  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup of buttermilk

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. First combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Add in wet ingredients and combine. Add batter to greased doughnut pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Toss the pecans and toffee in a food processor until a pecan flour forms. Transfer to a separate bowl.
