I don’t want to confuse you.
Because all kinds of havoc is created when people get confused about baked goods.
I’ll explain below, but for now, I just want to tell you that even though this recipe is for sour cream donuts, they don’t taste like your typical sour cream donut.
They are kinda chewy.
With a little Italian Zeppole thrown in.
And some funnel cake.
However, the recipe was for fried donuts, and I decided to bake the first set. Bad idea in this case. The baked ones are good with glaze, yet I’m not too thrilled with them.
But I had to show you a picture because they’re cute, aren’t they? 🙂
Now, I never fry anything in my house, but my husband convinced me that we needed to try SOME of these fried.
So he fried the rest of the dough:
And no, these don’t taste like donuts either.
Let’s call them Dough Balls of Yumminess.
They are best eaten fresh, and warm. With powdered sugar. (They’re ok when they cool, but not nearly as good.)
And now to explain why I didn’t want to confuse you.
I’ve experienced some strange situations caused by people who get confused by baked goods. For example:
Me (handing a person a baked good): “Let me know what you think.”
Person: “It’s ok, but this muffin is a little too dense, so I can’t rate it very high.”
Me: “It’s a cookie cup.”
Person: “Oh!! A cookie?? Then it’s awesome! Delicious! I love it!…..”
Well, you get the idea.
So, if you decide to make these fried Dough Balls of Yumminess—please remember:
Good, now you’ll be fine. 🙂
And I’m off to continue my quest for the perfect baked mini donut. Until next time…
Sour Cream Mini Donuts (adapted from maryannatwork’s recipe on Food.com)
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup sour cream (I used low fat)
- 3/4 cup milk
- 3 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg (I didn’t use nutmeg)
- 1/3 teaspoon baking soda
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 orange rind, grated
Beat eggs in a bowl. Add sugar, sour cream, and milk and beat thoroughly.
Sift dry ingredients together 3 times. Add orange rind.
Stir into egg mixture to make donut batter.
Drop spoonfuls of batter into hot oil. Flip over when bottom side is brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
Don’t forget the powdered sugar.
Eat while warm and fresh!!
