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!! :)
