Biting into a cream-filled donut before 9 a.m. always feels slightly illicit. Really? I can eat this rich, sugar-covered treat for breakfast and no one is going to stop me? Yes, you can.

What sets this donut apart from the rest is its filling: pumpkin and Nutella cream. You mix mascarpone and vanilla yogurt — the creamy components — with pumpkin purée, Nutella, and pumpkin pie spice.

Once the donuts are done frying, toss them in a cinnamon-sugar mixture and fill with the pumpkin-Nutella cream. Pair with a cup of coffee and you’ve got the ultimate breakfast treat.
