MIX DRY INGREDIENTS
MIX WET INGREDIENTS
In a larger bowl, whisk the sour cream, milk, egg, canola oil, and vanilla.
FORM THE BATTER
Add the dry and wet ingredients together, then mix thoroughly until the batter is smooth.
PIPE INTO A DONUT MOLD
Spray a donut pan with cooking spray, then fill each cavity in the donut pan about 3/4 of the way. Once done, send the donuts off to bake!
While the donuts cool, prepare the glaze by microwaving the chocolate chips, butter, and heavy whipping cream. Mix until the chips have melted and you have a smooth sauce.
5 - MAKE THE GLAZE
Once baked and cooled, dip the tops of the chocolate cake donuts into the glaze, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to set. Be sure to add any sprinkles while the glaze is still wet.
