For the Donuts:

  1. 2 cup flour
  2. 3/4 cup sugar
  3. 1 tsp baking powder
  4. 1 tsp baking soda
  5. 1 tsp kosher salt
  6. 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  7. 2 eggs
  8. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  9. 3/4 cup milk (I use skim)
  10. 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  11. 15 maraschino cherries, chopped


For the Glaze:

  1. 1/4 cup heavy cream
  2. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  3. 2 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  4. sprinkles



  1. In mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Mix until combined. Add in eggs, vanilla, milk and melted butter. Mix thoroughly. Fold in chopped cherries.
  2. Pour batter into a ziploc bag, snip off the corner of bag. Pipe into greased donut pans. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool in pans 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
  3. For the frosting, heat cream in small saucepan until just before boiling. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla extract and powdered sugar. Add more cream (or powdered sugar) until desired consistency.
  4. To frost donut, dip cooled donut into glaze. Set on wax paper, apply sprinkles immediately (if desired), and allow to set (about 15 minutes) before eating. Enjoy!
