Oreo Donuts

I made these sweets for my sweet friend Chantal’s bridal shower this morning.  They were easy to make and delicious, super chocolaty!

donuts

3/4 cup flour

1/3 cup cocoa

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1/3 cup milk

1/4 cup oil

2 teaspoons white or cider vinegar

1 teaspoon vanilla

4 Oreos, finely crushed

glaze

1 ounce cream cheese, softened

3 tablespoons milk

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 Oreos, finely crushed

1  For the donuts, preheat oven to 350, 325 for darker pans.  Grease donut pans.

2  In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

3  In a small bowl, whisk together egg, milk, oil, vinegar and vanilla.  Add wet ingredients to dry and stir to combine.  Gently fold in crushed Oreos.

4  Transfer batter to large pastry bag or large Ziploc bag and snip corner.  Pipe batter into donut pans, filling about 2/3 full.  Bake about 10 minutes or until knife inserted in donut comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes before glazing.

5 For the frosting, while donuts are cooling combine all glaze ingredients except crushed Oreos and whisk until smooth.  Dip each donut into glaze and sprinkle with crushed Oreos.

I doubled the recipe and it made 19 donuts.  You don’t need to double the glaze recipe, it makes plenty for a double batch.

I also made some heart shaped donuts:

  1. Yum, those look really cute. I’ve been really wanting to try making baked donuts for a while and these look like a great way to start! Just need to pick up a donut pan first. Thanks for the recipe idea

    • The first time I made baked donuts, I was really surprised at how good they were and not that hard to make either, I’m sure you’ll like them too! I found the heart shaped donut pan on Amazon for pretty cheap.
