Did you hear that?
OK. No big deal. Be very, very quiet and listen again.
Please tell me that you heard it, too.
Please? ‘kay thanks.
That, my friends is the siren call of a doughnut. I hear doughnuts calling to me all the time. They start out kind of quiet and subtle–in a kind of nagging did-I-remember-to-turn-off-the iron kind of way. But if ignored, that call becomes more and more insistent until finally all I can hear is a YOU MUST HAVE A DOUGHNUT!!! sort of chanting in my head. In fact, I
once on occasion have often tried to drive past a Krispy Creme with that incessant doughnut chanting going on in my head, only to do a quick U-turn and come to a screeching halt in the first available parking spot.
You know what I mean, right?
No? Just me, then? Huh.
Now before you go off and click away from here thinking I’m six-shades-of-crazy, feast your eyes on these baked chocolate sour cream doughnuts!
Now do you hear it? Yeah. I thought that might do it. Chocolate Sour Cream Doughnuts will do that to a person every time–they refuse to be ignored.
I defy you to try to ignore a soft, chocolaty doughnut that has been bathed in a real vanilla bean glaze.
More than that, I double-dog-dare you not to take just a teensy pinch off of one of those doughnuts while waiting for that wonderous glaze to set. Even threats of eternal grounding, loss of privileges, and worst of all–threats of not getting to eat a finished doughnut (!!) won’t be able to keep you from taking just the smallest nibble. I don’t care how much willpower you have–it just can not be done.
Just ask my boys.
But in the end, does it really matter? Not a bit. All that matters is that there are doughnuts to be had, and you won’t have to disobey any traffic laws to get one. And while you’re snatching your semi-set doughnut up off the cooling rack, you might as well grab a big glass of milk to wash away the guilt, because these sweet things are baked and not fried. Which in My World puts these doughnuts in the Health Food category.
So I’ll grab the glasses, and you grab the milk.
Then we’ll meet at the table and we’ll solve all the world’s problems over baked chocolate sour cream doughnuts.
Oh! By the way, I’ve also included instructions in the printable recipe for a chocolate ganache coating with sprinkles. I’m a Giver like that.
