Growing up, I remember my mom would make donuts, just out of the blue. Now that I'm grown and I know what goes into creating a recipe, I really think she had to be in the mood to make the donuts because donut making didn't happen very often. It seemed like they were a LOT of work.

Her favorite kind of donuts were the ones you dipped in sugar while they were still warm. Mmmm, so good! Eventually, I may have to try those.

The result of my cravings? These yummy chocolate glazed donuts.

Chocolate donuts don't last long in the Lockcuff household; in fact, they disappear rather quickly.

Lucky for me, these were super easy to make.

Ingredients do include sour cream, and they have a more cake-like, whoopie pie type of texture. I really want to make them just a bit lighter next time, but they really are quite yummy just the way they are.

After rolling out the dough and cutting each donut, we used a wok to fry the donuts.

Then after draining the donuts on paper bags, I dipped them in a simple powdered sugar glaze while still a bit warm (but cool enough to handle).

Let them drip on a wire rack, and eventually the glaze will harden to a deliciously sweet, slightly crispy outer covering on the surface of each donut. Yummo!

Below you'll find a printable recipe. Enjoy!

Equipment

  • Rolling Pin
  • Donut Cutter
  • Brown Paper Lunch Bags
  • Wire Rack

Ingredients

Donuts:

Glaze:

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream or mix together the unsalted butter and sugar.
  • Add the egg, vanilla extract, and sour cream to the creamed mixture, mixing well.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, sift or whisk together the dry ingredients, including the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, mixing well.
  • Roll the dough out on a floured surface to about 1/2 inch thickness.
  • Cut the donuts with a donut cutter or cup.
  • Heat 1-2 inches of canola oil in a large skillet over low to medium heat.
  • Fry each donut in the hot canola oil, cooking one side for 2-3 minutes, then turning to cook the other side another 2-3 minutes, or 'til done.
  • Drain the donuts on paper that will absorb the excess grease; brown paper lunch sacks work great!
  • To make the glaze, mix the softened butter, vanilla extract, almond extract, powdered sugar, and milk in a small mixing bowl. The glaze needs to be a thinner consistency, so it may require a bit more milk.
  • While still warm but cool enough to handle, dip the donuts in the glaze, and allow them to drip dry on a wire rack.
  • Serve with a mug of cold milk or a nice cup of hot coffee.
