Ingredients

For the donuts:

  • 1 c mochiko sweet rice flour, see notes (160g, $1.23)
  • 1 tbsp cocoa ($0.12)
  • ½ c granulated sugar (100g, $0.19)
  • 1 tsp baking powder ($0.07)
  • ¼ tsp salt ($0.01)
  • ½ c milk, see notes (118 mL, $0.09)
  • 1 egg ($0.17)
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted and cooled, see notes (28g, $0.31)
  • 1 tsp vanilla ($0.42)
  • 4-6 crushed oreos, see notes ($0.30)

For the glaze:

  • ½ c powdered sugar (65g, $0.29)
  • 1 - 2 tbsp milk, see notes ($0.01-$0.02)
  • 1 tsp vanilla ($0.42)
  • 4-6 crushed oreos, see notes ($0.30)

Instructions

For the donuts:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/177°C.
  • Dry ingredients
    In a medium bowl, whisk together the mochiko flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, cocoa, and salt.
  • Wet ingredients
    In another medium bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract until combined.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
  • Transfer the donut batter into a piping bag fitted with a large round tip. If you do not have a piping bag, you can use a spoon to scoop the batter.
  • Grease your donut pan using cooking spray or butter. Pipe or spoon the batter into each cavity, filling it all the way to the top. Push some crushed Oreos into the batter of each donut. Once each cavity is filled, you can use the back of a spoon or knife to smooth the tops.
    Note: Depending on the size of your donut pan, you may have a small amount of leftover batter. You can make an extra donut or a muffin!
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool donuts in the pan for about 5 minutes, then transfer them onto a wire rack and let them cool completely before adding the glaze.

For the glaze:

  • Crush about 4-6 Oreos and place them in a small bowl.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and 1 tbsp milk. If the glaze is too thick, add ½ tbsp of milk at a time.
  • Dip the top of a donut into the bowl with the glaze, then add crushed Oreos on top. Repeat with the remaining donuts.
  • Serve donuts at room temperature.

Notes

To store these donuts, place them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. However, they're better eaten the day that they're made. This is because as time passes, the donuts become softer and slightly soggier. If you want them to last for more than one day, I recommend storing them completely unglazed. You can rebake them at 350°F/177°C for 5-10 minutes to firm them back up, then let them cool, add the glaze, top with crushed Oreos, and serve!
Mochiko sweet rice flour: Make sure you are using mochiko, which is different than regular rice flour. 
To make these gluten-free: Use gluten-free Oreos. 
To make these dairy-free: Substitute the butter for vegan butter, milk for any alternative milk.
