  • Author: Laura
  • Yield: 6 donuts 1x


These Cinnamon Sugar Sour Cream Baked Donuts are a classic plain donut coated in a light glaze and dusted with cinnamon sugar. Their light, airy texture and moist center makes them irresistibly addicting! 




1 cup white all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

dash of ground nutmeg

1 large egg

1/3 cup white sugar

2/3 cup sour cream

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

Cinnamon Sugar Glaze

1/2 cup confectioners sugar

1 tbsp milk

1/4 cup white sugar

2 tsp ground cinnamon



Preheat oven to 350°F

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg

In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the egg, sugar, sour cream, vegetable oil and vanilla extract

Slowly pour the wet ingredient mixture into the dry and mix until just fully combined

Spray donut pan with non-stick spray

Fill each donut cavity 3/4 full with batter*

Put in the oven to bake for 12 minutes

Remove from oven and set aside to cool for about 15 minutes

Carefully transfer donuts to a cooling rack and cool for at least 15 more minutes

Cinnamon Sugar Glaze

Add the confectioners sugar to a wide**, shallow bowl, whisk in the milk to make a thick glaze

In a small bowl whisk together the white sugar and cinnamon

Place a piece of parchment paper or aluminum foil under the cooling rack***

Dip the cooled donuts one at a time into the glaze and move around to completely coat the top and sides, hold it above the bowl for a few seconds to allow excess glaze to run off back into the bowl and then place back on the cooling rack

Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the donuts to coat

Allow the glaze to set about 10 minutes before eating


*spoon it into the cavity and then use clean hands to spread it out evenly

**wide enough that the donut will fit

***this will catch any excess glaze and cinnamon sugar to make clean-up easy
