The Best Baked Oreo Doughnuts

Did someone say THE BEST baked Oreo doughnuts?! 🤤

Continuing my love of my new doughnut pan, of course. Today I’m sharing with you my recipe for THE BEST baked oreo doughnuts.

Following on from all the love received for my Biscoff doughnuts I wanted to share more with you. Enter another one of my recently discovered favourites: oreo doughnuts!

Beautifully soft cakey doughnuts topped with a slightly tangy glaze. Yum! I actually prefer these of the two doughnuts recipes I’ve shared with you. And you KNOW I adore Biscoff. But the deep chocolate of Oreos coupled with smooth and tangy cream cheese in this doughnut has me totally hooked!

And what’s even better, is these take minutes to put together! So no need to spend hours in the kitchen!

I prefer piping my mix into my pans, just because I find it quicker and less messy. You could absolutely spoon it in too, don’t worry! If you are looking for strong piping bags, check out my recommendation below. Even my kids have used these when baking and decorating and everyone has survived!

Be warned though: these have now made me crave cakey doughnuts far more than their bready cousins, even though I do have a soft spot for filled doughnuts too!

These little beauties are quickly becoming one of my family’s favourite tea time treats, and it’s easy to see why! Baked doughnuts are so versatile with changing up flavours and the looks, so they’re brilliant for quick bakes that are truly a little treat!

My recipe for THE BEST baked oreo donuts.


  • For the donuts
  • 120 g (¾ cup) plain (all purpose) flour

  • 30 g (¼ cup) cocoa powder

  • 65 g (¼ cup+1 tbsp) soft light brown sugar

  • ½ tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 1 lge egg

  • 80 ml (¼ cup+1 tbsp) milk

  • 60 g (¼ cup) unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 tsp vinegar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 4 oreos, crushed

  • For the glaze
  • 30 g cream cheese, at room temp

  • 200 g (1¼ cups+2 tbsp) icing (powdered) sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2-3 tbsp milk

  • 1-2 oreos, for topping (optional)


  • Grease your donut pan with butter and set aside. Preheat your oven to 180C/350F.
  • In a large bowl, sift and mix together flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, bicarb and salt. In a separate bowl, mix milk and egg. Then whilst whisking, drizzle in the melted butter. Whisk in the vanilla and vinegar.
  • Pour your wet ingredients into your dry, then gently stir together. Tip in the crushed biscuits and stir again to mix thoroughly.
  • Spoon or pipe your mixture into your prepared donut pan and bake for 8-10 minutes until your donuts are baked and a skewer inserted comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for a couple of minutes, then gently ease out and cool on a cooling rack.
  • To make the glaze, tip the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and 2tbsp milk in your bowl and mix until smooth. Add more milk, if needed, to achieve your desired consistency. Dip the top of each donut into the glaze, then place back on the cooling rack. Sprinkle on the biscuit crumbs, if using. Enjoy!

  • I find it easier to pipe my mixture into my pan, for neater doughnuts, but spooning in works too if you haven’t any piping bags.
  • Make sure your donuts are cool before you ice them, or the glaze will melt and run off!
  • I like my glaze really thick, so you get a decent topping on each donut. If you prefer a thinner, lighter covering, just add a bit more milk 🙂
