1. Hi friends! Since I love donuts and not too fond of fried desserts I ended up baking these incredibly delicious Baked Donuts! Warm and Gooey Nutella filling takes them over the top:) 


Donut batter:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter-melted
  • 2 ½ Tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla
  • 7 Tablespoons milk
Filling and Topping:
  • ¾ cup of Nutella ( 220 grams)
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter-melted
  • ¼ sugar or light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (more or less-to taste)


  • Line donut pan with plastic wrap. Transfer Nutella to a piping bag. Pipe Nutella in the center of each cavity to make the ring, then place in the freezer until completely firm. Remove Nutella rings from the pan, place on a plate and store back in the freezer until ready to assemble donuts.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Brush donut pan with melted butter then set aside.
  • In a small bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In another bowl stir together remaining melted butter and 2 ½ Tbsp. sugar. Add cinnamon, vanilla, egg, and milk and whisk just to combine. Whisk in flour mixture.
  • Transfer the mixture in piping bag. Fill donut pan with half of the batter. Take the Nutella rings from the freezer and place on top. Cover Nutella with remaining batter.
  • Bake about 13-15 minutes, or until golden brown and firm to touch.
  • Let donuts cool in the pan for 5 minutes
  • In a bowl combine cinnamon and sugar.
  • Melt 2 Tbsp. butter.
  • Brush each donut with melted butter, then dip in cinnamon sugar mixture.
