Nutella Donuts (Bomboloni Alla Nutella) Recipe @pinch

Light and airy, these Nutella donuts are the bomb! The sweet, smooth, and creamy Nutella center is the perfect addition and adds tons of nutty and chocolate flavor. They are quite a treat. I took a basic yeast donut dough, rolled it in sugar, filled it with Nutella, and got one of the wonders in my mouth. They are so good, and any time I can sneak Nutella in something, I am going to try to make it. It is well worth the work and time. Great fillings such as custard or jelly are also yummy. These don't last long, so watch your plate!

Recipe Cuisine: Italian Recipe Category: Other Desserts Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon(s) active dry yeast
  • 2/3 cup(s) milk, at room temperature
  • 3 1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cup(s) sugar
  • 2 teaspoon(s) Kosher salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 7 tablespoon(s) butter, at room temperature, cut into 7 pieces
  • - oil for frying
  • - Nutella for filling
Intructions :
  • In the stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine the yeast and milk. Allow the yeast to dissolve, for about 1 minute. Add the flour, 1/3 cup sugar, salt, and eggs. Mix on low for about 4 minutes to develop the dough
  • Begin adding the butter, one piece at a time, and continue mixing for 5 to 6 minutes
  • Remove the dough from the bowl and tightly wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 6 \u2013 15 hours
  • Lightly flour a baking sheet. Flour your work surface and roll out the dough into a 12 inch square about a 1/2 inch thick. Using a 3 1/2 to 4-inch round biscuit cutter, cut out the donuts. (I ended up with 11 total.) Arrange the donuts on the prepared baking sheet and cover them in plastic wrap. Allow to rise in a warm spot for 2 \u2013 3 hours or until doubled in height and feel poufy and pillowy
  • When ready to fry, heat 3 inches of oil in a heavy pot to 350 degrees. Line a tray with paper towels and add the remaining 1 cup of sugar in a small bowl. Add the donuts to the hot oil, being careful not to crowd the pan, and fry on each side until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and allow to drain on the lined tray
  • When cool enough to handle, toss in the sugar to coat. Return each donut to the tray to cool completely for about 30 minutes
  • Fill a pastry bag fitted with a small round tip with Nutella. Poke a hole in the donuts equal distance between the top and bottom and squirt in about 1/3 cup of Nutella. Serve immediately.
