Years ago I bought myself a few kitchen gadgets.
An immersion blender that's really handy to have.
A small food processor that I use almost daily.
A non stick waffle baker/maker iron machine.
And an electric donut baking kitchen gadget
that honestly I think I used once, and then
stowed it in the back of the pantry cabinet.
Today I found a reason to pull that donut baker out
and the reason is a store bought jar of Nutella.
Here is a recipe for making baked Nutella donuts.
Baking spray for cooking surface
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup Nutella spread
1/2 cup shredded coconut, toasted
Into a large bowl, sift together the flour,
white granulated sugar, baking powder and salt.
In a small bowl, whisk together the beaten egg,
milk, melted butter and vanilla extract.
Stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients.
Combine in the Nutella spread to taste.
Spray donut machine holes with cooking spray.
Preheat donut machine baking gadget until that little
light goes off and then you can fill the holes with batter.
Cook or let bake until donuts are baked, about 4 minutes.
Remove donuts to cool before frosting them.
For topping, frost doughnuts with remaining Nutella.
Sprinkle with toasted coconut
