Old Fashioned Sour Cream Donuts

Posted on
This Old Fashioned Sour Cream Donuts recipe is a total classic. They are soft, moist and cake-y. And who can resist that glaze they’re dipped in? DELISH! The best thing about them though (besides how easy they are to make), is that you don’t have to wait hours for them to rise! They can be whipped together fairly quickly for your snarfing pleasure
For the donuts
  1. 2 1/4 cup cake flour
  2. 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  3. 1 tsp salt
  4. 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  5. 1/2 cup sugar
  6. 2 Tbsp butter, room temperature
  7. 2 large egg yolks
  8. 1/2 cup sour cream
  9. Canola oil, for frying

 

 

For the glaze

 

  1. 3 1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  2. 1 1/2 tsp corn syrup
  3. 1/4 tsp salt
  4. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  5. 1/3 cup hot water

 

INTRUCTIONS
  1. In a small bowl sift together the cake flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and sugar together until well combined (the texture will be sandy). Add the egg yolks and mix well. Add the dry ingredients in three batches, alternating with the sour cream, and ending with flour. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
  3. When the dough is almost finished chilling, make the glaze by whisking together all ingredients in a large shallow bowl.
  4. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll it out on a floured surface to about 1/2 inch thickness. Use a donut cutter (or two round biscuit cutters) to cut as many donuts out as possible. You should get around 12.
  5. Pour about 2 inches of canola oil into a heavy bottomed pot. Heat the oil to 325° F. Fry the donuts 2-3 at a time, being careful not to overcrowd the pot. Fry for about 2 minutes on each side, being careful not to let them burn. Remove them to a plate lined with paper towels to soak up the grease.
  6. Place a wire cooling rack above a sheet pan. Dip donuts in the glaze, covering on each side, and place on the wire rack. Let sit for 15-20 minutes until glaze is set.

    Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
