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 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted


  • 2 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons eggnog
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Melt butter in microwave safe bowl and allow to cool while you prep other ingredients.
  • Spray a doughnut pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking salt, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.
  • Whisk together.
  • In another bowl combine both sugars, egg, eggnog, vanilla and butter,
  • Whisk all together until sugars are dissolved.
  • Gently pour wet ingredients into the flour mixture and use a wooden spoon to gently fold the batter until all is fully incorporated.
  • Fill donut cavities about 1/2 way
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
  • Remove from pan and place on wired racks to cool.
  • Cool completely before dipping in glaze.


  • In a bowl combine powdered sugar, vanilla, eggnog and milk.
  • Whisk all together until it's at a glaze like consistency.


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.
Seal the bag and snip off a corner and fill the donut pan this way.
If you wish you can use less eggnog and more milk to make the glaze.
Only add a tablespoon of each at a time until the consistency is right.
