Berry-Filled Doughnuts Recipe

Just four ingredients are all you'll need for this sure-bet breakfast treat. Friends and family will never guess that refrigerated buttermilk biscuits are the base for these golden, jelly-filled doughnuts. —Ginny Watson, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:10 servings


  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • 2 tubes (6 ounces each) small refrigerated flaky biscuits (5 count)
  • 1/2 cup seedless strawberry jam
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar


  • 1. In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 350°. Separate biscuits; press each to flatten slightly. Fry biscuits, a few at a time, until golden brown, 1 to 1-1/4 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
  • 2. Cut a small hole in the tip of a pastry bag or corner of a food-safe plastic bag; insert a small pastry tip. Fill bag with jam. With a small knife, pierce a hole into the side of each doughnut; fill with jam.
  • 3. Toss with confectioners' sugar. Serve warm. Yield: 10 servings.

"I thought this recipe was amazing! My family loves them and they were really easy to make! I found that instead of using a fryer you can use a deep pan. I would definitely recommend it!"

"This isn't a home made jelled donut recipe. Go to copy of your cook book from for the year 2003 for the right recipe page 90. I'm trying to make them from scratch not biscuits. I get your magazine and have alot of your cook books. GREAT BOOK!"

"When I was a kid we use to make these at scout camping trips. We did them with jelly, or cut in half with cinnamon a sugar or even put holes and made regular doughnuts they were always a huge hit and easy for kids to make and decorate. Great eating and great fun with little effort."

"Excellent! I tried without the filling & sprinkled with regular sugar. Tastes exactly like my favorite donuts from a Chinese Restaurant I frequent. Love the versatility of this simple but delicious recipe."

"Just like we used to make when we didn’t have any money in the olden days.

We made them the same way except we put them in a brown bag and shook them
up with powder sugar and ate them. They were such a good treat that we ate them.
All before they got cold."
