Baked Mini Doughnuts with Nutella Sauce

Recently I bought a Wilton mini doughnut pan but keep forgetting to buy the buttermilk to make them. I had some left over from making buttermilk pancakes and gave them a whirl. I put too much batter in the pan first time around which resulted in them being quite large & not having a hole. I learnt from my mistake and the second batch were much more doughnut like.

I used the recipe on the back of the packaging, which I have changed from cup measurements for ease. You don't really need a doughnut pan to make these, a mini ,muffin pan would work. I also used my cake pop maker to make some doughnut balls.


Baked Mini Doughnuts with Nutella Sauce

170g Self Raising Flour
90g Caster Sugar
1 1/4 tsp Baking powder
100ml Buttermilk
1 Egg
25g Butter, melted

Sugar & Cinnamon for coating
Nutella & boiling water for sauce

  • Mix the flour, sugar and baking powder together in a large bowl
  • Lightly beat the buttermilk, egg & melted butter
  • Stir wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined
  • Spoon into the doughnut pan until half filled
  • Bake in a 220C oven for 4 minutes until springy to touch
  • Turn out and toss in sugar & cinnamon
  • Mix the Nutella with a little boiling water water until it's sauce consistency


over-sized doughnuts & doughnut balls

I bought my Wilton pan from Amazon for only £8.57 with free shipping!


  1. Ooooh these look yummy and easy to make. I am annoyed with myself though... I had a mini doughnut pan but never used it so yesterday while clearing the kitchen it got thrown out :( typical!!

  2. Wow they look amazing! I may have to go and buy a donut maker now ...

  3. they're handy little pans & don't take up too much space either!

  4. I hope you managed to retrieve it from the bin!
