Using a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg and mix it well.
Using an electric mixer, combine the brown sugar, molasses, eggs, and vanilla extract and give it a good mix. As you continue mix the wet ingredients, add in the sour cream and mix it good for a good 30 seconds. Add in the melted butter the mixture and incorporate with the wet ingredients. Slowly add the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and mix until the mixture looks like a ball of dough.
On a flat surface, flour the surface and place the dough on the surface. Flour the dough and knead for a good 15 seconds to form into a ball.
Place the dough on lightly greased bowl. Be sure to lightly grease the dough as well and cover it with ceramic wrap. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour to let the dough rise.
Using the same flat surface, flour the surface. Drizzle a good amount of flour onto the dough and on a rolling pin. Roll out the dough 1-½ inches thick. If the rolling pin sticks to the dough, drizzle flour.
Using a donut cutter cut out the dough in donut forms. Again, be sure to flour the donut cutter to cut through the dough.
Using a frying pan or fryer, pour a good amount of vegetable oil over medium high heat. Place the donuts in the pan and fry them for a minute and a half on each side or until the donuts have a nice brown. Once you take the donuts out, take out the excess oil and place them on a paper towel plate.
Place the fried donuts on cooling rack and let them cool for 10 minutes.
Garnish the donuts with powdered sugar.
