Homemade Oreo Donuts

  • Author: Chef Emy



Homemade Oreo Donuts are a delightful treat that combines the classic flavors of everyone’s favorite chocolate sandwich cookie with the soft, fluffy texture of donuts. These donuts are perfect for anyone looking to bring a twist to the traditional donut by incorporating the unmistakable taste of Oreos into both the batter and the frosting. Here’s how you can make them at home:


For the Donuts:

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ¼ cup cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup buttermilk

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 6 Oreo cookies, finely crushed

For the Oreo Glaze:

  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar

  • 3-4 tablespoons milk

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 4 Oreo cookies, finely crushed (for the glaze)

  • Whole or crushed Oreos, for topping


Making the Donuts:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a donut pan well to ensure the donuts do not stick.

  • Combine Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the finely crushed Oreo cookies into the dry mixture and stir to combine.

  • Mix Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract until well combined.

  • Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring just until combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can make the donuts tough.

  • Fill the Donut Pan: Spoon the batter into a piping bag or a ziplock bag with the corner snipped off. Pipe the batter into the prepared donut pan, filling each donut well about ¾ full.

  • Bake: Place the donut pan in the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a donut comes out clean. Remove the donuts from the oven and allow them to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Preparing the Oreo Glaze:

  • Mix Ingredients: In a medium bowl, combine the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth. Adjust the consistency by adding more milk or powdered sugar as needed. The glaze should be thick but pourable.

  • Add Crushed Oreos: Stir in the finely crushed Oreo cookies into the glaze.

Glazing the Donuts:


  • Dip the Donuts: Once the donuts are completely cooled, dip the top of each donut into the Oreo glaze. Twist the donut slightly as you pull it out to ensure an even coating.

  • Add Toppings: After dipping, place the glazed donuts on a wire rack and sprinkle with additional crushed Oreos or top with whole Oreos, depending on your preference.

  • Let Set: Allow the glaze to set for a few minutes before serving.


Serving and Storage:

Serve these Homemade Oreo Donuts fresh for the best taste and texture. They’re perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as a sweet snack any time of the day. If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. For longer storage, you can refrigerate them for up to a week, though the texture is best when fresh.


Enjoy the delicious combination of soft, fluffy donuts with the rich, chocolatey flavor of Oreos in every bite. These donuts are sure to be a hit with both kids and adults alike, perfect for special occasions or as a treat to brighten any day.
