For the Nutella glaze (optional):


  • Heat oven to 325.
  • Spray your donut pans with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients; flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In small bowl, whisk together the rest of the ingredients - milk, sugar, egg, butter, Nutella, and vanilla - until smooth.
  • Add wet mixture to the dry mixture, whisking together until well-blended.
  • Using a spoon (a teaspoon would probably be best), fill each doughnut well approximately 2/3-3/4 full (approximately 2-3 teaspoonfuls each).
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until doughnuts spring back when pressed.
  • Flip onto a baking rack to cool.
  • If no icing is made, you can dust with confectioner’s sugar.

For the Nutella glaze (optional)

  • Blend confectioners’ sugar, hot water and extract in a small bowl.
  • Spoon in the Nutella and mix until well-blended.
  • Dip cooled doughnuts in the glaze, twirling them around in a circle once before lifting, continually turning until it stops dripping.
  • Set out onto a rack to dry.
