Coconut Crunch Donuts

Ingredients
Topping:
  1. 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  3. 2 Tablespoons cold butter
  4. 1 cup sweetened, shredded coconut

Donuts:
  1. 1 cup sour cream
  2. 1 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  4. 2 large eggs
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  8. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  9. sprinkle of cinnamon

Glaze:
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extrac2
  • 2 Tablespoons warm water

Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 350. Spray 2 donut pans (for 12 donuts total) with nonstick spray and set aside.
  • Prepare coconut crunch topping: In a medium bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter and mix with your hands until the mixture is fully combined and forms small crumbs. Mix in coconut.
  • Place mixture in a skillet set over low heat and stir constantly until coconut is toasted and dark golden brown. Remove from heat and pour mixture into a bowl to cool (do NOT leave it in the pan to cool -- coconut browns quickly and because the pan will retain heat, it will continue to toast the coconut).
  • While that mixture cools, prepare your donuts.
