Ingredients

Doughnuts

  • 2¼ cups / 286g bread flour
  • 2½ tablespoons / 31g granulated sugar (plus extra to roll fried doughnuts in)
  • ½ tablespoon fine sea salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2½ tablespoons / 35g unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup / 120ml milk (non-dairy milk works too)
  • ½ tablespoon active dry yeast
  • frying oil

Blueberry Cream Cheese Filling

  • 1 cup / 150g frozen blueberries
  • ⅓ cup / 80ml maple syrup
  • 8oz / 227g cream cheese

Instructions

Doughnuts

  • Place the bread flour, sugar, salt, nutmeg, butter, egg, milk, and yeast into the bread machine and set it on the dough setting.
  • Take the dough out onto a floured surface and roll it out to about ½ in/1.3cm in thickness.
  • Cut out 3in/8cm circles and place them on pieces of parchment paper. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise until it doubles in size, about 30 minutes.
  • Heat your oil to 356°F/180°C and fry each doughnut for about a minute on each side. Take them out onto a wire rack to drain any extra oil. Coat the doughnuts with granulated sugar after a couple minutes of cooling.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Filling

  • In a small saucepan, heat the blueberries and maple syrup on medium heat. When the blueberries release their juices, turn the heat down to low and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes. You're looking to reduce the water content so your filling isn't watery.
  • Take the pan off the heat and set aside to cool. Once cooled, add it to a blender to purée until smooth. Beat the cream cheese in a bowl, add the blueberry mixture, and stir until combined.

To assemble

  • Using a knife or chopstick, poke a hole into each doughnut.
  • Put the blueberry cream cheese filling into a piping bag with a piping tip. Insert the piping tip into the holes and fill the doughnut with as much filling as you like.
