Prep time 10 mins
Stand Time time 10 mins
Yield Makes 8 servings
Doughnuts are a true passion for Mindi–she even asks for them instead of birthday cake. "This recipe is an awesome sweet to add to your brunch menus too," says Mindi.


  • 1 (10-oz.) jar seedless raspberry fruit spread
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur*
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 4 dozen glazed yeast doughnut holes

How to Make It

  1. Microwave fruit spread in microwave-safe glass bowl at HIGH 45 seconds or until warm and easy to stir. Stir in liqueur and vanilla. Let stand 10 minutes or until slightly thickened but still smooth.

  2. Beat whipping cream at medium speed with an electric mixer until foamy; gradually add powdered sugar, beating until soft peaks form.

  3. Serve doughnut holes with fruit spread mixture and whipped cream.

  4. *2 Tbsp. orange juice may be substituted.
