Dangerously Addictive Sour Cream Donuts with Dulce de Leche Glaze

Last weekend I decided it was time to give homemade donuts a try. I’ve baked donuts in the past but I wanted to try the real deep fried version. The good news is that they worked. The bad news is that I now know how to make donuts at home. Looks like more yoga for me!

I decided to start with a basic sour cream donut recipe and add in some cinnamon and a dulce de leche glaze. For better or for worse the recipe looked like a charm and we had a delicious breakfast of fresh donuts. I know you will love these if you try them, they are dangerously addictive and totally delicious!

Dangerously Addictive Sour Cream Donuts

adapted from Lara Ferroni

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

pinch of Kosher salt

1/3 cup superfine sugar

1/4 cup sour cream

1 large egg

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Vegetable oil for frying

Dulce de leche for glaze

1. In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon salt. Stir together and set aside.

2. In a separate bowl stir the sugar, sour cream, egg and butter until it is smooth. Then stir in the flour mixture until a dough forms. Cover the bowl and chill the dough for at least 20 minutes. Then, roll the dough out on to a lightly floured surface until it is 1/2 inch thick. Then cut it into 2 1/2 inch diameter circles with a biscuit cutter or donut cutter.

3. Fill a heavy bottomed skillet with vegetable oil and bring it to 350ºF. Drop in the dough and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the oil and drizzle it with dulce de leche. Serve.
