  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon (yes tablespoon, not teaspoon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt (optional and to taste)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (or Powdered Buttermilk)
  • 1/3 cup sour cream (light is okay, plain Greek yogurt may be substituted)
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 9 mini donuts (I used Entenmann’s Cinnamon Pop’Ems, any mini donut from a grocery bakery, Krispy Kreme, Dunkin’ Donuts, or donut holes may be used; or make homemade mini donuts using either the Baked Vanilla Donuts or Baked Cinnamon Bun Donuts)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (melted, half of one stick)
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • milk (splash, or cream, only if necessary for consistency)
