About the bake

Our nutella doughnut recipe is for baked doughnuts, not fried. These bite-sized little treats are baked in a mini muffin tray and injected with Nutella using a star piping nozzle right at the end.

Whether you call them doughnuts or donuts- these little treasures are small enough to enjoy a few in each sitting. Bite into one and Nutella oozes out of the middle. They really are a yummy taste sensation.

If you enjoyed these nutella doughnuts, give our nutella cupcakes a try!

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 200ºc/180ºfan/Gas Mark 6. Grease a 24 hole mini muffin tin.

  2. Step 2:

    Mix together the oil and sugars until smooth, then mix in the egg.

  3. Step 3:

    Add the baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.

  4. Step 4:

    Stir in half the flour, then the milk and then the rest of the flour until you have a smooth thick batter.

  5. Step 5:

    Spoon the batter into the holes of the tray, about 1 tbsp in each.

  6. Step 6:

    Bake the doughnuts for 10 minutes. While they're cooking, melt the butter and combine the sugar and cinnamon for dusting.

  7. Step 7:

    As soon as the doughnuts are cool enough to handle, brush with the melted butter and roll in the dusting sugar.

  8. Step 8:

    Once completely cooled pipe a little Nutella into each one using a small star nozzle.
