Cookie and cream baked doughnuts


After being away from blogging for almost a year I am so glad to be back. Making celebration cakes for a living was not only repetitive but people can be rude and I began to resent it. However now I'm back baking for myself I am so happy, my passion is back and I couldn't wait to get started.



I wanted to come back with a bang and I think these cookie and cream baked doughnuts did that. Deliciously moist chocolate and Oreo baked doughnuts, stuffed with an Oreo cream and topped with vanilla icing and crushed Oreo. Welcome to Doughnut heaven!


Box them up and give them to a doughnut fan as a gift, or just eat them for yourself.

8. For the cream filling whisk your cream until thick, then fold in your crushed Oreo and icing sugar.
9. Place a small amount of cream into the center of the doughnut hole, if you used a muffin tray make a hole and fill.
