  4. Whisk the egg, brown sugar, milk and sour cream together until smooth. Add the melted butter and vanilla extract, whisking until fully combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not over mix. The batter will be very thick

  6. I recommend using a large pastry bag or ziplock bag for ease, as shown in the video. Cut a corner at the bottom of the bag pipe then batter into each donut cup, filling 2/3-3/4 of the way full
