A donut with no hole

Not everything turns out as it should but sometimes it is better that way. The original name - krapfen - is a doughnut with no hole and it is wonderful. Because it is soft, hot and filled with Nutella®.

A few hours to invest, but the result will make you happy and more than satisfied: a mouthwatering, traditional recipe is going to change your idea of pastry.
250 g bread flour (Manitoba)
10 g fresh yeast
1 egg
1 egg yolk
4 g salt
50 g soft butter
35 g granulated sugar
100 ml whole milk
½ vanilla pod
Grated lemon zest
150 g Nutella® (15g portion per person)

Icing sugar to decorate


Step 1
  • Heat the milk and dissolve in the fresh yeast
  • Add 1 egg, 1 egg yolk and whisk.
Step 2
  • Place the flour, the granulated sugar and the scraped vanilla seed from the pod on a wooden cutting board.
  • Put the milk and egg mixture in the center and knead until the dough is smooth.
  • Add soft butter, salt and grated lemon zest
Step 3
  • Put the dough in a bowl, cover and let rise for 2 hours. Roll dough in your palms, making 10 40g balls.
  • Place on a baking tray covered with parchment paper. When they rise and double in size, fry in oil at 175° C.
  • Take the doughnuts out from the oil & let them cool down on absorbent paper for few minutes.
Step 4
  • Fill each doughnut with 15g of Nutella® with the help of a piping bag.
