I was hoping for a doughnut that taste like a "Krispy Cream Sour Cream doughnut." This was a very good cake doughnut made with sour cream... oh well the kids loved them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar and vanilla until mixture is pale and thick; add sour cream and combine well.
  2. Sift flour together with baking powder, baking soda, salt and cardamon.
  3. Add flour to egg mixture and stir until just combined (it will be sticky).
  4. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface, sprinkle additional flour over and roll dough out to 5/8 of an inch thick.
  5. Cut as many rounds as possible with a 3 inch cutter dipped in flour, and cut out centers too.
  6. Gather the scraps into a ball, reroll and cut out more doughnuts in the same manner.
  7. Make doughnut ‘holes’ with any bits remaining.
  8. Flatten doughnuts and holes gently until ½ inch thick and fry in batches in hot oil for 1 ½ minutes on each side, until golden-brown.
  9. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
  10. If desired, while still warm, dredge with sugar, shaking off excess.
