This summer, bake up your own doughnuts at home with these deceptively easy S'mores Doughnuts. With the cakey texture in the doughnut itself, the fluffy marshmallow topping gives a nice creamy contrast that will remind you of your traditional go-to camping dessert.
Your sweet tooth won't be able to get enough of this classic marshmallow, chocolate and graham cookie combo - you can even try swapping out other toppings like Oreo cookie crumbs rather than graham.
For the doughnuts:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon plain yogurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
For the icing:
- 1 cup marshmallow fluff
- 2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs
To make the doughnuts, lightly grease a 6-hole doughnut tin and preheat oven to 350°F.
Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt into a medium bowl.
In another medium bowl whisk together the butter, yogurt, vanilla, egg, and sugars.
Make a hole in the flour mixture and pour the butter mixture into the hole. Using a rubber spatula, gently stir everything together until there are no more streaks of flour. Mixture will be thick.
Scoop the batter into a piping bag or Ziploc bag and snip a small hole in the bottom corner.
Squeeze the batter evenly among prepared doughnut tin.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until doughnuts spring back when touched. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
For the frosting, place marshmallow fluff in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in microwave until melted and smooth, about 40 seconds. Be careful not to let marshmallow puff over the sides of the bowl when heated.
Place graham cracker crumbs in a shallow dish.
Dip one flat side of each doughnut into marshmallow fluff or use a butter knife to carefully top the doughnuts. Place doughnuts on a cooling rack on top of a plate or towel to catch drips. Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs.
Serve and enjoy!
