Champagne Donuts & White Chocolate Glaze Recipe

Whoever says champagne isn’t the best way to celebrate…anything… has never met a champagne donut. As in champagne IN a donut. Sweets, carbs, sprinkles AND bubbly all in one, what could be a better way to celebrate than that?!

Ok, I admit, maybe I, Alyssa, am aging myself a bit by saying I’d rather celebrate with donuts than a drink. But truthfully, I just want to drink my champagne and eat it (in the form of donuts), too. Ya know what I mean? Luckily, we can do just that with this champagne donuts & white chocolate glaze recipe.

And donut worry (couldn’t resist the opportunity for a good pun!), just because these donuts sound and look all fancy doesn’t mean they’re complicated to make. Personally, I think they’re even easier to make than opening an actual bottle of champagne (please tell me I’m not the only one who struggles with that!).

No, but really…And the flavors are just so good! The donuts are super moist thanks to the sour cream, the champagne is subtle but accented just right with the orange zest and the whole thing is tied together perfectly with a white chocolate glaze. Not a bad way to celebrate, indeed…

Champagne Donuts & White Chocolate Glaze Recipe

  • Yield: 6 large donuts

Ingredients

For the Donuts

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup dry champagne (or prosecco)

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons dry champagne (or prosecco)
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • sprinkles

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a donut pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and orange zest.
  • In a separate small mixing bowl, combine the egg, oil and sour cream. Stir until well mixed.
  • Add the egg mixture and champagne to the dry ingredients and use a rubber spatula to gently fold everything together, just until combined. Divide the batter equally among the donut pan. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown (Do not over-bake or they will be dry!). Remove from the pan and allow to cool on a baking rack.
  • While the donuts cool, make the white chocolate glaze. In a small pan, set over low heat, combine the white chocolate and heavy cream. Stir constantly, until the chocolate has melted. Immediately remove from the heat, and add the champagne, 1 tablespoon at a time, until you reach the consistency you prefer.
  • Spoon the glaze over the donuts (I used about 3-4 tablespoons per donut), decorate with sprinkles and “toast” to some darn good champagne donuts!

These taste best day of, but if you somehow happen to have any donuts left, store them in an airtight container to help them last a day or two more.

What do you think? Would you rather stick to just drinking your champagne, or are you all about eating it, too?!
