Apsel Arnold October 29, 2020 Doughnut Recipes
1 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread, such as Nutella
4 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour (see Cook's Note), plus more for dusting
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
2. Whisk 3/4 cup of the Nutella and 3 of the eggs together in a large bowl until smooth. Fold in the flour until combined. Turn the dough out onto a generously floured surface and press into a 6-by-8-inch rectangle. Use a 3-inch round cutter to stamp out 6 doughnuts, rerolling the scraps as needed. Use a 1-inch round cutter to cut a hole in the center of each round, then place doughnuts and holes onto the prepared baking sheet. Beat the remaining egg with 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl. Brush the tops of the doughnuts and holes with the egg wash.
3. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a doughnut comes out clean, about 10 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 15 minutes. Microwave the remaining 1/4 cup Nutella in a small microwave-safe bowl just to loosen it, about 30 seconds. Dip the tops of the doughnuts and holes in the Nutella and swirl to completely coat. Place back, coated-sides up, onto the wire rack and let sit until set, about 15 minutes.
- When measuring flour, we spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off excess. (Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.)
