How to Make Oreo Donuts 

Ingredients:

Instructions: 

Prepare donut molds with cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F

When adding crushed Oreo cookies to the donut batter, crush them finely to distribute the flavor evenly throughout the donuts. You can use a food processor or place the cookies in a sealed plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin.

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, salt and baking powder. In a separate bowl, whisk the wet ingredients: milk, eggs, vanilla, and oil. Add the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

Roughly chop 7 Oreo cookies and fold them to the donut batter until fully combined.

Transfer the batter to a piping bag or a zip-top bag with a corner snipped off (you can also spoon it in). 

Pipe the batter evenly into the prepared donut pan, filling each well about 2/3 full.

Bake the delicious donuts for 10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow donuts to cool in the pan for 3-4 minutes, then remove them and allow them to continue to cool on a wire rack.

Dip the top of each cooled donut into the glaze, allowing any excess to drip off. Place the glazed donuts back on the wire rack.

Sprinkle tops of the donuts with Oreo crumbs, pressing slightly so crumbs stick.

Allow the glaze to set for about 15-20 minutes before serving your oreo doughnuts.

Homemade donuts are best when enjoyed fresh, so serve them shortly after glazing for the best taste and texture.

Oreo Donut FAQs

Do baked donuts taste different?

Baked donuts do not taste the same as fried donuts. Baked donuts have a cake-like texture, with a soft and slightly denser consistency. In contrast, fried donuts are known for their crispy, golden-brown exterior and a soft, airy interior, offering a richer and more indulgent flavor due to the frying process. 

How should I store Oreo donuts?

Store Oreo donuts in an airtight container at room temperature for 1-2 days. To extend their freshness, refrigerate them for up to 4-5 days. If you want to store them longer, you can freeze Oreo donuts for up to 2-3 months in an airtight container or freezer-safe bag.

How can I prevent my Oreo donuts from becoming too dry?  

To prevent dryness, be careful not to overbake the donuts. Follow the recommended baking time in your recipe, and use a toothpick to check for doneness. It should come out clean or with just a few crumbs. Additionally, ensure that you don’t overmix the batter, as overmixing can lead to a denser texture.

Is it better to bake or fry doughnuts?

The choice between baking and frying donuts comes down to personal preference and dietary considerations. A baked donut recipe is a healthier option with fewer calories and less fat. They are also easier to make at home and involve less mess. On the other hand, fried donuts offer a classic, indulgent experience with a crispy exterior and rich flavor but come with a higher calorie and fat content and a more complex cooking process involving hot oil.
