sweet stuff sunday! sour cream donuts
These are super easy to make, and this recipe will make 1 dozen with a little batter left over, so you can either overfill your donut pans and the holes will close up, or just have a little extra batter at the end...
2 C all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 pinches of nutmeg (optional, but makes all the difference in flavor)
1/2 cup sunflower oil (or any vegetable oil would work, I just had this on hand)
1 C sour cream
2/3 C sugar
1 Tb water
3 C confections sugar and a brown paper bag for shaking the fresh warm donuts in when they are right out of the oven!!
Cut up 5 Tb butter and evenly distribute in the donut pan, then pop into the oven as you preheat it to 350.
in a large mixing bowl, put all of your dry ingredients in, and whisk together...
take your donut pans out of the oven and fill less than half full - if you overfill, they will just comet looking like muffins... yeah, done this before. You can spoon it in or spoon all of the dough into a large freezer bag and cut the bottom corner tip off to 'pipe' it into the pan (I learned to do this in order to feed Mr. Fantastic as well - ha!)
Now bake for 20 minutes...
Throw two at a time into your bag with confectioners sugar, and BOOM! Tasty, yummy, homemade donuts without using a deep fryer! Do any of you have donut frosting recipes you'd like to share? I want to make these again maybe with a strawberry or chocolate frosting...
I am off to braid horse manes and enjoy this beautiful milk morning before it gets too hot!
