Jelly-Filled Donut Muffins are marvelous muffins filled with sweet jelly and has the texture & glaze of a good cake donut!



  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 21/2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  • 1 cup fruit jelly
  • Glaze:
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then the vanilla. Add the flour and baking powder and beat on low speed until just combined. With the mixer still on low speed, pour in the buttermilk and mix until well combined.
  3. Scoop a few tablespoons of batter into the bottom of each prepared muffin cup. Make a well in the center of the batter with the back of a spoon and place a heaping tablespoon of jelly in the center. Cover the jelly a few more tablespoons of batter.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes or until the muffins start to turn a light golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the top comes out clean. Let muffins cool in pan while preparing the glaze.
  5. For the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar, buttermilk and vanilla in a small bowl until smooth. Transfer the muffins to a wire rack that’s been placed on a baking sheet to catch any dripping glaze. Brush each muffin with a generous amount of glaze going back and brushing on more until all of the glaze has been used. Let glaze set for about 5 minutes and then place a small dollop of jelly on the top of each muffin.
  6. Notes: Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
