I've got a new baked donut recipe to share! Evidently I only make donuts when we have play dates because I haven't made them since the last time we had friends over. I liked our last Cinnamon Sugar Donut recipe but thought I'd try a different one this time.
I LOVE making donuts for play dates since they are easy and a super fun snack with kids. The weather has been amazing here lately (ah Arizona winters) so we ate them outside while the kids played.
Sour Cream Donuts
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Pinch of nutmeg
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus more for coating the doughnuts
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare donut pan by greasing it with coconut oil. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and pinch of nutmeg. Set the dry ingredients aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sour cream, granulated sugar, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and the egg. Switch to a spatula and stir in the dry ingredients. Fill a plastic storage bag (or a fancy icing bag) with the batter and pipe it evenly among the prepared donut pan. The batter should reach about half way up the inside of each circle. Bake the donuts for 12–16 minutes until the top edges begin to turn golden brown. Remove the donut pan from the oven and let the donuts cool for about 5 minutes before tossing them in the extra granulated sugar.
I found that this recipe made 6 very full (and delicious) donuts with extra batter to spare so I made a bonus heart shaped donut too.
The girls loved the donuts!
