Easy baked sour cream donuts! A slightly dense, sweetened baked donut, with a simple glaze! Low fat, too! You won’t feel guilty, eating them.
Baked Sour Cream Donuts. Please…
Our 6 year old son, Landon, couldn’t get enough of these! I made these in my donut maker, and in a donut pan. Both ways work fine. I was able to get 16 smaller donuts, from the donut maker. Or, 8 regular donuts in the donut pan. This is just a quick recipe, to use up that sour cream. (Best, when eaten the same day. Still good the next day, the glaze will absorb into donut.)
When we came home from school, Landon’s eyes lit up! He asked, if he could have one for a snack. He had a hard time deciding, which one he wanted. He finally picked one out. He sat at the table with a glass of milk, and gushed about my baking skills. He was a happy little boy! He came back for seconds. (You can see a picture of him here, from my instagram account!)
I’m in love with donuts! I like yeast donuts, cake donuts, glazed ones, frosted ones, vanilla, chocolate, with sprinkles, donut holes, and so on. Something about a fresh donut, from a bakery. Yum!! I always want more.
This recipe for baked sour cream donuts, will produce a dense donut. It’s just a fun recipe, to make at home. I used a quick glaze, with powdered sugar and water. Dipped the tops of donuts into glaze, and let the glaze set.
I ate two, fresh, without any glaze! Then I had two more, with the glaze… Yum!
Easy Baked Sour Cream Donuts – Makes 16 mini donuts. Or, 8 regular donuts.
- 2 1/4 cups sifted pastry flour (all-purpose flour, can be used)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 2 Tablespoons oil
- 1 egg
- 2/3 cup sour cream ( I used regular sour cream)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup of powdered sugar
- 5 teaspoons of water
Step One: Preheat the donut maker. Or, preheat the oven to 375 F degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients: sifted flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, corn starch and sugar. Add in the wet ingredients: oil, egg, sour cream, and vanilla. Mix together until a dough forms. Use your hands to form a dough. The dough will be soft and loose. Flour the counter, roll out the dough to a high 1/4 inch thickness.
For donut maker: Use a 2 1/2 inch round cookie cutter. Cut out donuts. Re-roll any scrap pieces of dough. Spray the inside of the donut maker, with non-stick cooking spray. Use your fingers to make a hole in the centers. Place in machine, close lid. Bake for 5 minutes, or until done. (The donuts will be a light, golden color.) Place on a wired rack to cool.
For donut pan: Use a biscuit cutter, to cut out donuts. Re-roll any scrap pieces of dough. Spray the donut pan with non-stick cooking spray. You can use your fingers to make a hole in the centers, or a small circle cutter. Place in the pan, and bake for 5 – 6 minutes.(The donuts will be a light, golden color.) Place on a wired rack to cool.
EASY GLAZE: Combine the powdered sugar, and 5 teaspoons of water. Use a fork, to blend into a smooth consistency. The glaze should have a thick feel, and stick to the donuts. Dip the tops of donuts into the glaze. Place on a wired rack, over a baking sheet. Enjoy!
Get in the kitchen, and bake up some memories!
