Take a bite of these delicious home-made doughnuts filled with sweet strawbeery jam. Be careful, they can be very hot!
Combine flour, sugar, yeast and salt in a bowl. Make a well. Mix in milk, butter and egg until dough starts to come together – it may be sticky.
Knead on a well-floured surface until smooth. Place in a greased bowl. Cover. Prove for 1 1/2 hours or until dough has doubled in size.
Punch down the dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface for 2 minutes or until smooth. Roll out dough until 1cm thick. Rest dough for 2 minutes.
Roll out batter and use a 7cm round cutter to cut out discs. Don’t cut out centres. Place on a lined baking tray. Set aside for 30 minutes to prove.
Deep-fry for 1 minute each side or until golden and puffed. Place on a plate lined with paper towel.
Spoon a 284g jar of St. Dalfour Strawberry Jam into a piping bag fitted with a 5mm nozzle. Push the nozzle into the side of the doughnuts and pipe in the jam. Dust with icing sugar.
