Today’s recipe comes from the cookbook “Homemade Products with Brand-name Quality” (ISBN: 9781589807518) by Charlette Carollo. It is available at online stores and and lists for $14.95.
Jelly Doughnuts

1 package yeast
1⁄4 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk
1⁄3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1⁄3 cup butter, melted
3 eggs, beaten
51⁄2 to 61⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
vegetable oil
32-ounce jar jelly (your favorite flavor)
confectioners’ sugar

Dissolve yeast in warm water in a bowl. Let rest 2 minutes. Add milk, sugar, salt and butter to yeast mixture. Add eggs and stir well to blend. Gradually add enough flour to form a smooth workable dough. Knead on a lightly floured board until smooth and elastic. Divide into three parts. Roll out each part to one-fourth-inch thick. Cut into three-inch circles. Place on greased cookie sheets. Let rise in warm place to double in size. Deep fry in hot vegetable oil until golden brown, turning once. Drain on absorbent paper towels. Let cool. Cut a small hole in side of doughnut and insert jelly to center using a pastry bag and wide, plain pastry tube. For powdered doughnuts, coat with confectioners’ sugar.
Yields: about 3 dozen doughnuts
