  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk the water, butter and vanilla together in a jug. Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the liquid, stirring until no lumps remain. Leave to settle for 15 minutes.
  3. Transfer the batter to a piping bag. Pipe 12 doughnuts onto a plate or tray dusted with flour. Refrigerate for 5 minutes.
  4. Heat the oil in a heavy based pan or deep fat fryer. Gently lower each of the doughnuts into the oil, cooking until crisp and golden.
  5. Transfer the cooked doughnuts to a bowl filled with the sugar and cinnamon, rolling each one until evenly coated.
  6. Pop the chocolate spread into a piping bag. Poke a hole in each doughnut using a skewer and pipe the filling into the centre. Serve immediately.
