Jelly Donut Cupcakes

Pin It


At Hanukkah, Jews observe the custom of eating fried foods, like Sufganiyot (jelly donuts), in commemoration of the miracle associated with the Temple oil. This baked version is a non-fried alternative, and just as much fun to eat as they are to make! 


Jelly Donut Cupcakes

Yield:  12 standard cupcakes 

Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cup cake flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature 
  • 3/4 cup pure cane, granulated white sugar 
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk, room temperature 
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
  • 1 teaspoon good quality, pure vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, room temperature
  • Jelly or jam (try our homemade fruit filling)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cupcake or muffin pan with 12 baking cups. 

Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a medium-size bowl and set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together, about 5 minutes, until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. On low speed add the egg and yolk one at a time. Beat in oil and vanilla until incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl when necessary. Gradually and add the flour mixture and buttermilk, alternating between the 2, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Do not over beat.
 
Distribute all of the batter evenly between the 12 baking cups
and top each batter filled cup with a dollop of strawberry or raspberry jelly (jelly will sink upon baking). Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool the cupcakes on a wire rack.
    Sprinkle powdered sugar over cooled cupcakes, or create a glaze by stirring together 1 cup of powdered sugar and 1-2 tablespoons of milk until smooth. Dip cupcakes in glaze and top with a dollop of jelly.

    Great as a breakfast treat too!
