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.

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.

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.
