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.
