S’mores Donut/Doughnut Recipe

As promised on my thedonut_lady instagram (follow me plz!) below is my recipe for the delectable s’mores donuts that I made a while back.  I am so excited to make these again this summer, because who doesn’t love a s’more in the summertime? These donuts are shockingly easy to make and a whole lot of fun to eat and share with friends and family at a summer cookout.

 

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 cup of flour (I prefer whole wheat)
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup of buttermilk (see here for substitutes!)
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 squares of graham cracker (or more, depending on how you want them to look)
  • 1 cup of marshmallow creme
  • 1/2 cup of mini marshmallows
  • Optional for chocolate drizzle: 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips or unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, 2 tbsp of milk

Directions:

Donuts

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease donut pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix:
    • 1 cup of flour (I prefer whole wheat)
    • 1/4 cup of sugar
    • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
    • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  3. In a separate small bowl, mix together:
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 cup of buttermilk
    • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
    • 1 tsp vanilla
  4. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients (do not over mix)
  5. Fill dough into donut pan (see here for tips)
  6. Bake for 11-14 minutes or until they bounce back when touched
  7. Let donuts cool for 10 minutes or so before topping

Marshmallow Glaze/Toppings

  1. Heat 1 cup of marshmallow creme in the microwave for 30 seconds (it will puff up, that’s normal, don’t worry!)
  2. Dip the tops of the donuts in the heated marshmallow creme
  3. Sprinkle with crushed graham cracker and a few mini marshmallows
  4. Either torch (if you have one) the tops to give them a crisp look OR line them on a baking sheet and broil for a few minutes!

The chocolate drizzle on top is not necessary at all, but if you’re like me, you’d want chocolate drizzle on everything. Here’s how to make it:

  1. In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips OR unsweetened cocoa powder.
  2. 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  3. 2 tbsp of milk
  4. Add any of the above ingredients to make it thinner or thicker depending on your liking.

ENJOY!
