I don’t care what anyone says, filled donuts are the best kind of donuts. It’s not that I donut (pun intended!) like regular donuts, but the filling is what makes a donut. I think my Dad agrees, he always says that jelly is the only way to go, he can be really wise sometimes.

What if I told you that you can make jelly donut in 2 minutes? Would you believe me? Well, believe because it’s the truth. You can make a warm donut fresh out the oven microwave filled with a sweet jelly and topped with a cinnamon sugar glaze faster than you can say “I want a jelly donut.”

Oh yea, and it’s pretty dang healthy too, but that’s just an added bonus. If I didn’t make your day, I don’t know what else will!

    That looks sooo good, I need to make some! I’m a big fan of single serving treats: it fills a craving but doesn’t leave tempting sweets around the house πŸ™‚

    I got my first mug cakes book for Christmas, but as I’m doing “vegan January” at the moment, I haven’t been able to do any of those recipes yet. Even though I can’t wait.

    Thanks for this recipe, being able to make it vegan, solves the fact that I can start making mug cakes now!! πŸ˜€

    I am obsessed with mug cakes at the moment. It means that I can have cake, without having loads of cake leftover for me to overindulge with.

    I love this idea, the fruity surprise on the inside! I bet blueberries would be delicious in there too. And that glaze <3 Can't have a donut without glaze! Filled or glazed? Hmmm I vote both πŸ˜€

    Mug cake sounds so good! For some reason it’s not too big down in the Florida (although, when I lived in Chicago, it seemed everyone did it). I’ll definitely be trying this!
