Ingredients

Donut Holes:

  • 1 cup self raising flour (or plain/all-purpose flour/s)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (white, raw or coconut sugar)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • (1/2 teaspoon baking soda if using plain or all purpose flour/s)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or canola or melted coconut oil)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or low fat/skim milk)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (or mild tasting sweetener) for coating

Filling:

  • 1/3 cup (70g | 2 12 oz) reduced fat cream cheese (block or spreadable)
  • 2 tablespoons powdered (icing) sugar
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry jam or jelly (or topping if you prefer)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 176C | 350F. Spray a 24-count mini muffin pan with cooking oil spray; wipe over excess with paper towel and set aside. Alternatively, use a cake pop tray or cake pop maker.
  • In a large bowl, whisk all of the dry ingredients together. Make a well in the centre and add the oil, egg, vanilla and milk. Whisk the batter until smooth and lump free.
  • Spoon the batter (about 2 teaspoons) into each muffin hole, filling to to ¾ full. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until they are golden in colour and a toothpick inserted into the centre of a donut comes out clean. Allow them to cool for 5 minutes. While they're still warm, gently roll each donut hole into the sugar until evenly coated.
  • While the donuts are baking, make the cheesecake filling. Combine the cream cheese together in a small bowl with the sugar. Beat until smooth and combined. Add the strawberry jam,jelly or topping and mix through slowly until creating an almost marble/swirl effect (if using jam, make sure any bigger fruit pieces are removed before using, or they will get jammed in the nozzle).
  • Fill a piping bag with the cheesecake filling, and using a narrow nozzle, fill each donut with the strawberry cheesecake until they puff up and expand (not too much or the donuts will overflow).
