I recently had the opportunity to cruise through the panama canal aboard the Coral Princess with Princess Cruises. I have shared a bunch of fun recipes inspired by my trip over the last few weeks. Today I am sharing what might be my favorite one!

Donuts filled with Nutella! I have a slight obsession with Nutella, so when I saw these, I had to try the. It was a good thing I did not find them until the end of the trip, or I would have eaten way more of them then I should have.

The Coral Princess has the International Cafe, which is a great coffee place that has lots of pastries in the morning, and a few sandwiches and salads later in the day. It is open 24 hours a day, so when you have a midnight latte craving, you know where to go. Or when you need a donut to enjoy while sailing through the Panama Canal, you can get it.

Nutella Donuts were something they had every morning. A crispy fried donut filled with Nutella, drizzled with a little more Nutella and topped with pistachios. The only thing that could have made it better was more filling. So when I got home I fixed that! Because I think you can never have enough Nutella.

I have been wanting to use biscuits to make donuts since we had a blog trip to Breckenridge. I am so excited when I got the chance! These Nutella Donuts came together in just minutes, they are so easy. All you have to do is open the can of biscuits, drop in hot oil, and fill with Nutella. And then try to eat just one!

I used a piping bag that I put a tip on, so I could fill the donuts easily. Sandra from A Dash of Sanity made a version of these donuts too…they are that good. If you don’t have a piping bag, head over to her nutella donut recipe and follower her method. Either way, you will get plenty of filling in there!

If you have ever wanted to try homemade donuts, but have been intimidated, try this version. The biscuits make it super easy! But you still get that great light, fluffy and fried dough a donut is known for!
