|Total time||27 minutes|
|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
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon orange zest
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries (finely chopped)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-2 tablespoon orange juice (more if needed to achieve drizzling consistency)
|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. Bake at 350 for approximately 12 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of one of the doughnuts comes out clean. Dump doughnuts from pan immediately and cool on a wire rack. While doughnuts are cooling, prepare the glaze.|
|For the glaze, stir together powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and orange juice, adding the juice 1 tablespoon at a time until the glaze is a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over doughnuts.|
These little gems are so delicious, we devour them almost as fast as I can pull them out of the oven! These are best served warm, but they will save in an air-tight container for up to one week.
