There is nothing better than freshly cooked donuts, especially those filled with jam. I wanted to make donuts for lunch today but I didn’t have the time to wait on the yeast activating to make my usual recipe. I know there is a few of you that can’t eat yeast so this recipe will hopefully suit you.

You can refrigerate or freezer the uncooked donuts until you are ready to use them, that way you will always be able to enjoy them fresh.
