jelly "faux" nuts

The boy and I like to watch CBC's Best Recipes Ever He loves that i cook so many yummy things and has started to take an interest in looking at recipe books and watching the cooking shows. One day we watched Kary make Jelly Fauxnuts and he says "oooh Mummy, can you make those?" of course i said sure, why not!

Personally, i think the boy has a little crush on Kary Osmond, i teased him saying his "girlfriend" was on TV and he blushed, hahah!! Cute!


2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (125 mL) granulated sugar
2 tsp (10 mL) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1-1/4 cups(300 mL) milk
1 egg
1/4 cup (50 mL) canola oil
2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla
1/2 cup (125 mL) raspberry jam


4 tsp (18 mL) granulated sugar


Line muffin cups with paper liners or grease; set aside. In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, whisk together milk, egg, oil and vanilla; pour over dry ingredients and mix just until moistened.

Spoon about three-quarters of the batter into prepared muffin cups. With teaspoon, make dent in centre of each; add spoonful of jam. Spoon remaining batter over top.


Sprinkle sugar over batter.

Bake in centre of 375°F (190°C) oven until golden, about 20 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool on rack.

This recipe made 12 "faux" nuts for us, i could have probably made 14 if i had spread the mixture out a bit more, they really fluff up and are really delicious warm from the oven! I froze the remaining fauxnuts and just pop them in the boys lunch when he gets a treat =)


  1. Oh my! How was the taste and texture? Were they as good as doughnuts?

  2. They were delicious, right outta the oven Hannah! I froze the rest and have been getting them out, leaving them to defrost at room temp and they still taste good, more like a muffin at this point, but fresh...YUMMY =)
