  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Spray donut pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  4. In a large measuring cup, whisk together buttermilk, egg and oil.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk until combined. Do not overmix.
  6. Place the batter in a ziploc bag and close. Snip one corner of the bag.
  7. Pipe the batter out into the prepared pan, filling the donut cavities 2/3 full.
  8. Bake the donuts for 8 to 9 minutes (for me the magic number was 9). The bottom of the donuts should be golden brown and the tops should be light.
  9. Cool the donuts in the pan for 10 minutes. Transfer onto a cooling rack.
  10. Cool completely before glazing.
  11. !to make the glaze:
  12. In a medium mixing bowl, sift powdered sugar through a sieve. That prevents clumps in the glaze.
  13. Add butter and maple glaze and whisk until smooth.
  14. It should be drizzling consistency and not too thick.
  15. Dip donuts in the glaze and place back on the cooling rack. Let the excess glaze drip off.
