Sour Cream Oven Doughnuts

I made these doughnuts one morning and was very surprised at how good they turned out! They have a cake-like consistency and taste very similar to the fried kind. I will definitely make these again if I'm in the mood for something nice and sweet in the morning!

These were not very good. My husband ate a couple, and said they were more like a sweet biscuit. I thought it tasted like taking a bite of potporri, all I could taste was the nutmeg. I followed the exact recipe. I was hoping that they would have been more moist and cake-like. Sorry! We were disappointed with this recipe!
