My jelly donut (to the layman) resulted in this:
The "drop" of filling was of a raspberry substance, smooth texture, no seeds, but phony in taste. The dough was dry and the top was stingily dusted with what seemed to be powdered sugar. This bad boy gets an F for failing to make me weep for anything other than consuming needless calories.
Now here's what these beauties should really look like:
Nice dusting of powdered sugar....
A little glaze on top never hurt....
A decent amount of filling oozing out...nice. Dough is a little dense. My grandma made them sort of like this .... (she was stingy on the jelly, though, too).
Happy Fat Tuesday! Indulge today! Get back on the wagon tomorrow! XO
