Ingredients

Donut Holes:

  • 1 cup flour (plain / all-purpose flour)
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk

Filling:

  • 1/3 cup Nutella, melted

Coating:

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
  • 1/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Spray a 24-count mini muffin tray with cooking oil spray; wipe over excess with paper towel and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk all of the dry ingredients together. Make a well in the centre and add the oil, egg, vanilla and milk. Whisk the batter until smooth and lump free.
  • Spoon the batter (about 2 teaspoons) into each muffin hole, filling to to 3/4 full. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until they are golden in colour and a toothpick inserted into the centre of a donut comes out clean. Allow them to cool for 5 minutes and transfer them onto a cooling rack.
  • Brush each donut over with a light coating of melted butter; combine the sugar and cinnamon together in a shallow bowl; toss each donut hole into the cinnamon sugar mix until evenly coated.
  • Fill a piping bag with the Nutella. Using a a narrow nozzle, fill each donut with the Nutella until they puff up and expand (not too much or the donuts will overflow).
