Jam (jelly) doughnut (donut) is considered a traditional doughnut and very popular over here. It is best served warm with red jam (raspberry or strawberry). It could be jam-filled inside the bun or the jam is injected into a 'well' on top of the doughnut like what I have in my picture attached. I bought this one at a local small bakery - not a big franchise like Donut King (largest one here, similar to Dunkin Donut, I guess). Passing by it to get some groceries, I could not resist getting some as they smelled and looked so freshly made. Sure enough, when I got home to try them, they were simply delicious - soft, light, not too sweet, and with just the right amount of jam on top.

I don't know what it is about jelly donuts, but they're amazing. I took my kids to Dunkin Donuts for the first time last year. It was love at first bite for the kindergartner, although she stuck with a kind that was filled with baked apples and dusted with cinnamon and powdered sugar up until I introduced her to the idea of Munchkins (donut holes). Now, whenever we drive to Phoenix, she begs me to stop and buy her jelly-filled Munchkins.

Filled with baked apples... hmm, that sounds yummy! I don't blame her for wanting to get some whenever she has the chance. Oh wait, are the Munchkins just jelly-filled or they also come in baked apples filled too? I don't remember seeing those here; the only donut holes I've seen are just normal cinnamon kind.

@sishy7 The Munchkins come with jelly, but there are also plain glazed and chocolate versions. I think there might be a cinnamon sugar one, too... shoot, now I need to go get some. You know, for science.

I like to eat a Maple Glazed Donut a few times a year.

I have to say it'd be hard for me to find a donut I don't like...

The photo looks delish! I love jelly doughnuts, cinnamon, apple, so yummy. My favorite one is Boston Kreme at Dunkin Donuts. I like to have doughnuts with a cup of coffee for an afternoon treat.

That particular one was really good, so soft like it melted as I took a bite.

Yum yum! I usually don't have the jam filled kind but on occasion they are a delicious treat. If I was able to have donuts more often I would for sure be a lot bigger, they are so hard to resist!

I don't either because I'm afraid it will be too sweet for my like. Glad this one wasn't, and the jelly was just on top with none inserted inside the bun. Good to see you @jhechorain !

Good to see you too :) I know some of them are really too sweet and I don't end up finishing it either.

In our country they are usually filled with cherries jam or custard. They are so good.

Custard is an option here too. But cherry-filled is not too common - that sounds delicious.

@sishy7 I prefer the custard filling to the cherry, but I have to say that both are good.
