Fluffy donuts

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Zulka Morena Pure Cane sugar GMO, or white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 3/4 cup almond milk or milk
  • 1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons Nielsen Massey Chocolate Extract or Nielson Massey vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted

Vanilla Frosting w/Oreos

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter softened
  • 2 teaspoons Nielsen Massey vanilla extract
  • 3-4 tablespoons almond milk or milk
  • Oreo crumbles for top of donuts


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a doughnut pan and set it aside.
  • Sift the cocoa powder into a large bowl, then add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and whisk all together. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, yogurt or sour cream, and chocolate or vanilla extract. Add in the melted butter and whisk until combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently stir them together until just combined.
  • Take a large ziplock, snip an inch hole in corner and spoon the batter into the bag, then pipe the donut dough into the greased doughnut pan filling each well about 3/4 of the way full. You can also use a spoon, or a pastry bag to do this as well.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until a tester inserted comes out clean.
  • Let the doughnuts cool in the pan for about 5 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Prepare the Oreo Vanilla Frosting.

Oreo Vanilla Frosting

  • In medium bowl, use a mixer by beating the powdered sugar and butter on medium speed. Beat in vanilla, salt and milk.
  • If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar. This frosting should not not be thick, it should be a nice, smooth semi-thick creamy consistency. You can put the frosting in a ziplock bag, snipping a 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch cut in a corner and pipe frosting on top or frost with a knife.
  • Immediately sprinkle the Oreo crumbles on top, as many as you want.


Store in an air tight container at room temperature.
You could also use pre-made vanilla frosting out of the tub for these donuts if you're in a pinch or want a short-cut, but I love these donuts with this recipe!
