Oreo Donuts

I'll just let that sink in for a few minutes...

Can it get any better then that?? I don't think so. I LOVE me some Oreos. I will find any excuse to eat or bake with them. So why not make delicious donuts that taste like an Oreo? I have no answers for that. Except that you must. make. these. Like now.

I came across this recipe and just stopped looking. No need to go on. I had to make these stat. So glad that I did.

One of my favorite things about this is that it is baked and not fried. I only make baked donuts; mainly cause I don't want the fuss of frying in hot oil with young kids around. This is an easy recipe to make on a regular basis.

My last note before we get to the goodness is that this calls for buttermilk. I very rarely have it on hand and forgot to pick some up from the store when I was out. Since it's raining I am not leaving again. I feel like this happens regularly. So I looked up buttermilk substitute and this is what google told me. I'll save you the step and just copy and past it right here...

" For each cup of buttermilk, you can use 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to measure 1 cup. Stir, then let stand for 5 minutes. You can also use 1 cup of plain yogurt or 1-3/4 teaspoons cream of tartar plus 1 cup milk. " - Google :)

I went the route of vinegar :)

Without further ado...

Oreo Donuts



  • 1 egg

  • 1/3 cup buttermilk

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted and slightly cooled

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 3/4 cup flour

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (Dutch processed or natural)

  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 6 Oreos, finely crushed


  • 1/4 cup butter, softened

  • 1/4 cup shortening

  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  • 4 tablespoons milk


  • Make the donuts: preheat oven to 350 F; grease two standard size donut pans.

  • Whisk egg, buttermilk, butter, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Add all dry ingredients except the Oreos, and whisk until well blended. Gently fold in half the crushed Oreos (reserve the rest).

  • Transfer the batter to a zip-top bag and snip an opening in the corner. Fill the wells of your donut pans about halfway. Bake for 10 minutes or until a toothpick tests clean; transfer donuts to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Make the icing: beat the butter, shortening, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla until smooth and well blended. Add milk, one tablespoon at a time, until icing is still thick but pourable. Dip cooled donuts into icing and place on a wire rack set over a baking sheet (to catch drips). Sprinkle with reserved Oreo crumbs and let set.

Happy Dunking :)
