These chocolate donuts were easy to make, light and delicious.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 20-24
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • ⅓ cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled for a few minutes
  • 2¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Oil for frying
  • 1½ cups icing (powdered) sugar
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Mix sour cream, sugar and eggs together using your mixer.
  2. Add melted butter and mix again.
  3. Sift together all the dry ingredients and mix into your wet ingredients until the dough forms. It should be a bit sticky.
  4. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  5. Preheat cooking oil to 360F (I've found anywhere between 350-375F will work)
  6. On a lightly floured surface (I use a large silicone mat) roll the dough about ½ inch thick.
  7. Cut with a donut cutter and fry for about a minute and a half, then flip and fry for another 30 seconds or so. Remove and place onto a rack or paper towels to drain.
  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the sugar, milk and vanilla and mix until smooth.
  2. Remove from the neat and dip the donuts into the glaze to coat and place on a wire rack over a baking sheet to cool. (these will drip just a bit)
