Ever wonder how light, fluffy doughnuts manage to burst with heavy, juicy jelly? Truth be told, I've only ever sampled jelly doughnuts from my childhood favorite pit stop, Dunkin' Donuts -- and even as a kid would typically skip the fruity pastries for a less messy variety. But who knew homemade jelly doughnuts were so simple to make? Unlike the meticulous assemblage of the likes of ravioli, pot stickers and dumplings, which require precise amounts fastidiously stuffed in their casing, the jelly doughnut is a less daunting endeavor, as the jelly gets pumped into cooked doughnuts with the tip of a pastry bag.
