|Misc||Child Friendly, Freezable|
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 Large eggs
- 1 cup sour cream (preferably not low-fat)
- 1/2 cup sugar

|In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda.|
|In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, and sugar. Stir in oil.|
|Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring just until combined. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla, orange zest and dried cranberries.|
|Spoon batter into a lightly greased doughnut pan, filling each cavity about 2/3 full.

While doughnuts are cooling, prepare the glaze.|
