  1. Melt the margarine, soya milk and 2 tablespoons of the sunflower oil in a small pan over a medium heat. Meanwhile, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and  half the sugar (50g) in a large bowl. Make a well in the middle, then tip in the melted mixture.
  2. Gradually bring the mixture together with a fork until it forms a wet, thick dough, then divide and roll into 20 golf-ball sized balls. 
  3. Heat the remaining sunflower oil in a medium-sized deep pan over a high heat. To test if the oil is hot enough, drop a piece of bread into the pan – if the bread floats to the surface, sizzles and turns golden, it’s about right. Reduce the heat to medium, then use a slotted spoon to carefully lower six dough balls into the hot oil. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden, cooked through and they’ve floated to the surface, turning occasionally.
  4. Whilst the doughnuts are cooking mix the remaining 50g of sugar with the cinnamon to create a cinnamon sugar.
  5. Transfer the cooked doughnuts to a double layer of kitchen paper to drain. Allow to cool for a few minutes, roll in the cinnamon sugar to coat, then place on a tray. Repeat with the remaining dough balls.
  6. Once the donuts have cooled a bite, using a small sharp knife to poke a hole in the top of your doughnuts and work it around so the Nutella has somewhere to go (being careful not to poke all the way through).
  7. Fill a pastry bag with a round tip with Chocolate Hazelnut Spread, get the tip all the way inside the doughnut and slowly fill it up.
  8. Enjoy!
