Lightly glazed sour cream donuts

January 24, 2018

It’s been awhile since I made a new donut recipe, they are one of my favorite things to bake. I think because our minds associate donuts with indulgences and I love making them guilt free! These sour cream donuts are light and fluffy and so delicious, they are just very lightly glazed to finish them off with just enough sweetness. I will confess I am not a fan of sour cream on its own, you won’t find me dipping things in it or using it as a topping, but mixed in to recipes I don’t mind it and you truly can’t taste the sour cream in these donut’s (in case your worried about it like picky me would be ha!) They are just 4 freestyle smart points each, if you want to leave the glaze of they are only 3 points each.

Serves: 6
4SP blue, green & purple/3PP
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • ⅓ cup light sour cream
  • 2.5 Tbsp non fat plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp icing sugar (confectionary sugar)
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a regular 6 hole donut pan.
  2. In a bowl whisk together your egg and sugar, add in your sour cream, yogurt, vanilla and mix well.
  3. Stir in your flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. Divide into your 6 donut holes, do not fill right to the rim or you might not have enough batter for 6 and they rise up.
  5. Bake in the oven for approx 18 minutes.
  6. Let cool 5 minutes, for glaze mix your icing sugar and milk together on a flat plate, then dip donuts in glaze, it will be enough to just lightly glaze them and add a little sweetness, icing is optional though.
