INGREDIENTS - Makes 10 x 3-½” Donuts

240 gms  Castor Sugar
90 gms   Egg Yolks
35 gms  Unsalted Butter, softened
380 gms Sour Cream

600 gms  Pastry Flour
15 gms Baking Powder
½ teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
3 gms Table Salt
Canola oil for frying

In a stand mixer bowl add sugar, egg yolks and butter.  With a paddle attachment beat on high until light and fluffy.

Add sour cream, and mix on a medium speed until smooth.

In a separate bowl, sift and combine all dry ingredients.  

Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, one quarter at a time until combined.  Do not over mix.

Line a clean bowl with plastic wrap so it  generously hangs over the edges. Spray with cooking spray, or lightly oil.  Scrap the dough into the bowl (on top of the plastic wrap), firmly push together until it’s even, then wrap the plastic wrap around it so it’s airtight.

Chill dough for a minimum of 1 hour.  Can be in the fridge for up to a week wrapped well.

When ready to roll, line a baking tray with wax paper and spray with cooking spray, or lightly oil.

Roll dough ½” thick, cut into donut shapes, place on tray and chill again.

While dough is chilling again, heat oil in a saucepan until it’s 177’C.  Make sure you have a minimum depth of 3”.

When the oil is to the correct temperature drop in the donuts using a slotted spoon and fry for 3-½ to 4-½ minutes.

Dip in vanilla glaze when still very warm.


120 gms Milk
500 gms Icing Sugar
½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Mix all together in a bowl until smooth.  Cover until needed.
