Eggnog Donuts

Eggnog Donuts– Baked eggnog flavored donuts which are dipped in an eggnog glaze. 

Eggnog Donuts

This is kind of embarrassing to admit since I am a self proclaimed “foodie,” but I never tried eggnog until a couple of weeks ago….Sad, I know.  I was always afraid I wouldn’t like it, but turns out I do like it. It tastes like melted ice cream. So, after my realization I knew I wanted to bake with it. That’s what we crazy bakers like to do with yummy food/drinks….turn it into an extra indulgent treat!

If you don’t have a donut pan you can get one here. You’re going to want one because I plan on sharing even more donut recipes in the future. Baked donuts are lots of fun to make. Of course, I made an eggnog glaze to dunk these in..which is the funnest part. 🙂

Eggnog Donuts are a fun treat to leave out for Santa. Donuts and Coffee! He could use a warm drink and a little pick me up! 🙂 I understand if you don’t want to shy away from the traditional milk and cookies, though.  Definitely make these before eggnog season is over.

Eggnog Donuts
  1. 1 1/2 cup flour
  2. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  3. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  5. 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  6. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  7. 1/2 cup sugar
  8. 1/4 cup brown sugar
  9. 1 cup eggnog
  10. 1 egg
  11. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  1. 2 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  2. 1/2 tablespoon vanilla
  3. 4 tablespoons eggnog
  4. 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter in microwave safe bowl and allow to cool while you prep other ingredients.
  3. Spray a doughnut pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  4. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking salt, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.
  5. Whisk together.
  6. In another bowl combine both sugars, egg, eggnog, vanilla and butter,
  7. Whisk all together until sugars are dissolved.
  8. Gently pour wet ingredients into the flour mixture and use a wooden spoon to gently fold the batter until all is fully incorporated.
  9. Fill donut cavities about 1/2 way
  10. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
  11. Remove from pan and place on wired racks to cool.
  12. Cool completely before dipping in glaze.
  1. In a bowl combine powdered sugar, vanilla, eggnog and milk.
  2. Whisk all together until it's at a glaze like consistency.
  1. I lined the inside of a glass with a ziploc bag and allows the excess to lay against the outside of the glass and filled the inside with the donut batter.
  2. Seal the bag and snip off a corner and fill the donut pan this way.
  3. If you wish you can use less eggnog and more milk to make the glaze.
  4. Only add a tablespoon of each at a time until the consistency is right.
