Coffee Cake Donuts with Vanilla Glaze

IngredientsFor the crumb topping:

  • 1/4 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into tiny cubes
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 and 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

For the donuts:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup full-fat sour cream
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature

For the vanilla glaze:

  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray a 6 mold donut pan with non-stick baking spray; set aside.

For the crumb topping:

  1. In a small bowl combine the sugar, the flour, and cinnamon. Add in the butter cubes and quickly work them into the mixture until it resembles a coarse meal; chill the topping in the freezer while making the donut batter.

For the donuts:

  1. In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl whisk together the wet ingredients. Gently fold the wet mixture into the dry mixture – don’t over mix!
  2. Spoon or pipe the batter into the prepared doughnut pan. Divide crumb topping evenly among donut tops, then bake for 10-11 minutes, or until the doughnuts spring back when lightly pressed. Allow doughnuts to cool for 10 minutes in the pan before gently lifting them out and transferring to a wire rack to cool for a few more minutes.

For the glaze:

  1. In a small bowl whisk together the confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla. Drizzle over donuts and serve at once.
