I can’t think of anything better than a warm donut on a weekend morning with a cup of coffee in hand. That literally sounds like my heaven. And these old fashioned sour cream donuts are my absolute favorite ever. The beautiful thing about these donuts is that they aren’t yeasted! The whole recipe, from start to finish, comes together in an hour. Meaning, you are one hour away from the cakiest, best old fashioned donuts ever! It’s basically like making cookie dough and then frying it. They are too easy to not make all the time. Plus, the glaze is where it’s at.
Browned butter, coffee and vanilla bean?! I can’t think of anything I would rather eat. And if you want to make it even easier on yourself (I did this, for the record), you can make the dough the evening before you want to enjoy them, roll them out, cut them and just refrigerate the donuts overnight. So all I did when I woke up was heat up some oil, fry the donuts, glaze them and make a french press of my favorite coffee. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! Don’t forget the donut holes too, because they make the perfect little vessel for dunking in your morning coffee.
