Copycat Krispy Kreme Doughnut Recipe and More!

1.​ Copycat Krispy Kreme Doughnut Recipe

Let’s kick things off with an obvious choice: copycat original-glazed Krispy Kreme donuts.

These babies may not taste exactly like the OG (because let’s be honest, there can only be one), but they sure are incredible.

They’re soft, fluffy, pillowy, and covered with a sweet and crackly sugar glaze on top.

With this copycat recipe, you can enjoy fresh, warm doughnuts any time you like!

I know it seems intimidating, but making donuts at home is easier than you think. 

The key to getting the perfect Krispy Kreme-style donut is to let the dough rise for at least an hour, so it gets nice and puffy. 

There’s no effort required from you on that end – you just let the dough sit for a while and wait until it doubles in size. Easy peasy.

2. Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding

It’s never happened to me, but I’ve heard rumors of people having leftover donuts.

And while I don’t understand how that’s possible, here’s a fantastic way to repurpose those stale sweets: turn them into bread pudding!

I’m pretty sure you’ve had bread pudding before. But have you had Krispy Kreme bread pudding?

It’ll absolutely blow your mind.

First of all, it’s made with Krispy Kreme donuts instead of bread. So yeah, already pretty awesome. 

But wait, it gets better.

The donuts are soaked in a rich, creamy custard, then baked to perfection. The result is a hot, gooey, melt-in-your-mouth dessert that’s borderline addictive.

Oh, and it’s drizzled with warm chocolate sauce for good measure.

3. Krispy Kreme Donut Blackberry Cobbler

I’m always on the lookout for new and exciting recipes. So when I saw this Krispy Kreme blackberry cobbler, I knew I had to try it.

And boy, am I glad I did?!

You’ll drizzle chunks of KK original-glazed donuts with a sweet blackberry sauce, cover it with cinnamon sugar, and bake until it’s bubbly.

This cobbler will make your kitchen smell like a heavenly donut factory. Seriously the aroma is just as sublime as the flavor!

It’s slightly crisp on the outside and wonderfully moist on the inside.

It’s also undeniably sweet (because, duh), but the tartness from the berries and warmth from the cinnamon provide a nice contrast.

4. Krispy Kreme Glazed Oreo Cake Doughnut

If you like cakey donuts, you’ll want to bookmark this recipe asap!

They’re so soft and fudgy, they practically melt in your mouth. And the combination of chocolate, Oreos, and vanilla glaze is simply *chef’s kiss*

But the best part is the lack of yeast. So there’s no kneading or proofing!

Just make the batter, bake, and enjoy!

5. Krispy Kreme Cake

If the donut lover in your life has a birthday coming up, you need to make them this cake!

The sponge layers are tender, moist, and perfectly sweetened with brown sugar. Meanwhile, the buttercream frosting is smooth, silky, and decadent.

Honestly, the cake itself is already impressive.

But today’s collection of recipes isn’t about simplicity! It’s about Krispy Kreme donuts.

So buy a box of your faves and stack them up on top!

Top tip: Chop jelly-filled donuts and add them to the middle of the cake. It’s a game-changer!

6. Copycat Gluten-Free Krispy Kreme Donuts

Love Krispy Kreme donuts but can’t have gluten? No problem!

With this copycat recipe, you can enjoy your favorite donuts without any of the guilt. 

These gluten-free donuts are just as light and fluffy as the OG, but they’re not as sweet. 

More importantly, they’re a lot healthier. 

7. Krispy Kreme Ice Cream Pie

Is it possible to make ice cream using Krispy Kreme donuts? Absolutely! All it takes is a bit of creativity and imagination.

But this recipe makes more than just ice cream!

It’s an over-the-top donut ice cream pie your loved ones will beg for again and again.

From the buttery Graham Cracker crust to the no-churn, donut-filled ice cream, it’s seriously indulgent.

Add some caramel or hot fudge sauce, and you’re all set.

8. Krispy Kreme Doughnut Cream Filling Recipe

If you like soft, cream-filled donuts with a light sugar coating, I’ve got just the recipe for you!

Krispy Kreme makes one helluva cream filling, and this copycat recipe is spot on.

It’s basically custard, so it’s not hard to make at all. And as a bonus, this recipe gives you two flavors: original and chocolate.

It’s perfect is freshly fried donuts, cupcakes, pies, and more. Heck, it’s incredible right out of the bowl!

9. Glazed Raspberry-Filled Donuts (Krispy Kreme)

While some argue the original glazed donut is the best, I know plenty of people who prefer Krispy Kreme’s raspberry-filled treats.

If you’re one of them, you must try this recipe.

The donuts are fluffy and pillowy, with a heavenly combination of tart raspberries and sweet glaze.

And yes, you can easily change the filling. So go ahead and use strawberry jam or even a fun fruit curd!

10. Krispy Kreme Pie

There are few things in this world as delicious as this Krispy Kreme pie. 

From the flaky crust and decadent donut filling to the rich whipped cream topping, it’s no wonder this dessert is a cult favorite. 

The next time you’re looking for something spectacularly sweet, be sure to whip up this glorious pie. Your taste buds will thank you!
