Baked Sour Cream Oven Donuts | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book

Updated on August 27, 2011

If you like the sweet cake style baked doughnuts, this recipe is for you. The sour cream gives it an adult sophistication coupled with the child like joy of a sweet treat. It goes best with a good old cup of coffee in the morning. It sort of brings back the memories of the old railroad car diner, where the waitresses all knew ya, (no matter how old you were), knew where you liked to sit, when you were likely to show up, and who won the games, and what you like to eat and drink. They would remember the day you went from drinking chocolate milk, with your doughnut, to coffee. They valued a ten cent tip from a newspaper boy, more than a fiver from the businessmen; and they hugged you like a mother when you came home on leave from overseas. Their names were Jill, and Peg, and Sue, and the guy over the grill was Jack, or Bud. They were everywhere in America, but no where in particular, for many of us in the military they were part of the definition of ‘my home town’. So here are some good memories via food that you can pass to a new generation, Do Enjoy…
