There’s no more lining up at the bakery for this sweet treat! Get your pie maker out, grab a few vital ingredients and you’re well on your way to making a delicious bun treat for the whole family – at a FRACTION of the cost for the real deal.
A White Wings doughnut mix, raspberry jam and a can of cream, plus a few pantry items is all you need to get cracking on this recipe.
An important note about the cream: Now I know not whipping cream from scratch will be questioned. And by all means, you can absolutely go the traditional route if you want. BUT I want a stiff, stable and FAST cream. So, for me, a can of Woolworths Whipped Cream it is. Plus, it tastes scrumptious.
With all that said, it’s time to warm up your pie maker and tie up your apron strings, let’s get your bake on!
Pie Maker Jam Cream Buns Recipe
Makes: 8 doughnut buns
- White Wings Baked Doughnut Bites mix
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup milk
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 Woolworths Whipped Cream can
- Raspberry jam
1. Preheat the pie maker. Take the White Wings Baked Doughnut Bites mix and make up the mixture according to packet directions.
2. Using a pastry brush, lightly grease the pie maker cavities with melted butter or oil. Fill the pie maker cavities ¾ of the way full and close the lid. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes or until cooked through.
3. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly. Roll in the cinnamon sugar (sachet is in the box!).
4. Using a serrated knife, slice the doughnut buns in half.
5. Fill with a ring of cream and add a teaspoon of raspberry jam to the centre. You could also spread the surface with jam before adding the cream. Whatever you fancy!
6. Pop them on a plate dusted with cinnamon sugar and serve immediately.
Pretty awesome, right? You can even freeze unfilled doughnut buns until you’re ready to eat them. Just defrost and fill – or skip the filling and warm them up plain in the pie maker for a cinnamon sugared treat. Yum!
