Old Fashioned Sour Cream Doughnuts : An Exercise in Experimentation - FMITK: From My Impossibly Tiny Kitchen

It starts with a good base recipe. In this case, it was an adaptation of Hand-Forged Donuts’ recipe via Handle the Heat that I decided to use. I knew I wanted to try a few different things: a different shapea “filled” old fashioned (which I can’t find anywhere on the internets! Has this not been done? One major change between the original recipe and my version – I’m using all-purpose flour instead of cake flour. You’ll need baking powder, flour, sugar, sour cream, eggs, vanilla extract. Cream together the sugar and shortening. Roll the chilled dough out on a very well floured surface to about 1/2″ thick – about 8″ in diameter. Cut out as many rounds and holes as you can.

Tip – cut 3 little slits about 1/8″ deep on the tops of the donuts. Place the doughnuts in the 325F oil. Let the doughnuts cool slightly on a rack set over paper towels. Glaaaaaze. Total time.

I decided to make the muffins and save the doughnuts for another day. Well, here’s another day. I’m so glad I didn’t forget about them because these doughnuts are incredible! They are loaded with a vibrant lemon flavor, their texture is perfectly soft and fluffy, and I love how moist they are.
