Mother's Day wouldn't be complete without a sweet treat. You can use any doughnut or brioche dough recipe you feel most comfortable with (or store-bought!) and elevate it with these gourmet artisan fillings. These are excellent served with morning coffee, saved for dessert, or any time in between!

 

Lemon Frosted & Marionberry Filled

ingredients


4 Doughnuts

For Filling:
1 jar Jansal Valley® Marionberry Spreadable Fruit / thinned with 1-2 T water

For Topping:
½ C Confectioner's Sugar
1½ T Water / or as needed
Jansal Valley® Lemon Sugar / as needed

 

method


Stir the marionberry and water together to thin the mixture slightly. Transfer it into a piping bag fitted with a wide, round piping tip. Fill the doughnuts with 2-3 tablespoons of the marionberry mixture. Set aside, and fill the remaining doughnuts.
Combine the confectioner's sugar and water in a mixing bowl. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of the mixture over each doughnut, coating the top evenly, and allowing some to drip down the sides. Sprinkle the lemon sugar over the top of the doughnuts, and enjoy.

Coffee & Chili Cookies & Cream Doughnuts

ingredients


4 Doughnuts

For Filling:
¾ C Whole Milk
¼ C Granulated Sugar
2 T All Purpose Flour
Pinch Kosher Salt
2 Egg Yolks
1 t Cook’s Extracts Cookie Vanilla Extract

For Topping:
2 T Custard Filling, reserved
¼ C (about 6 pcs) Chocolate Wafer or Shortbread Cookies / pulverized
1 T Jansal Valley® Coffee & Chili Spice Rub

 

method


To prepare the custard filling, scald the milk by gently heating it until just below a boil in a medium saucepan. Meanwhile, whisk the sugar, flour, salt, and eggs together in a mixing bowl. Once the milk has scalded, remove it from the heat. While whisking, slowly add the milk to the egg mixture. Whisk until all of the mixture is combined, then transfer the mixture back to the sauce pan. Over medium heat, stir the custard mixture until it just begins to thicken, 4-5 minutes. The final consistency should be similar to pudding. Remove from the heat, and set aside to cool completely.
Pulverize the chocolate cookies together with the spice blend in a food processor, then set aside. 
Transfer the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a wide, round piping tip. Pipe each doughnut with 2-3 tablespoons of the custard mixture, and set aside. Top each doughnut with a thin layer of the custard filling, then sprinkle liberally with the pulverized chocolate cookies and spice mixture. Enjoy.
