Prep Time 20 minutes

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla

  • Additional sprinkles for tops


  1. Whisk together flour, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in a mixing bowl.

  3. Spoon batter into a ziplock bag and snip off the corner. Squeeze the batter into a well greased donut pan. Divide the batter evenly into the six donut wells so the donuts will bake evenly.

  5. For glaze: Whisk together powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, salt, and milk in a small bowl, adding enough milk to get a thin consistency.
