Tempting Tuesdays ~ Old Fashion Sour Cream Donuts

This is the final recipe in my breakfast series and no ordinary donut would do. I found this delicious delicacy on Tastes Better From Scratch.



2 1/4 cups cake flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp butter, room temperature
2 large egg yolks
1/2 cup sour cream
Canola oil, for frying


3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp corn syrup
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup hot water

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Set aside.

Beat butter and sugar together until well combined, should be a sandy texture.

Add yolks and mix until blended.

Add flour mixture and sour cream in three stages, sour cream then flour, sour cream then flour, sour cream then flour. Combine until dough forms.

Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for one hour.

Right before dough is done chilling, combine all ingredients for glaze and mix well.

Remove the dough from plastic wrap onto floured surface. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out with donut cutter or circle cutter. I got six the first time, then rolled out the scraps to eventually get six more.

VERY IMPORTANT: Heat oil to 325 degrees F. Do not get oil too hot, because the outside will burn and inside will be raw. Use your best judgement on how long to cook. Original recipe recommends 2 minutes on each side. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to soak up grease.

Place on wire cooling rack to cool. Once cool, dip each side in glaze then set on rack for 15-20 minutes to let the glaze set.

Enjoy immediately!
