Ingredients:
  • 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • ½ cup warm milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 ½ tsp dry active yeast dissolved in ¼ cup warm water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Nutella for filling
  • Vegetable or any other neutral oil for frying

Method:
  • Mix milk, sugar and butter together and keep aside. In a large mixing bowl add half of the all purpose flour.
  • Add dissolved yeast in it and mix well.
  • Add the rest of the flour and milk mixture and mix to combine well.
  • Add egg and vanilla extract and mix.
  • The dough would be a bit sticky at this stage, but that is fine. Flour a clean board generously and take the dough out.
  • Knead the dough on the floured surface adding little flour on your hands for about 5 minutes. Try to only use as much flour needed to keep the dough from sticking to your hands and onto the surface. You don’t want the final dough to be very tight.
  • Transfer into a bowl and add a few drops of olive oil. Turn the dough around so that its coated with the oil evenly. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and set in a warm spot till the dough doubles in size. Mine took close to 4 hours.
  • Pat down and allow to rise for the second time for about 2 hours.
  • Roll out to about ½ inch thick and using a biscuit cutter cut out rounds – you should get about 10 donuts. Arrange them on a sheet and let them rise covered for another hour.
  • Deep fry on medium low for about 2 minutes on each side.
  • Cool completely on a rack.
  • Fill up a piping bag that has a regular nozzle with nutella. Insert the nozzle into the cooled doughnuts in the center of the circumference and fill it up with nutella. You can also poke a hole with a knife and add nutella with a spoon – whichever method works better for you. Dust with powdered sugar and serve.
