Yield: 2 dozen mini donuts


Prep Time: 10 min


Cook Time: 6 min






For the donuts:


  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 1/4 cups cake flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted



For the Nutella glaze:


  • 1/2 cup Nutella, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • Assorted sprinkles, chopped nuts or toasted coconut (optional)







Make the donuts:


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F and spray the mini donut pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Whisk in the buttermilk, vanilla, eggs and melted butter just until combined.
  3. Fill each pan cavity approximately 1/3 full (about 1/2 Tablespoon per cavity). Tap the pan on the counter to release any air bubbles and level out the batter.
  4. Bake the donuts for 4 to 6 minutes, or until the tops of the donuts spring back when touched. Let the donuts cool in the pan for 5 minutes then transfer them to a cooling wrack to cool completely while you make the Nutella glaze.



Make the Nutella glaze:


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the Nutella and heavy cream until combined. If the glaze is too thick, whisk in an additional 1 to 2 tablespoons heavy cream.
  2. Dip the tops of the donuts into the glaze, shake off any excess (or use a spoon to smooth on the glaze) and immediately sprinkle them with chopped nuts, sprinkles or other garnishes.
