For Chocolate Chip Donuts:

  • 1 cup (120 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (107 grams) light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (114 grams) full-fat sour cream
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons (35 grams) unsalted butter melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup (170 grams) chocolate chopped or chocolate chips

For Vanilla Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup (57 grams) powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream or milk


For Chocolate Chip Donuts:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray your donut mold with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the flour, light brown sugar, salt, baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients, make sure the melted butter has cooled or it will curdle the sour cream and cook the egg.
  • Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until they are well combined. The dough will be much thicker than you think it will be, so don’t be alarmed. Also, be sure not to overmix your dough or your baked donuts will be tough.
  • Fold in the chocoalte chips.
  • Spoon or pipe the batter into your molds and fill them up to the top. If you’re using a silicone mold, place it on a cookie sheet before you put them in the oven, this will make it easier to get them in and out of the oven.
  • Place your donuts in the pre-heated oven. They usually take about 15-17 minutes to bake, but I started checking them around 10 minutes to see if the pan needs to be turned. You’ll know they are finished when you lightly press on a donut and it springs back.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then remove from pan and allow to cool.

For Vanilla Glaze:

  • In a small bowl combine all of the ingredients and whisk until free of lumps.
  • Add more milk if the glaze is too thick.
  • Dip the tops of the donuts in the glaze.
