"Yes, you can make Old Fashioned Donuts at home with only a handful of basic ingredients -- and no yeast! Just like your favorite bakery treat, these cake doughnuts have a crisp, golden brown exterior, a light and fluffy inside, and plenty of nooks and crannies to hold that sweet glaze. Perfect for dunking in coffee! Old-fashioned doughnuts are deep fried and then glazed, dusted with sugar or enjoyed plain. They have a rich flavor, thanks to the sour cream, and a crunchier texture than other cake doughnuts. This recipe is actually really easy! It's time consuming -- because there's a lot of waiting and downtime while the dough chills, and then again while the donuts cool -- but there's nothing difficult about it. In fact, it's a lot like making cookies, with one main difference: you're frying the donuts in oil instead of baking them in the oven. Otherwise, it's practically the same process, including mixing, chilling and cutting out dough. "
