Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water (110° F)

  • 1 tablespoon of active dry yeast

  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup of confectioners’ sugar

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2 large egg yolks

  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, plus 2 quarts for the heavy pot

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 or 2 cups of Ma-Mere’s Maison Strawberry Jelly

Directions

  • Mix the warm water and yeast in a bowl. Let it sit for about 5 minutes or until it bubbles.
  • Add two egg yolks, 2 tablespoons of oil, and vanilla to the yeast mixture. Whisk until combined and set aside. In a large bowl combine the flour, salt, and confectioners’ sugar.
  • Use a spatula to mix the dry and liquid mixtures together until it turns into dough. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rise for 1-2 hours.
  • Place the dough on a clean countertop dusted heavily with flour. Sprinkle some flour on top of the dough and roll it out.
  • Take a circle cookie cutter and cut out circles of dough.
  • Add oil into a heavy pot and heat over medium heat until it reaches about 350°F.
  • Place 6 pieces in the oil and fry until golden brown. Once they start to puff up, flip them.
  • Once both sides are golden, pick them up and place them on a paper towel-lined baking sheet.
  • Use a toothpick to puncture the side of each to form a pocket in the center.
  • Place the tip of the piping bag into the pocket and squeeze 1 to 2 tablespoons of Ma-Mere’s Maison Strawberry Jelly inside.
  • Cover the donuts with sugar and they are ready to serve!
