Oreos are a staple in many people’s homes—and who can blame anyone? They’re delicious, crunchy and sweet cookies that just go so perfectly with a cold glass of milk. For many it’s a nostalgic experience, too. This Oreo Doughnut recipe brings together two beloved desserts to form one amazing confection.

These doughnuts have a cakey, chocolatey texture that will melt in your mouth—there’s even Oreos baked right into the batter! Your taste buds will love the hint of cookie crumble that tops the creamy vanilla glaze that resembles the middle of an Oreo. Give these doughnuts a try, and you might just love them more than the classic cookie!

Ingredients:

For the doughnuts

  • ¾ cup flour
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • ⅓ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar, white or cider
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 Oreos, crushed finely
  • Donut pan

For the frosting

  • 1 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Oreos, crushed finely, for sprinkling

Directions:

For the doughnuts

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a standard sized doughnut pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk egg, milk, vegetable oil, vinegar, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, whisking to combine.
  5. Gently fold in the crushed Oreos.
  6. Transfer mixture into a pastry bag or large ziplock with a hole cut into the corner.
  7. Pipe batter into donut molds, filling ⅔ of the way up the molds.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the donut comes out clean.
  9. Allow to cool 10 minutes before frosting

For the frosting 

  1. While the donuts are cooling, make the frosting.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, whisking until smooth.
  3. The consistency should be thick but still thin enough to form ribbons when you scoop it from the bowl and back down.
  4. Dip each donut into the frosting and top with more crushed Oreos. Enjoy!
