Yield: 12 doughnuts and holes

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: The little bit of nutmeg combined with the sour cream and sweet glaze makes these doughnuts taste just like the ones at your favorite bakery, if not better!
Texture: Slightly crunchy on the outside, cakey and soft on the inside. All the little cracks in these doughnuts just soak up the shiny, crackled glaze.
Ease: There’s no yeast in this recipe so you can have these doughnuts IN YOUR MOUTH in a little more than an hour from start to finish.
Pros: I think the pros are inherently implied, they’re doughnuts!
Cons: Deep fried sugary goodness ain’t too good for your diet.
Would I make this again? Yes, whenever I’m craving these old-fashioned cake doughnuts I’ll whip this recipe out.

I have huge sweet tooth cravings on the regular. Can you relate?

Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Doughnuts - just like at your favorite bakery!! No yeast!

When I get a doughnut craving, it’s intense. A lot of doughnut shops make pretty bland and greasy doughnuts that leave a weird residue on your tongue, at least that’s been my experience.

There’s a few local shops that I LOVE, but I rarely have an excuse to make a trip to one of them. This recipe honestly takes about the same amount of time that it takes to drive across town to my favorite bakery, so it’s kind of perfect. Plus, if you only eat doughnuts when you make them from scratch, you can’t really go overboard right? That’s my logic at least.

Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Doughnuts - just like at your favorite bakery!! No yeast!

These Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Doughnuts are just like the old-fashioned cake doughnuts from the bakery. They’re kind of crunchy and cracked on the outside, making those nooks just purrrrrfect for soaking up the thick, shiny, crackled glaze. We completely dunk the doughnuts in that glaze in the recipe, and it’s amazing. The inside is soft and cakey with a more firm bite than yeast doughnuts. Plus you can’t beat sour cream, it’s good with just about everything.

I don’t always prefer old-fashioned cake doughnuts to yeast doughnuts, but when I do this is absolutely the recipe I use. You can’t beat how much less time these take than yeast doughnuts, too.

Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Doughnuts Recipe Tips

1. Use a scale to weigh your ingredients

Using a scale is a smart idea for this recipe. Any issues I hear about the dough being too dry or sticky are likely due to inaccurate measuring! If you doughnuts aren’t as fluffy and light as you’d like, it’s due to compacting too much flour into your measuring cup. You can learn more about how to measure flour the RIGHT way here.

2. Use REAL bleached cake flour

This is a must for the recipe. Purchased cake flour will yield light and delicate doughnuts like the ones from the bakery. DIY substitutions don’t really cut it, and AP flour will not create doughnuts with that same soft texture. Also, bleached cake flour will work best. Unbleached (like King Arthur Flour) won’t absorb as much moisture and you may end up with doughnuts that crumble while frying. You can learn more about cake flour here.

3. This recipe is FRIED

Yes, you must fry this recipe. It was specifically designed to be fried and not baked, just trust me on that. USE FRESH OIL. It goes rancid quickly, often before the date on the bottle. If it has *any* unpleasant smell, don’t use it. Your doughnuts won’t taste good.

I don’t personally own an air fryer but recently had a reader message me that she had success air-frying this recipe.

How to make
Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Doughnuts

Yield: 12 doughnuts and holes
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Inactive Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours
Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Doughnuts are coated in glaze and taste just like the cakey ones at your favorite bakery! No yeast makes this recipe quicker and easier.

Ingredients

For the donuts:

  • 2 1/4 cup (255 grams) cake flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (29 grams) butter, at COOL room temperature
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup (113 grams) sour cream
  • Canola oil, for frying

For the glaze:

  • 3 1/2 cup (350 grams) powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup hot water

Directions

For the donuts:

  1. In a bowl, sift together the cake flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar together until sandy. Add the egg yolks and mix until light and thick. Add the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl in 3 additions, alternating with the sour cream, ending with the flour.

  3. Mix for 30 seconds on low speed or until the dough is smooth but slightly sticky. You want to mix enough that the dough doesn't fall apart in the oil, but not so much that it becomes tough. If the dough is unbearably sticky, add extra flour one tablespoon at a time (especially if you live in a warm & humid climate).

  4. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour, or until firm.

