My boyfriend loves donuts, probably more than any other food, they are his guilty pleasure. If he wakes up before me on a weekend I know he is planning on heading to our local donut shop. The donut shop near where we live is not just any donut shop, they are the type that takes a good thing to the extreme! Apple Fritters the size of your head, donuts with bacon on top, and to top it off they all have fun quirky names like the “Bill Gates” or the “Oprah.” They are delicious!
About a year ago he bought me a donut pan. I had good intentions of making him all sorts of delicious donuts, but it went in to the cupboard, and there it stayed. I finally decided it was time for me to try out the donut pan with these baked oreo donuts. Chocolate cake donuts are his favorite, and he claimed these were authentic and tasted just like oreos! These donuts only took about 10 minutes to mix up so I’m sure I will be making these quite often as a simple weekend breakfast treat
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 egg + 1 yolk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 tablespoons milk
- 1/4 teaspoon white vineagar
- 1 cup powdered sugar sifted
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 5 oreo cookies crumbled
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and coat donut pan with nonstick spray.
- In a mixing bowl add the flour, cocoa, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Whisk to combine all dry ingredients.
- Into the same bowl add sour cream, egg and egg yolk, and vanilla extract and stir until combined.
- In a glass measuring cup add milk and vinegar, the milk should curdle slightly, add this to the mixing bowl and stir until combined. The batter will be thick.
- Transfer the batter to a piping bag and fill each space in the donut pan 3/4 full.
- Bake for 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the donuts come out clean. Allow donuts to cool on a wire rack for 5-10 minutes before glazing.
- In a small bowl combine the sifted powdered sugar and milk and stir until all powdered sugar is incorporated.
- Crush Oreos in a ziploc bag to use as the topping.
- Carefully dip each donut into the glaze, allowing the excess to drip off before returning it to the wire wrack. Sprinkle the crushed oreos on top of each donut immediately after dipping, and allow the glaze to dry before serving.
