½cupunsweetened Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder
1cupsugar of choice
¾cupalmond milk or milk
¼cupvanilla Greek yogurt or sour cream
Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting w/Oreos
2tablespoonsmilk of choice or creamoptional
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 ¾ 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
Mix the cream cheese and butter to a large bowl until well combined. Add the vanilla extract and mix in. Gradually add the confectioners' sugar and mix in until well combined.
If frosting is too thick, add some milk or cream, a tablespoon at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar. Frost donuts.
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!
