Tools I Used To Make Keto Sour Cream Glazed Donuts

  • Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. I appreciate your support so much guys!
     
  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Whisk or Fork
  • Spatula
  • Oil or Butter – for greasing
  • Microwave – to place dough to rise – optional
  • Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer – I didn't use one, but you can. Just be sure to only knead the dough for 3-5min to not over-do it.
  • Baking Sheet 
  • Parchment Paper
  • Large Pot – For frying
  • Slotted Spoon

Keto Sour Cream Glazed Donuts Ingredients

  • Water 
  • Heavy Cream – Adds flavour to the batter and reduces the amount of gluten formation.
  • Salted Butter – Adds fat to the batter similar to heavy cream, again reducing total gluten formation and allowing for a softer dough.
  • Egg – Aids in rise and flavour of our donuts.
  • Dry Active Yeast – Give our donuts the fluffy texture we know and love. Make sure your yeast is ACTIVE! See the tips section for how to store your yeast to keep it fresh and how to test if it's still active.
  • Sugar – Yes, real white sugar. This is necessary for the yeast to feed the yeast so it can activate. It's converted to CO2 and alcohol so you do not have to worry about it affecting your diet.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener – My favourite sweetener overall, blends well into baked goods and tastes great! It's ideal for glazes.
  • Keto Bread and Pastry Flour –  This is a keto-friendly flour I developed that acts and has a taste super similar to white flour. It can be used to make all kinds of keto breads, pastries, crusts, etc. If you've only ever used almond flour and/or coconut flour.. Then I promise it will blow your mind!
  • Salt – Use a little more if using unsalted butter.
  • Nutmeg – This gives the donuts their traditional “Donut flavour”. You can leave it out but I highly recommend it! 
  • Cinnamon – Optional
  • Vegetable or Coconut Oil – Either work well for frying the donuts, coconut oil has a little more of a flavour to it.
  • Sour Cream – Adds a bit of tanginess to our glaze.
  • Vanilla Extract – Pure and artificial both work.

Tips For Making Keto Sour Cream Glazed Donuts

  • Make sure your egg is at room temperature before adding it. 
  • Make sure your yeast is active by adding 1 tsp sugar and 1 tsp yeast to a cup of warm water. Leave it for 5 min. If it becomes frothy/bubbles up then it's active, if not, you need some new yeast. 
  • Use canned coconut milk for the heavy cream and vegan butter for the butter for a dairy free version.
  • If you have a fryer, you can use that instead of the pot method!

If they fry dark brown too quickly, your oil is likely too hot. If they don't sizzle and begin frying in the first 5-10s then your oil is likely too cold. 
  14. Fry each donut for ~30s or so per side, remove using a slotted spoon and place onto a plate lined with paper towel to soak up excess oil. Repeat for all of the donuts and donut holes. keto donuts frying keto fried donut
