I LOVE jelly doughnuts. My very favorite was made an a now defunct shop a few miles from here and was called "chocolate cherry lips"

It was a raised doughnut, pinched and shaped to look like lips, then fried, filled with tart cherry jam and covered in dark chocolate glaze. To die for!

I would try some pudding mixes for the custard type fillings like lemon or plain custard.Homemade would be better but maybe not what your looking to duplicate.

I've seen them too but not locally, just on TV I'm pretty sure. Seems like a recipe Paula Dean would have... I should look around. I just hate it when the maple syrup from my pancakes spreads into the bacon... ha! Yeah right. It's a brilliant idea for a donut!

There's no mystery to it, it's just finding a flavor that you like.
Selkie, I was referring to fruit fillings (as referenced the solid fruit pieces). You are very right about the custard and curd fillings.

And I have to apologize. This is one of my recipes I don't have committed to memory and since we are reorganizing my work area I haven't found it yet. I have to go out of a little while but DH is going to help me with the search when we get back.

Most of these jams can be made with some super syrup (1 cup sugar and 1 cup water brought to a boil) and add the berry. Simmer it down till it thickens and cool it in the fridge. I usually make some of this for pancake topping on Sunday mornings.

Finally, I have found and posted my Raspberry Filling recipe. I am going to use it for some linzer cookies this weekend.

Hope it was worth the wait!
