Baked Jelly Filled Doughnuts

I have done it! I have created a healthier version of America's favorite jelly filled doughnut. Since getting my doughnut pan, I have been experimenting with different baked doughnut recipes. I wanted to venture outside of the pan by making a stuffed doughnut. That is how I came up with these babies.

Baked Jelly Filled Doughnuts with Chocolate Frosting
makes 7-8
1 cup flour
¼ tsp baking soda
¾ tsp baking powder
1 egg white
4 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp applesauce
¼ cup warm milk (110 degrees)
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp yeast
2 tbsp powdered sugar
6 tbsp Greek yogurt
2 tbsp cocoa powder
½ cup strawberry jelly

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix the milk and yeast together along with the granulated sugar. Set it aside for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, adding in the butter, applesauce, and egg. Let the dough rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Roll out the dough on a floured surface about ½” thick. Cut into 2” circles. Bake on a nonstick stone for 12 minutes. Meanwhile, make the frosting. Mix together the Greek yogurt, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar until there are no more lumps. Pierce the hot doughnuts with a small knife. Once cooled, pipe in the jelly and frost.
