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.
