Baked Sour Cream Doughnuts with Gay Lea Gold Premium Sour Cream {Giveaway}

Sour cream is something I always have in my fridge.  I usually use it as a substitute for heavy cream when I cook such as in Daal Makhani or pasta.  I have also used sour cream in brownies and ice cream.  Today I'm sharing a baked treat that uses sour cream.  These Baked Sour Cream Doughnuts are made using Gay Lea Gold Premium Sour Cream.  My usual sour cream is Gay Lea Light Sour Cream and it's always worked wonderfully whenever I use it.  I was excited to see how Gay Lea Gold Premium Sour Cream would differ.  When I opened up the container, I immediately noticed how thick it was.  The flavour was excellent.  I knew whatever I baked with this would turn out to be wonderful.

After much thinking, I decided I would make Baked Sour Cream Doughnuts.  Doughnuts are so quick and easy to make and everyone loves them!  This is a one bowl recipe, no mixer needed!  The first time I made them, I dusted them in icing sugar.  I did this by putting some icing sugar in a Ziploc bag and then adding one doughnut.  Seal the Ziploc bag well and then shake the bag to get the doughnut coated in icing sugar.  Repeat this with all the doughnuts, adding more icing sugar to the bag as needed.  You can even dip them in a vanilla glaze but I prefer these Baked Sour Cream Doughnuts plain.  They are great to have with a cup of tea!

Baked Sour Cream Doughnuts
Adapted from The SemiSweet Sisters

1/2 cup Gay Lea Gold Premium Sour Cream
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350°F and spray the doughnut pans with oil.  I have also tried spraying with baking spray and I found using oil made a darker and crisper doughnut.

In a large bowl, whisk together the sour cream, egg, vanilla extract, oil and sugar.  Add the flour, baking soda and salt.  Stir until combined.

Spoon the dough into the prepared doughnut pans and bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  1. Love these guilt free baked doughnuts...

  2. These sound so nice to have along with a cup of chai or coffee, especially in this cold weather. I haven't baked donuts in forever it seems, and I think Zuni might have a good time mixing these. InshAllah will give these a shot soon :)

  3. These look great! I just recently broke down and got donut pans, so these are a great excuse to break them out again. Like you, I always have sour cream in my fridge.

  4. I'm not a huge fan of donuts but these look wonderfully delish! My favorite holiday dessert to bake is brownies. Chocolatey & decadent!

  5. marble cheesecake...everyone goes nuts for it!
