Baked Sour Cream Doughnuts

These no-fry, baked doughnuts will cure a craving for glazed, cake treats. The sour cream addition in the recipe contributes a creamy, acidic element to the sweet round pastry.

baked sour cream doughnuts
A doughnut is missing it’s center. It’s been removed and set aside, and reserved for another purpose. It once was whole, but in order for it to become what it is- something had to be removed. It’s about being content with the doughnut, despite what’s it’s lacking.

  1. Haven’t tried baked doughnuts but this looks really tempting!

    I have made a wonderful baked version of flancati, a traditional beignet-like treat my Slovenian grandma called “angel wings.” Strips of rich, sour cream pasty dough are twisted into fanciful knots and normally deep-fried, then covered in powdered sugar. I was thrilled to discover a baked version in an old ethnic cookbook. Easy to do and no special equipment needed. Link with photos is above.

  2. Need a correction, the list of ingredients says baking soda but the directions further below says baking powder. Which is correct?

  3. Your ingredients list baking soda but the instructions say baking powder. Which is it????? I am hoping to make this on Tuesday.

  4. This recipe was difficult to follow as the ingredients didn’t appear in the instructions in the same order as they did in the list. Seems like I should be smart enough to figure that out, but it really threw a wrench in the works. The donuts are OK. My glaze did not harden up at all. Won’t be making again.
