  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • For the glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a donut pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla. Mix until combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
  5. Using a spoon, spoon the batter into the prepared donut pan, filling each cavity about ¾ full.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a donut comes out clean.
  7. Remove the donuts from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  8. To make the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar, melted butter, milk, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium bowl until smooth.
  9. Dip each cooled donut in the glaze, turning to coat both sides. Place the glazed donuts on a wire rack to let the glaze set before serving.
