  • Donut pan
  • large bowl
  • Small mixing bowl
  • spatula
  • whisk


For the Donuts

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 0.25 tsp salt
  • 0.333333333333 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 0.25 cup canola oil
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 0.5 cup sour cream
  • 0.25 cup dry champagne (or prosecco)

For the Glaze

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


  • 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.

To make the glaze --

  • 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!
