Micro’s Cake Donuts


These are kinda like Entenmann’s Donuts but not.  If you have a donut pan, you can make them in about 30 minutes.  No yeast, no frying, just sprinkles.  I started with this recipe. Eat them all in one day. You are in quarantine so there is no reason not to exercise. You’ve got this.


1/2 cup sour cream or yogurt (strained so it is not too wet)
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup cake flour (all-purpose will work too)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoon corn syrup
2 teaspoons water
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Sprinkles for decoration


Doughnut: Preheat oven to 350. Grease donut pan with oil or cooking spray.

Whisk together the sour cream/yogurt, egg, vanilla, butter, oil, & sugar in a bowl.

Add flour, soda, & salt, & stir together until well combined.

Fill donut pan with batter & bake for 12-16 minutes or until the top is springy to the touch & the sides are turning golden brown. Remove from oven & let cool in pan for 5-10 minutes then transfer to cooling rack.

Glaze: Place chocolate, butter, corn syrup and water in bowl and place in microwave. Melt in 20 second increments. Whisk in powdered sugar. Use immediately.

Assemble: Dip donuts in chocolate glaze and place on a glazing rack.  Put some paper towels underneath so you don’t get chocolate drips everywhere.  Add sprinkles.
