These donuts are not your typical donut. They remind me of old-fashioned donuts, but BETTER! Not overly sweet and just the right amount of crunchy. I promise you will also love these.

Prep: 10 minutes

Cook: 15 minutes


  • 16 oz. of farmers cheese
  • 4 1/2 cups of flour
  • 3 eggs yolks
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tbs. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbs. vinegar
  • vegetable oil for frying (the amount will vary according to the size of your pot or pan, I would say you’d need about 1 inch of oil in the pot)

Side note: I use my standing mixer to combine and kneed the dough. If you do not have one just use a clean, flat work surface and kneed the dough by hand. Follow the same directions as below just doing the work with your hands.


  1. In your standing mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment add in your flour, baking soda, powdered sugar, and salt. Give it a nice mix to combine.
  2. Add in the eggs, sour cream, and vinegar. Turn the mixer on to low and combine for a about a minute or two.
  3. Shut the mixer of and add in your farmers cheese, breaking it up a bit to make the mixture more workable. Mix for about a minute or until the mixture has merged together nicely.
  4. Taking about 1/4 of dough at a time form a round pancake about 1/3 inch thick. Puncture a hole in the middle of the pancake to make it a donut and set aside (watch the video for a better visual).
  5. Once all your donuts are formed add the vegetable oil into your skillet with high sides or a pot with high sides and on medium low heat allow the oil to heat up.
  6. Test the oil with a small amount of dough to see if the temperate is hot enough to start frying our donuts (again watch the video for a better visual).
  7. Placing a few donuts in the pan at a time (about 4 or 5) fry for about 2-3 minutes with the cover on. Once golden brown, remove the cover and flip the donuts to fry for an additional 2 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom, uncovered this time. Remove from pan onto a paper towel lined plate. Let cook for a few minutes, sprinkle with some additional confectioners sugar, and ENJOY!
