Gourdough’s Copycat Peanut Butter & Jelly Doughnut

I’m so excited to share my Gourdough’s Copycat Peanut Butter & Jelly Doughnut along with a fun doughnut blog hop and I included a little giveaway at the bottom of my post for you! Here is my doughnut: Gourdoughs copycat~peanut butter and jelly doughnut www.KristenDuke.com #doughnut #donut #peanutbutter A few weeks ago, I attended a food blogging conference in Austin, Texas, and met some amazing bloggers. Most of them share JUST food, while some others share a little bit of everything beyond food as well. All of them have fabulous blogs with beautiful pictures. While there, we sampled the local cuisine, and one little bakery swept us all away. The place is called Gourdough’s, and they have created some one-of-a-kind doughnuts that surpassed our expectations. I got to sample a bunch of Gourdough’s creations courtesy of PicMonkey at our PJ Party. A small group of us that met up at the conference thought it would be fun to each pick a doughnut from Gourdough’s to recreate and share a copycat recipe and have a little BLOG HOP. Here are the amazing copycat recreations: Gourdoughs Doughnuts Copcat Recipes To visit each of these sites and view their recipes, join the blog hop!

Now, for the doughnut I recreated–the Peanut Butter and Jelly doughnut. It’s pretty simple, and oh so delicious! I served a tower full of them at my daughters breakfast in PJ’s birthday party. It was actually my VERY first time making homemade doughnuts! It was fun to do, and as I worked on the process, I shared an instagram picture, and so many people asked about the cutter I was using and pans, so I thought I’d offer a little giveaway of the tools I used and ingredients to make the peanut butter and jelly doughnuts. So keep scrolling down to enter. You can really use any ‘ole doughnut recipe as the base. doughnut cutter There is something about the perfectly cut circles in the dough that makes my heart happy! It was such a fun  process! making doughnutsdoughnuts risingpeanut butter and jelly doughnuts recipejelly filled peanut butter doughnuts

  23. Love the PB&J, I have never had it in a doughnut! However, I think PBJ sandwich’s should be a part of a standard adult meal, why is that just for kids? No fair.
    Julianne @ Beyond Frosting recently posted..Piña Colada Cupcake ShakeMy Profile

  24. I WANT THAT!!

  25. It was my first time making doughnuts too! It looks like you had great success. I’m loving the pb & J combo!
    It took me a few tries but in the end I got great results and a doughnut recipe that worked perfectly. Although maybe that is a bad thing because now I see myself making doughnuts a lot more often.

    Best,
    Kristen

  31. Kristen,
    These look amazing! What a fun recipe, my family would love these! Can’t wait to attend BlogHer Food in the future! :)

  32. This may be a silly question, but I see the awesome looking donut pans in the giveaway basket, but not used in the recipe. SO… at what step would you use those pans? Or would you use a different recipe entirely?

    please help :))

    BTW—-these look AHHHHHH-mazing!

    • Kristen Duke says:

      You are right, those are baking pans, and I did not bake the doughnuts for this recipe, it’s to give options for any doughnut making!

  33. Have you ever had Peanut Butter and Jelly on Ritz Crackers?! Yum!
