heat and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • If the jam is not thick enough you can drain the excess liquid out slowly.
  • Spoon the jam into the piping bag and pierce through sides of each donut so the jam is in the centre.
  • Roll each donut in Natvia and they’re ready to be served – enjoy!

*Makes 40 cake tops and 12 muffins
