JAM DOUGHNUT CUPCAKES

 I LOVE doughnuts but haven't been able to make them lately because my thermometer broke and I couldn't check the temperature so I thought I would think up a new way of making them, and I came up with these! They taste jammy and sweet and super scrummy!! The whole family loved them and they are so easy and quick to make. I've been baking a lot less this week because I have so much going on with getting my brother ready for university and making cakes for other people, but today I decided to treat myself and bake for me.
