Cookies and Cream Donuts

I'm in love with my mini donut pan. It seriously makes the cutest little donuts. The donuts come out of the pan pretty easily and they are the perfect little size for eating. I love it because it makes baked donuts which makes me feel less guilty about eating donuts since they aren't fried (Although, I do love fried yeast donuts and would totally take an Automatic Mini Donut Factory if I was really rich and had room for one in my kitchen or if someone gave me one.) In the end a baked donut might not be any healthier, but I can  pretend right? I've only used my pan a couple of times. This time around I made a pinterest inspired treat. I just didn't make mine from scratch. I used a cake mix instead.

Cookies and Cream Donuts
  • 1 box devils food cake mix
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 oz Oreo Cookies
  • 2 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 425F. Mix cake mix, oil, 1 cup milk and eggs together. Chop up Oreo cookies into crumbs (I used my food processor). Reserve 1/4 cup Oreo crumbs. Mix remaining Oreo crumbs into cake mix batter.  Grease donut pan. Pour batter into a Ziploc bag. Pipe batter into donut pan wells filling 1/2 to 3/4 of the way. Bake for 6 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool on cooling rack. While donuts are cooling cream together cream cheese and powdered sugar. Mix in vanilla and milk. Dip top of cooled donuts in cream cheese glaze then lightly press in the reserved Oreo crumbs.

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
