Fluffy donuts

  • ½ cup unsweetened Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar of choice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • ¾ cup almond milk or milk
  • ¼ cup vanilla Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted

Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting w/Oreos

  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk of choice or cream optional
  • 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!
