How to Make Chocolate-Filled Donuts

  1. For the donuts:

    Add the flour, baking powder, dry yeast, eggs, lemon zest to taste, milk, and sugar to your mixer.

  2. While mixing, add the vegetable oil, too. Mix until you have a dough. Let it rise for 35 minutes.
  3. For the filling:

    Add the chocolate chips to a heat-proof bowl. Bring a halfway water-filled medium-sized pot to a boil.

  4. Place the chocolate bowl on top and add the coconut oil. Stir using a spatula until it melts, then remove the bowl from heat.
  5. Transfer the white chocolate to a heat-proof bowl and place it on the same boiling water pot. Stir until it melts then remove from heat.
  6. Add the Nutella to the dark chocolate bowl and mix them.
  7. For the donuts:

    Dust the work surface with flour. Flatten the dough using your hands then the rolling pin.

  8. Cut circles from the flattened dough using a 4-5 inch cookie cutter. Cut an even number. We’ve got ten of them.
  9. For each of the 5 dough circles add one tablespoon of Nutella-chocolate or white chocolate cream. Cover each chocolate-topped disc with an empty one, then join their edges by pressing.
  10. Place the donuts on a parchment paper-lined tray and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  11. Fill a deep-fryer pan halfway with oil and heat it over medium heat. Fry the donuts on both sides until golden brown. Fry them 2 or 3 at a time.
  12. Remove and drain them on paper towels. Serve them sprinkled with powdered sugar. Optionally, you can drizzle them with Nutella-chocolate cream and melted white chocolate.
