Homemade Oreo-stuffed Donuts

Homemade Oreo-Stuffed Donuts! Yes, I’ve already patted myself on the back guys, because it’s delicious! But then what else would you expect when there’s Oreo involved?

I’ll admit that I jumped on the Oreo train a bit late in the game, but my older brother Jeavon has been an Oreo connoisseur since birth. I remember when we were kids, and he would be the first to the pantry door every time our parents stocked up on them. Most days the rest of us wouldn’t get a single bite because of him, so I know for a fact that when he sees this post, he’ll be green with envy. \(^_^)/

Sorry brother, I wish I could ship some to you, but since that’s not possible, I’ll try my best to make more when I visit you next.  Or perhaps I should just allow him to follow this recipe and make his own. After all, it’s a really simple recipe that yields maximum enjoyment.

Remember last year when I posted my Chocolate-Filled Donuts Recipe on the blog? Well if you loved that (and I know many of you did), then you’ll thank me for this one. I used the word ‘stuffed’ for a reason, people! Every crevice of these donuts is jam-packed with Oreo to make this treat as sumptuous, and as life-altering as possible. I have no regrets.

This recipe makes enough donuts to feed you and your friends with some left-over (though I highly doubt there’ll be any left over once you take your first bite.) I made so much today, that I’ll be heading out in the morning to deliver some to my friends close-by, and I’m excited about their reactions.

So, let’s wrap up this rambling and get on with the recipe!

Homemade Oreo-Stuffed Donuts

~Ingredients~

  • 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar
  • 3 cups all purpose flour -or as needed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk (not hot, WARM)
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla flavoring
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 26 Oreo cookies
  • oil

~Directions~ (pictures below)

  • Microwave butter to soften and set it aside to cool.
  • Once cooled, in a mixing bowl, add the eggs and butter and beat them together.
  • In another container, add the dry yeast to your warm milk and mix.
  • To your egg mixture, go ahead and add the powdered sugar, salt, vanilla flavoring and the yeast mixture. Mix well.
  • Once satisfied that the ingredients are combined well, gradually add your flour into the mixture (like this: add flour, mix, add flour, mix, add flour, mix) until it turns to dough.
  • Knead the dough until it becomes stiff but soft and malleable.
  • In a clean bowl, sprinkle some flour, and place the dough into the bowl before covering with a plastic wrap. Leave it covered for one hour.
  • When you remove the plastic wrap an hour later, the dough will have doubled in size. Punch it in the center (I’m not kidding!).
  • Sprinkle flour on a clean surface where you will then begin to roll out your dough with a rolling pin. (Don’t roll it too thin, about 1 centimeter or so should do it.)
  • Now that it’s flat, it’s time to cut out round shapes into the dough. I used the top of a cup and twisted it to cut out circles in the dough.
  • Crush your Oreos in a bowl. Do NOT crush it into powder, otherwise you risk it disintegrating later on when you fry your donuts. (see photos below)
  • I added Hershey’s cream drops because I wanted an equal cookie to cream ratio, but it’s up to you if you wish to do this.
  • Place the crushed Oreos on each circle that you have cut out, pull the dough securely over them, and roll into balls.
  • Heat your oil in a pan on medium heat (we’re going to deep fry the dough, so add enough oil to do the job.)
  • Once its hot, begin to add the rolled dough one at a time.
  • When it starts to brown slightly, flip the dough to the other side and keep flipping until they turn a beautiful golden brown.
  • Remove them from the oil, and place on a napkin to absorb the excess oil.
  • Allow them to cool, then sprinkle some powdered sugar on top, and enjoy!

*Do Not expect the donuts to be crunchy on the inside. It will be nice and soft inside and out.
