Nutella stuffed baked Doughnuts


My all-time problem with doughnuts was always that after eating only one my stomach felt uncomfortably full. Okay, my stomach is more sensitive than the normal but still... The oil, sugar and yeasty dough are not our bodies' best friends :) They make me feel heavy and sick. That's why I always tried to avoid eating them. But ever since I came upon the recipe which bakes the small puffs instead of frying, it changed my life :) Today I filled them with nutella and some strawberry jam. There are some I coated with cinnamon sugar (my favorite) and some I put sugar glaze on. 


I used exactly the same recipe I already posted on my blog. Check it out here! -> Cinnamon Coated Baked Doughnuts

For the Nutella stuffed Doughnuts

Bake doughnuts that don't have a hole in the middle. So when they are baked, poke them all the way to the other end. I used a chop stick to do that :) Fill a pastry bag with 3 Tbsp nutella and fill the center of the doughnuts. 

Do the same method to fill your doughnuts with jelly or jam. 



For the Sugar Glazed Doughnuts

1/8 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup powdered sugar

Heat the milk with the vanilla over low heat. Then mix the sugar in it. Stir it until it is incorporated and you have a white glaze. Coat the already cooled doughnuts in the glaze. Wait 5 minutes before serving. 


They taste exactly like Krispy Kreme doughnuts! Okay, a healthy version of them :) I love the fact that I can eat 3 small ones and don't get the feeling that I'm about to die while digesting :D
Hope you'll like them as much as we did!! :)

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :) It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :) I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ulti

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that

Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Today I woke up and had the urge to bake something. At first, I was very VERY intrigued by a wonderful brownie recipe but then I came to my senses...that no, today is Wednesday! And brownies don't happen on Wednesdays around here. So I scolded myself for even thinking about it and swore that I will work out something vigorous instead :) But the scorching desire to bake something was still there! Ahhh! What to do now? I had a bag of unsalted roasted peanuts in the pantry so first let's make some peanut butter! That's healthy. And easy. Way too easy, I needed something more. So when I have peanut butter, let's make cookies with it!! Right??? Such a lovely idea!  I was looking through a couple PB cookie recipes and I originally wanted a no-flour kind but when I saw the amount of sugar each had... I was like no way am I gonna add 1 cup sugar to 1 cup PB. Let alone, I didn't even have 1 whole cup of PB.  You really learn to appreciate things when you don'
