HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Stir All-Purpose Flour (3/4 cup) , Dark Brown Sugar (1/2 cup) , Butter (1/3 cup) , Chopped Pecans (1/3 cup) , Ground Cinnamon (1 tsp) and Ground Nutmeg (1/2 tsp) together thoroughly in a mixing bowl until it is a uniform mixture. Set it in the refrigerator while you work on the donuts.
Step 2
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (176 degrees C) and spray two donut pans, each with 6 molds, really well with Non-Stick Baking Spray (to taste) .
Step 3
Whisk the All-Purpose Flour (1 1/3 cups) , Baking Powder (1/2 Tbsp) , Ground Cinnamon (1 tsp) , and Salt (1 pinch) together in a bowl to aerate the dry ingredients.
Step 4
Set up a stand mixer with the paddle attachment and combine the Dark Brown Sugar (3/4 cup) and Butter (2 Tbsp) in its bowl. Beat them together until fluffy.
Step 5
Add in the Buttermilk (1/2 cup) and Egg (1) . Finally, slowly add in the dry ingredients until you have a soft, sticky batter.
Step 6
Transfer the batter to a piping bag and pipe a thick, single layer into each of the molds. You should get an even dozen.
Step 7
Take out the topping mixture and crumble it up. Sprinkle a thick layer on top of each donut and press the crumbs firmly into the donut batter so that it all holds together.
Step 8
Bake them on the same rack of the oven for 15 minutes, until golden brown on top and fluffy.
Step 9
Let them cool a few minutes, then transfer them to a rack to cool completely. Serve immediately with coffee! They also keep really well for a couple of days sealed in a container.
