  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • For The Frosting!
  • 2 cups powdered sugar sifted.
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a baked donut pan with some olive oil or non-stick spray.
  • Using a stand mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar together until creamed.
  • Add the eggs one at a time scraping down and combining well.
  • In a bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and cloves together.
  • Gradually add the flour to the mixer, starting on low speed and then medium.
  • Once all of the flour has been added, scrape down the sides and add the vanilla.
  • Add the milk slowly until the batter is smooth.
  • Spoon some of the batter into each donut spot to just below the surface height of the pan.
  • Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
  • Let cool on a wire rack and make the frosting.
  • Combine the powdered sugar, milk, syrup and vanilla in a bowl.
  • Using a wooden spoon or strong spatula, mix the sugar together until it gets stiff.
  • Place in the microwave and heat for about 10 seconds.
  • Mix again with your spoon until it has no lumps and is slightly pourable.
  • If the frosting is still too stiff, heat in the microwave for a few seconds at a time until it's runny enough to dip the donuts into.
  • Dip each donut into the frosting and immediately sprinkle with some chopped pecans.
