 3-Ingredient Nutella Doughnuts

Can you believe it’s the weekend already? It feels like a Tuesday. At least to me it does. Does it feel like any other day of the week but Friday to you? Weird. Stupid 4th of July messing me up. Why do we even have to celebrate our independence anyways? Good grief.

**I don’t like change.

Anyways, since it’s the weekend {allegedly}, I thought you all could use some shugah. I don’t know about you, but I use the weekends for two things and two things only: my long run and eating treats I’ve been dreaming about all week. When I post any sweet/buttery/cheesy/non-vegetable recipe, typically it’s been made Saturday or Sunday. I’d say 94% of the time, that’s 100% the truth.

I made these on a Saturday if I’m not mistaken. Although, it could have been a Thursday since all my days are jacked up. I needed a 4th treat and didn’t have a whole lot to work with. So, I put my thinking cap on and came up with these beauties. Surely you have ALL this stuff on hand for you to make these too. Super yummy and so ridiculously easy that my 3 year old could do these on her own. I kid you not. Nutella, eggs, flour. Bowl. Stir. Bake. Top with more nutella.

So easy that I didn’t take step by step photos. Or my laziness has reached all new highs. Or is that lows?

Moral of the story: I like nutella. I like doughnuts. I like nutella and doughnuts together. I am lazy.

I’m so philosophical.

    Hi Lauren! I can’t stop making these. I changed up the recipe just a little bit, but they’re still delicious! http://www.alittlenosh.net/2012/07/baked-nutella-donuts/

    do you think this recipe would work in a mini cupcake maker? I don’t have any interest in turning on the oven in this heat – but wondered if maybe making cupcake bites with this would be just as good. hmmmm…..

    Made these today:) SSSOOOOOO GOOOODDDDD!!!! I seriously dont even know how to describe the yummyness. And so simple!! The only thing I had to adjust was to turn them into cupcakes because I dont have a doughnut pan. This is the first thing I’ve tried from your website since I only just recently discovered it and I cant wait to try more!

  7. Jenn and Seth (@HomeSkilletCook)

    i am definitely making this soon! i love nutella and i love that these only need 3 ingredients!

  8. hailey

    the fact that these only take 3 ingredients completely blows my mind! Once this heat wave breaks i am definitely whipping out the nutella and doughnut pan! thanks 😀

  9. From Valerie's Kitchen

    The mid-week holiday has me in a confused state as well. The recovery has been long and painful. I hoping to be back to normal by tomorrow! I can’t believe these have only 3 ingredients. Craziness! They look fab.

  10. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life

    I cannot believe that is all there is to these awesome looking donuts!!! And I have everything on hand to make them…yay!!!! I love donuts and nutella too:-) Very excited about these!!!

  11. Julie @ Table for Two

    3 ingredients? Awesome!! How do they rise without baking soda or powder, though? Just curious 🙂

  12. Lauren @ Part Time House Wife

    I work part-time midnight 12 hour shifts at a hospital… I go in and its one day.. I come home its another… then I’m off for a few and I literally couldn’t tell you what day of the week it was. If I didn’t know I had a blog post to write Mon, Wed, & Friday I would think every day was sunday.

    Amazing doughnuts. i mean can we get any better than chocolate/nutella glazed chocolate douhnuts

  13. sally @ sally's baking addiction

    Cannot believe there are only 3 ingredients in these babies – all of which I have on hand. UNREAL. I just made donuts yesterday. We must be on the same wavelength. 🙂

  14. Amanda

    I don’t own a doughnut pan–could these be made in a muffin or cakelet pan instead with the same baking time?

  15. Meghan @ After the Ivy League

    Oh. My. God. Nutella Heaven. Saving this recipe for a day when it’s cool enough to turn on my oven!!
