PB&J Doughnuts – Fluffy yeast doughnuts are stuffed with strawberry jelly and covered in peanut butter glaze to make the best pairing for a hot cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.
We do not mess around with coffee in our house. My husband and I both need a strong, hot cup of coffee to get every day started – sometimes two! But not just any coffee will do. It’s got to have impeccable flavor and the strength to get us going first thing in the morning and keep us going all day.
It’s no surprise that the coffee of choice for us is Dunkin’ Donuts® – I’ve bragged all about this coffee many times before. But now the coffee comes in a Dunkin’ Donuts® 30oz. Canister, which is even better for us because it helps keep the coffee fresh.
In honor of the new Dunkin’ Donuts® 30oz. Canister, I am sharing my favorite treat to enjoy with a hot cup of Dunkin’ Donuts® coffee – doughnuts, of course! But these aren’t just any doughnuts. Say hello to my PB&J Doughnuts!
The thing I love most about these PB&J doughnuts is the familiar flavors- you’ll feel like a kid again, enjoying the simplicity of a PB&J sandwich. But this time, you get to pair the sweetness of the treat with a rich cup of coffee, which makes it more acceptable for breakfast time. And for adults.
If you’re familiar with the yeast doughnuts that I’ve posted previously – like these blackberry slider doughnuts and these pistachio doughnuts – you’ll notice that the dough recipe for these PB&J doughnuts is exactly the same. No need to switch up a tried and true recipe, am I right?
After making the doughnuts, we simply stuff them with store-bought strawberry jelly (or grape jelly if you’re my husband) and then dip in a peanut butter glaze. The peanut butter glaze is the real star of this recipe. It’s the perfect combo of salty and sweet and sits perfectly smooth on the top of each doughnut. Don’t forget the chopped peanuts for a dash of flair on top!
In case these doughnuts are the first you’ll be attempting, here are some tips to make sure you get them exactly right:
- Do not skimp on rising time! In order for these doughnuts to get nice and fluffy, they need time to rise. So don’t go cutting corners and thinking you use the dough after it’s only half-risen. Trust me.
- Invest in a candy thermometer to monitor the hot oil. Oil temperature is super important when frying – too cold and the food will get greasy and fail to get browned and too hot and the food will brown on the outside but not cook all the way in the center.
- Speaking of oil temperature, crowding the pan can dramatically reduce the temperature of the oil. Therefore, you should only fry about 4 doughnuts at a time to keep the temperature steady.
- To fill the doughnuts, I used a piping bag. However, if that step seems intimidating, there is no shame in slicing the doughnuts down the middle and stuffing them with the jelly instead.
