Doughnuts are normally deep fried – but these are baked to reduce the fat content.


Plain White Flour

500 g

Caster Sugar

100 g

Dried baking yeast

1 teaspoon(s)

Egg, whole, raw

1 medium, raw, beaten

Skimmed Milk

125 ml

Low Calorie Jam

400 g

Ground Cinnamon

½ teaspoon(s), level


  1. Sift flour and a pinch of salt together in a large bowl. Stir in the yeast and half the sugar. Make a well in middle and add the egg.
  2. Mix together milk and 125ml water to make a warm liquid, then pour into flour well. Mix with a wooden spoon to form a soft dough.
  3. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead dough until smooth and elastic - about 5 minutes. Divide into 20 equal pieces and shape into round doughnuts.
  4. Mist a baking tray with cooking spray. Arrange the doughnuts on tray, spacing well apart to allow for rising. Cover with plastic wrap or clean, damp tea-towels until almost doubled in size. This will take 40 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas mark 7. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until risen and golden brown. Allow to cool slightly.
  6. Make a small incision into each doughnut and fill with a teaspoon of jam. Brush each doughnut with water and roll in caster sugar and cinnamon.
