Servings 6 donuts
Author Laura Doerr


  • 1 cup flour
  • 6 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp buttermilk
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 peaches peeled & diced

Peach Glaze

  • 1/2 peach peeled & pureed
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 cups powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees, and grease the donut pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt. Add in the buttermilk, egg, and vanilla. Stir until just combined. Gently stir in the diced peaches.
  3. Spoon the batter into a piping bag or zip top plastic bag, this will greatly help to get the dough into the donut pan evenly and cleanly. Pipe into greased donut pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Donuts should spring back to the touch. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove from pan onto a cooling rack. Cool completely before icing.
  4. In a shallow dish combine the puréed half peach, vanilla extract, and 1 cup of powdered sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Evaluate the icing consistency. If you want it thicker, add more powdered sugar, if you need to thin it out puree the other half of the peach and use as needed, or add a tiny splash of milk or water.
  5. Dip each cooled donut into the glaze to coat the top. Let dry on the cooling rack. Enjoy immediately!
