Okay, so I have a confession to make. I ate twelve of these. 

Twelve! Straight off the mark. 

I mean they are really itty bitty tiny, but twelve?

And they are baked, but twelve?

And they do only have 1 tbsp of butter in, but twelve?

For my birthday my I got so many foodie presents, so today when I sat down and tried to figure out what to bake, I was faced with new pans, new ingredients and new recipe books! Where do I start.

My boyfriend bought me a mini donuts pan (feel the romance?). I thought this was a good place to start.

These were so easy and quick to make. I love using Oreos and am still excited about their presence in the UK, despite the fact they’ve been around for about 5 years now!

These donuts aren’t too sweet, but have a yummy Oreo kick. They can be made more chocolaty by substituting some of the flour for cocoa powder, but I liked them as they were. 

So get on board with this mini Oreo donuts recipe.
