Champagne Donuts & White Chocolate Glaze Recipe
Champagne in a donut. Sweets, carbs, sprinkles AND bubbly all in one, what could be a better way to celebrate than that?!
Small mixing bowl
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
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!
