National Donut Day had me looking for new recipes that I could make to enjoy the day without trying to face the long lines at every donut shop. I found a recipe on Pinterest for baked Smore’s donuts and I was sold!
For the donuts: One cup milk, 3 teaspoons vinegar, six tablespoons unsalted butter, two and a half cups flour, 3 tablespoons vanilla pudding mix, half a cup of graham cracker crumbs, one teaspoon baking soda, half of a teaspoon salt, four tablespoons granulated sugar, four tablespoons brown sugar, four tablespoons honey, two large eggs, four teaspoons vanilla extract.
For the topping: 10 ounce bag of dark melting chocolate chips, four tablespoons graham cracker crumbs. For the filling: marshmallow fluff
To make: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a donut pan and set aside. In a small bowl mix together milk and vinegar and allow to curdle for about five minutes. Melt butter in another small bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, pudding mix powder, graham cracker crumbs, sugars, baking soda and salt.
Whisk the honey into the curdled milk and beat until combined, then add the eggs. Whisk until combined again. Mix together the wet and dry ingredients, adding the vanilla extract, until just combined. Don’t over mix. Spoon the batter into the donut pan and bake for about seven minutes or until lightly golden. Allow to cool on rack.
Melt chocolate according to package instructions. Cut donuts in half once cool and dip top half in melted chocolate and sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs right away. Once chocolate is set, spread marshmallow fluff on bottom half of donuts and place tops back on.
