Chocolate Sour Cream Donuts
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 20 large and 20 holes
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 ounce sour cream
  • ¼ cup milk or soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 cups flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • oil for frying
  • vanilla glaze, recipe follows
  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the eggs, sugar, sour cream, milk, vanilla and baking powder. Beat until combined.
  2. Add the flour and cocoa powder and beat until a loose dough is formed.
  3. Place the dough in the fridge for an hour or two until firm enough to roll.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough. I found it easiest to roll a ball of dough between your palms, then flatten slightly with a rolling pin. Cut a small circle out of the middle using a small round cookie cutter or a large star tip. (Set aside the centers to fry as donut holes.)
  5. Heat about ¾ of an inch oil over medium heat. Oil is hot enough when the dough floats right to the top.
  6. Fry for about a minute per side, then remove to drain on a plate lined with paper towel.
  7. While still hot, dip donut on both sides into vanilla glaze, then set aside to cool.
