Make these delicious sour cream baked doughnuts for a festive Christmas morning! They are ready to devour in under 30 minutes.
I heard that Santa really likes you to leave out homemade doughnuts on Christmas Eve. I’ve also heard that he likes beer. Who really knows which one of those is true. I do know that everyone seems to like these baked doughnuts, especially fresh from the oven.

Before you start with the baked doughnuts aren’t real doughnuts nonsense, I’m going to tell you that yes, these are like a cake doughnut, not light and fried like doughnuts from the doughnut shop. I can’t eat fried doughnuts. I want to. I love the idea, but it makes me feel gross. So I don’t. But these, these sour cream baked doughnuts I could eat all day long. Yep.
The best part is that you can make them from start to finish in 30 minutes! That’s perfect for Christmas day or really any day.
Oh and if you substitute eggnog for the milk in the recipe, it’s amazing!