  5. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. Use a doughnut cutter or two differently sized biscuit cutters to cut out as many donuts as possible, dipping the cutters into flour as necessary to prevent sticking. You should get about 12 doughnuts and holes. If the dough gets too loose, sticky, or greasy at any point return to the fridge to firm before continuing. Refrigerate while you heat the oil so the dough is slightly cold when it fries.

  6. Pour 2 inches of canola oil into a heavy bottomed pot with a deep-fry thermometer attached. Heat to 325°F. Fry the doughnuts a few at a time, being careful not to overcrowd the pot. Fry on each side about 2 minutes, being careful not to let them burn. Keep an eye on the thermometer and adjust your stove heat to maintain the correct oil temperature. Let drain on a paper bag to soak up the excess grease.

For the glaze:

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl with a whisk until smooth. Immerse each doughnut into the glaze. Place on a wire rack above a sheet pan to catch any excess glaze. Let sit for 20 minutes until glaze is set. Doughnuts are best served the day they are made but may be store in an air tight container at room temperature for a few days.

Recipe Notes

Some readers have complained that 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg was too much. Nutmeg is a crucial flavor component to any doughnut, but if you don't like the taste reduce it to 1/4 teaspoon or omit it altogether.

    Just a warning to be careful when working with all that hot oil. I’m sitting here with a painful blister because some oil splashed up on my hand. Also, I had a hard time keeping the oil temperature at a consistent degree so most of them burned and were very dry. The first few that didn’t burn were okay but I didn’t like the flavor of the glaze so basically all of them went in the trash. Unfortunately it was a big waste of time and ingredients for me. I hate leaving a poor review; I’m sure all of these issues were my fault. Just be careful with the oil!

    Can i substitute corn syrup with another thing?

    • #
      Tessa — July 12, 2021 at 3:08 pm

      You can use tapioca syrup instead or just omit the corn syrup, it just helps make the glaze feel just like what’d you find at a bakery.

    neal — June 20, 2021 at 11:58 am

    these are delicious. will be making more. just one question though…I followed the recipe exactly and found using a 3 and half inch donut cutter im only getting 5 donuts. made a 2nd batch and same issue. recipe states around 12. what could I be doing wrong?

    • #
      Tessa — June 21, 2021 at 1:42 pm

      Strange, I haven’t heard of this issue before! I also use a 3 1/2 inch doughnut cutter (linked above the recipe), and as long as the dough is rolled out to about 1/2 inch thickness, you should get about 12 doughnuts and holes.

      • #
        Matt — June 30, 2021 at 2:17 pm

        I had the same problem. Made the recipe exact measuring everything. At 1/2” size I got about 5-6 donuts so I made them about 1/4” and they are delicious but don’t have much of a middle, they’re thin

  15. #
    Jess — June 5, 2021 at 5:33 am

    The flavor was amazing! My dough was tough. I used coconut sugar and yogurt because it’s what I had on hand. Not sure if that contributed to a very dense result. I’ll try again!

    • #
      Tessa — June 7, 2021 at 2:53 pm

      Your substitutions could very well be the issue. I’d also make sure you’re not adding too much flour! I’d recommend getting a digital scale if you don’t already have one to ensure accurate measuring 🙂

  16. #
    Cindy — May 13, 2021 at 3:10 pm

    Can the dough or the fried doughnuts be frozen? The recipe is too much for me to use at a single time. Wondering how to best keep the extra.

    • #
      Tessa — May 14, 2021 at 1:00 pm

      I think that should work! As long as you par-freeze the unfried doughnuts on a sheet pan until they’re solid, then place them in an airtight container, they should hold up just fine. I’d allow them to sit at room temperature for a little while before frying. Enjoy!

  17. #
    Nara — May 1, 2021 at 2:07 pm

    I am a huge fan of nutmeg and added DOUBLE the amount called for. I ground it fresh, too. Excellent. I didn’t use canola as I don’t like the rapeseed plant, but found a mix of coconut and avocado to work well. Other than that I followed the recipe to a ‘T’ and everyone at my house loved it! I’ve made them many many times.

    Amanda — April 23, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    I can’t have milk, due to an allergy, however, I substituted cashewmilk yogurt for the sour cream and it worked very well. Was really sticky and I didn’t add more flour until after but it still worked in the end and they tasted amazing! I appreciate the tip of 2 min for frying. This was my first time frying anything and first time making donuts. Very happy! Thank you!

