Sour Cream Cake Donut is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Just baked this, thick batter, very little taste, only browned on one side. I will be looking for another donut recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tender and tasty I will never need another baked donut recipe. These are amazing. I made a third of the recipe for 7 perfect full sized donuts. These were good even when cool, but fantastic when warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! The recipe is for their 20 cavity FULL size donuts...not minis. It works perfectly to make 20 regular donuts at one time. Used it with my new pan not knowing what to expect. Amazing, cinnamon sugar baked donuts first time around; hubby couldn't stop raving about them! Of course the kids love 'em too, and I am thrilled with the ease of popping out 20 healthier than usual donuts at a time. Thanks Wilton for a great product and recipe!
