- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease a nonstick doughnut pan (baking spray with flour is a good option, but butter or shortening will also work).
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, kosher salt, and baking powder.
- In a separate large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, large egg, vegetable oil, and pure vanilla extract.
- Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, along with the chopped cherries, stirring until just combined (do not overmix).
- Spoon the batter evenly into the doughnut pan, leaving a small amount of room at the top of each cavity. This will give the batter a chance to solidify before it rises and help it maintain its shape.
- Bake the doughnuts for 7 minutes. Gently turn them out onto a cooling rack and allow to cool.
- While the doughnuts are cooling, prepare the cherry glaze. Place the 1/2 cup cherries in a small bowl, and gently mash them using a potato masher (you can also process them in a blender or food processor).
- Using the back of a spoon, press the cherries through a fine mesh strainer to extract the juice. Discard the pulp and reserve 2 tablespoons of fresh cherry juice.
- In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the confectioners’ sugar, cherry juice, lemon juice and cherry brandy.
- Drizzle over the doughnuts and allow the glaze to set.
