When it comes to donuts, I’ve always been a huge fan of baked donuts. They’re so soft, light, and perfect for breakfast or even dessert. Some of my favorite baked donuts are these baked chocolate donuts and these pumpkin donuts. But, I think I may have just found one of my new favorite versions with these Baked Nutella Donuts!
Now baked donuts are definitely different than fried donuts. They’re more cakey and definitely lighter, but they’re just as delicious if you ask me. Plus, they’re baked which means you can enjoy two and not feel guilty. At least, that’s what I do.
Since I really wanted the Nutella to stand out in these donuts, I mixed some into the batter and into the glaze too. The glaze is an easy combination of powdered sugar, Nutella, and some milk to thin it out just a bit. You could also just top the donuts with some Nutella and they would be just as delicious. In fact, I think that may be what I do the next time I make a batch of these. The more Nutella the better, right?
The best thing about making baked donuts is that they only take about 10 minutes to mix up and 10 more minutes to bake. You’ll want to check them around the 9 minute mark and let them bake just a bit longer if needed.
You’ll let the donuts cool for a few minutes, which is a perfect time to mix up the glaze. Once they’ve cooled a bit and are easy to handle, just dunk them into the glaze and set them aside to let the glaze harden for a few minutes.
I really couldn’t get over just how delicious these donuts turned out. If you’re a Nutella lover too, I definitely think you will agree!