    Chris Bartlome — April 22, 2021 at 2:44 pm

    Trying this in air fryer. Taste of them is ok but came out very dry. Cooked just until got a nice folded color so don’t think was over cooked. Not sure where to adjust. Maybe more sour cream next time.

      Tessa — April 23, 2021 at 11:31 am

    Michael Turpin — April 5, 2021 at 12:25 pm

    I liked the ingredients listed by weight. That was great.

    That was way too much nutmeg. It’s almost overpowering. I wish I had read all the way to the bottom first, I would have halved it for sure.

    I followed the instructions to the letter and the dough was absurdly sticky. We couldn’t roll it; we had to use spoons to roll them into little balls.

  23. #
    Sugi — March 31, 2021 at 7:30 pm

    I made this recipe. The dough came out perfectly. I used cake flour and followed all directions. My only problem was frying them. I hoped they would puff up more and they came out heavy. Then glazed them. Still just too heavy for me. I had fun trying it.

    I love trying your recipes. Biscuits were my fave.

    • #
      Tessa — April 1, 2021 at 9:52 am

      Oh no, they certainly should not have been so dense. Did you weigh your flour? Was the oil the correct temp? Is it possible an ingredient was incorrectly measured or left out? I had great success with this recipe and many others have too so I’m thinking something went wrong along the way for you. Better luck next time!

      This recipe was specifically designed to be fried. The results would probably be quite different in texture if you baked them. I have a few baked doughnut recipes you may want to check out if that’s what you prefer: https://handletheheat.com/category/donut 🙂

    I did make the dough the night before and they fried up perfectly the next morning. It was a little tough from the cold at first, but it worked itself out pretty well.
    I ended up putting a bit more water in the glaze, as my first two got coated too thickly.

    Every doughnut recipe I’ve read tells you to fry doughnuts in oil heated between 350-365 degrees. Why do you recommend 325 degrees? Also I think the doughnuts would have been lighter if I used 3tsp.(1tablespoon) baking powder instead of 1 1/2 teaspoons. Appreciate your input. Doughnuts were still very tasty..
    Thank you. Angela

    I’m NOT a baker (but a decent cook).
    These turned out pretty good. I really don’t understand
    some of the comments for folks that said theirs completely flopped.
    Especially when they followed the recipe exactly.
    No, they are not donut-shop quality, but for a home cook trying this
    recipe for the first time (and even fried donuts), they are tasty.
    Thanks for the recipe and tips.

    USER ERROR….WOOOOOW, what a disaster. I’m a great cook and a great baker. Not sure how I missed the mark so much on this recipe. I misread the recipe and added in eggs AND egg yolks, and added all wet ingredients at once which made for a mess.

    In the end, after trying to salvage my mess, I made a chocolate icing which the kids loved. This was more like a biscuit with delicious icing.

    What’s the best way to store these and how long are they “good” for? Can you freeze them after glazing?

    • #
      Tessa — November 5, 2020 at 2:33 pm

      Doughnuts are best served the day they are made but may be stored in an air tight container at room temperature for a few days. Unglazed doughnuts are best frozen as soon as they’ve cooled after baking or frying. Refresh in a 300°F oven or in the microwave at 50% power until heated before glazing.

    I’m wondering if the frying temperature is correct in this recipe (325 degrees). There’s a credit pointing to where the recipe originally came from, and that recipe says 375 degrees. Most sites say that donuts should be fried somewhere between 350-375 degrees, so 325 seems a little low. Have people been successful with this recipe when frying at 325?

    Can I make several donuts, cook a couple, and freeze remaining for future due?

    Can you refrigerate dough overnight?

    I weighed all my ingredients and my doughnuts were terrible. I feel like it was likely too much flour. Anyone else have this issue?

    These donut are “ Heavenly.” Very simple recipe! I did only use 1/4 tsp. Nutmeg. That was plenty.

    Success! Made some changes so that they were vegan and they turned out great!

    Can these be oven baked or air fried to eliminate the oil?

    I made my dough into fritters instead of donut shapes and they were delicious. Will make this one again.
