Delicious Sour Cream Doughnuts

There is something about a doughnut that makes everyone’s mouth water! These Sour Cream Doughnuts are going to be your new favorite!

I’ve been on the search for a good doughnut recipe for quite sometime. It’s one of those things that not many people tend to make at home and I wanted to change that.

These sour cream doughnuts are so easy and delicious that your family is going to begging for them every weekend.

Here’s what you’re going to need!

Doughnuts Ingredients

  • 2 ¼ cups cake flour, sifted, spooned, and leveled
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 8 cups vegetable oil, for frying

Glaze Ingredients​​​​​​​

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3-4 tablespoons evaporated milk

In a bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

With a mixer, beat butter and sugar until combined. Add the eggs and blend well.

Alternate adding the sour cream and flour mixture until the flour is completely incorporated. The dough will be very sticky. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour or longer.

Place dough on a lightly floured surface and dust the top with flour. Also dust the rolling pin with flour.

Using the rolling pin, roll the dough to ½ inch thickness. Using a round cookie cutter, cut dough into circles and use a smaller cutter to create the center holw. Knead any scrap pieces of dough into a mound of dough and continue rolling out and cutting the doughnuts until all of the dough is used.​​​​​​​

Heat oil in a dutch oven or deep fryer between 325 and 350 degrees.

Carefully place doughnuts in oil a few at a time. Do not crowd the oil. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side.

Remove doughnuts and place on a wire cooling rack or paper toweling.

For the glaze:

Mix all ingredients together until smooth. Add additional milk if a thinner consistency is desired.

Invert the doughnut and dip in the glaze. Place on a wire rack. Allow the glaze to run over the doughnut.​​​​​​​

I promise you, these doughnuts are OH SO GOOD!!! Seriously, you won’t be disappointed!
