Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 9 glazed donuts
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 1 Tbsp whole milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp whole milk
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mist donut pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sour cream, egg, vanilla, and oil; whisk until well-combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until fully incorporated.
  3. Using a spoon, spread the batter evenly in each donut cavity, filling just over half full.
  4. Bake for 13-15 minutes, until the donuts are golden brown and springy to touch. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes, and then remove the donuts from the pan onto a cooling rack.
  5. Meanwhile, combine the ingredients for the glaze in a shallow bowl. After the donuts have come to room temperature, dip each donut into the glaze. For best results, serve immediately.
