Directions :

Mix most of the wet ingredients. In a large bowl, add the sugars and butter. Mix with an electric hand mixer to combine, then add the egg yolks and vanilla. Mix again.

Sift the dry ingredients. Sift the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg together in another bowl.

Combine. In an alternating pattern, add 1/3 of the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and work them together with a spatula. Then add 1/3 of the sour cream, and mix. Another 1/3 of the flour mixture, mix, 1/3 of the sour cream, mix, and so on until they are all incorporated.

Chill and roll out the dough. Wrap the donut dough tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour, or until firm. Then dust the work surface with flour and roll the dough out until it is about 1/2-inch thick.

Cut out the donuts. Dip the donut cutter or 2 different-sized biscuit cutters in flour and then cut out the donuts. Roll out the dough scraps and cut out more, repeating until you have 12 donuts.

Prep the frying oil. Put about 2 inches of corn oil in the bottom of a heavy-bottomed pot. Heat the oil to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Check that the temp stays at the right heat with a thermometer.

Fry the old fashioned sour cream donuts. Carefully fry the donuts in batches, about 2 minutes per side, until they are a golden brown. Place them on a paper towel-lined plate when done to get rid of excess oil.

Pro Tip: Make sure you take the time to chill the dough, otherwise it is too sticky to roll out and it won’t hold its shape when you cut the donuts out.

Glaze the donuts. Mix the ingredients for the glaze together in a bowl and dip each donut into it before laying them on a cooling rack. Allow the glaze to set before serving. Try to glaze them while they are still slightly warm.

Recipe Tips

Dust the donut or biscuit cutter with flour- This will keep the cutter from sticking to the dough, pulling it out of shape.

Adding 1/3 of dry ingredients and 1/3 of sour cream at a time- This will help the ingredients incorporate fully, giving you smooth dough.

Use an instant-read thermometer- You want to keep the oil temperature within the right range, so this will help you monitor it.

Glaze them while they’re still warm- The glaze will hold better if the temperature of the donut keeps it from going solid too soon.

Add-ins and Substitutions

Substitute the glaze- Instead of a vanilla glaze, use a chocolate, caramel, or maple glaze on these Old Fashioned Sour Cream Donuts.

Add sprinkles- Top these donuts with sprinkles or colorful sugar for a holiday theme.

Bake them- If you are using donut pans, you can place these donuts in a 350-degree-oven for 12-16 minutes until they are springy and golden brown.

Make them gluten-free- You can adjust this recipe by substituting rice flour and tapioca starch for the all-purpose flour to make these without gluten.

Enjoy !!!
