Because while I’m sure many of you have already headed out to indulge this morning, I’m going to give you an easy and delicious way to celebrate National Donut Day every day of the year at home with a Nutella Glazed Baked Donut Recipe that you don’t want to miss! Be sure to check it out below!
What You Will Need:
For the Donuts:
1 and 1/4 Stick of Butter (softened)
1 Cup of Sugar
3 Cups of Self-Rising Flour
4 and 1/2 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
1 and 1/4 Cup of Milk
2 Tablespoons of Vanilla Extract
For the Glaze:
2 Cups of Confectioners Sugar
1/2 Cup of Nutella
2 Teaspoons of Milk
How to Make Them:
Start by creaming together your sugar and butter. Once it is mixed well, add in your eggs and continue to combine. When all ingredients are well combined, slowly alternate mixing in your flour, baking powder and salt mixture and 1 cup of your milk, keeping your dough moist.
Once your dough is ready, place in in a piping bag and cut off the tip. This makes it easier to fill your donut pans. Squeeze your dough into your greased donut plans, filling each one about 2/3 of the way full and tapping gently to help the dough settle.
Bake your doughnuts at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes or until they are light golden brown. Then remove them from the oven and transfer them to cooling racks to cool.
While your donuts are cooling, prepare your Nutella Glaze by mixing together your Confectioner’s Sugar, Nutella and 2 teaspoons of milk in your blender. Combine the ingredients until they become a liquid consistency.
Once your donuts are completely cool, dip them into your glaze, spin them gently to ensure they are cover and then lift back up, allowing any excess glaze to drip off.
Once you have glazed your donuts, set them back on your cooling rack to allow the glaze to set.
Once your glaze hardens slightly, you’re ready to serve this amazingly sweet treat!
Now, indulge and enjoy!
